Vance’s DariFree is suitable for people who are gluten, soya and dairy intolerant. High in calcium, it is marketed as a cholesterol and fat-free alternative to milk. The powder product is packed in cartons and each carton - which retails for £9.75 - can make up to six litres. The powder has a four-year shelf life and, once mixed, lasts up to 12 days in a fridge.
DariFree is handled by VancesFoods Europe, run by Mariel and Eamon Cotter, who found it while looking for products for their daughter’s dietary needs.
