There are so many different dietary requirements these days. Some are for personal choice. Others are medical. If you are baking for other people with dietary restrictions, it’s best to ask them for their requirements for ingredients and preparation. Here are a few words to keep an eye out for on the package.
Vegan: By definition, vegan products are dairy-free.
Paleo: Products labeled paleo should be both gluten-free and dairy-free.
Keto: keto-friendly offers no information on either gluten or dairy. You will need to read the ingredients.
‘May contain traces’ or ‘Made in a factory that also produces‘ (gluten, dairy, milk, soy, tree nuts, or any other items): Some people with dietary restrictions can eat these, while others cannot. Best to ask if the cookies you are making are not for you.
Gluten-free: Please note that some of the recipes contain oats. While not gluten, many people who are gluten-free avoid eating oats.
