Understanding the concept of dairy-free and gluten-free is essential when stocking your ice cream freezer with these products. Dairy-free refers to products that do not contain any dairy ingredients, such as milk, cream, or butter, making them suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies. Gluten-free products, on the other hand, are free from gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. This is important for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

By offering dairy-free and gluten-free options, you can cater to a wider range of customers who have specific dietary needs or preferences. It's important to educate yourself and your staff about these dietary restrictions to better assist customers and ensure a positive experience.

Exploring Diary-Free And Gluten-Free Flavour Options 

When it comes to dairy-free and gluten-free ice cream, there are plenty of delicious flavour options to explore. Instead of using traditional dairy ingredients, these products often utilise alternative bases such as coconut milk, almond milk, or soy milk. These non-dairy bases can create a creamy and satisfying texture, similar to regular ice cream.

In terms of flavours, the possibilities are endless. From classic options like chocolate and vanilla to more adventurous choices like caramel or mango, there's something for everyone. It's important to offer a variety of flavours to cater to different preferences and ensure that customers have a wide selection to choose from.

Navigating Cross-Contamination Concerns 

Cross-contamination is a significant concern when it comes to stocking dairy-free and gluten-free products. Even trace amounts of dairy or gluten can trigger allergic reactions or cause discomfort for individuals with dietary restrictions. It's important to take measures to prevent cross-contamination and ensure the safety of your customers.

Some ways to navigate cross-contamination concerns include: 

                                • Designating separate storage areas or shelves for dairy-free and gluten-free products to prevent accidental mixing.

                      • Using separate scoops or utensils for handling these products to avoid cross-contact with regular ice cream.

                      • Regularly cleaning and sanitising equipment, countertops, and utensils to eliminate any potential traces of dairy or gluten.

                      • Clearly labelling and educating your staff about the importance of avoiding cross-contamination.

By implementing these practices, you can create a safe and inclusive environment for individuals with dietary restrictions.
