Gluten-Free Dry Milk Replacements:

-If you don’t require a lactose-free substitute, you can use powdered baby formula or buttermilk powdered milk.

-If you’re lactose-intolerant, use Vance’s DariFree powder in plain powder, a perfect substitute for regular dry milk. Other lactose-free substitutes include almond meal, Ensure (which is GF), Coffee Mate (which is also GF), dry rice milk powder, dry soy milk powder, a variety of nut flours, and last—but certainly not least—dried coconut milk (yum!).

-If you’re worried that dry milk may contain gluten, you can set your mind at ease. You can find plenty of brands of gluten-free dry milk, such as NIDO by Nestle or Carnation. You can call up the companies for more information regarding their facilities.

-The road to becoming a great GF cook is one of experimentation. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Try GF bread recipes without any milk or powdered milk at all and see how it comes out. Sample different nut flours as substitutes and see what works best. Trial and error is how some of the best GF recipes were developed!

Hope you find this helpful in your GF baking!
