Kara Dairy Free
Kara Dairy Free is a beautiful and nourishing coconut drink that has become immensely popular on the veggie/vegan circuits and beyond, as more and more people seek alternatives to dairy product. Kara Dairy Free is very low in fat (only 2%) and rich in calcium, as well as being cholestorol free, and is a fantastic healthy option for people of all dietary persuasions. Interestingly the Coconut is not a nut but is actually a fruit, making Kara Dairy Free a nut free product and therefore suitable for people with nut allergies, which is amazing. As with many vegan businesses, there is a very nice team behind KDF and we wish them all the best and welcome them on board as a growing part of the vegan community especially. www.karadairyfree.com
