A rigorous claim defining a product made in a completely separated environment, i.e. no dairy is used in the manufacturing area and even the air is screened. The finished product contains no detectable dairy and is acceptable for people who are allergic to dairy. Dairy-free items do not include a "may contain" label.
Lactose-free refers to a product that does not contain lactose. Plant-based goods, on the other hand, are inherently lactose-free. Lactose is a sugar that may be found in milk and other dairy products. It is also found in several processed and ready-to-eat meals. Lactose can be found in all animal milks (e.g., cow's milk, goat's milk, sheep's milk, buffalo milk) and dairy products manufactured from them (e.g., cheese, cream, yoghurt).
DAIRY FREE PRODUCT APPROVAL PROCESS
Allow us to elucidate the foundation of our esteemed Dairy-Free certification program. Given that there is no formalized accreditation specifically dedicated to dairy-free certification, our program rests upon the following pillars:
1. Producer claim: In order to attain certification, it is imperative that you substantiate your assertions by presenting evidence demonstrating that your facility diligently implements procedures to guarantee the absence of dairy in your products. To initiate the certification process, you will be required to complete our comprehensive dairy-free application form, wherein you will furnish intricate details concerning your production processes and facility management.
2. Accredited laboratory test reports: To further corroborate the veracity of your claims, we mandate that you subject your product samples to laboratory testing. However, we exclusively accept results procured from laboratories that have garnered accreditation and recognition from the esteemed International Accreditation Laboratory Council (ILAC). This stringent criterion ensures an unwavering commitment to precision and accuracy.
3. Third-party independent approval: To ensure an unbiased evaluation, ACS engages an independent third-party auditor to thoroughly review your application and scrutinize the results of your testing. With utmost fairness, we meticulously assess whether your products adhere to our rigorous Dairy-Free certification requirements, ultimately offering a recommendation for either certification approval or rejection.
It is essential to note that our Dairy-Free certification possesses a validity period of one year, necessitating reapplication upon expiration to maintain your esteemed certification. We hold our responsibility in the highest regard, which is why we conduct regular audits and inspections to verify the continual adherence of your facility to our stringent certification requisites.
Rest assured, our unwavering commitment to excellence and stringent certification protocols enables us to provide you with a distinguished Dairy-Free certification, solidifying your reputation as a purveyor of products safe for those with dairy allergies.
