Dairy-free products do not contain any dairy in any form. This means no animal milk, milk powder, cream, milk protein isolates, whey, casein, or other dairy derivatives. Lactose-free products contain milk, but lactase enzymes are added to break down the lactose—a sugar found in dairy.
Does lactose contain whey?

Does all milk have whey?
