Carob Mylk Chocolate Bar

dairy free gluten free low salicylate vegan

dairy free egg free low amine low salicylate

Mylk Custard Tarts

This recipe is a special treat for anyone who loves custard but can't stomach dairy or egg (as this recipe is free of both). Dairy and egg intolerances are both very common in people with eczema so this recipe was created to cater for people with skin disorders but of course anyone can try it. The recipe is also classed as low salicylate and low amine, so it's ideal for people with multiple chemical sensitivities, eczema, TSW, psoriasis and other types of skin inflammation that may require a low chemical (low salicylate) diet.
