Kroma is dedicated to providing healthy dairy-free products that still allow you to enjoy the delicious food you love. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a compromise, and with Kroma’s products, it won’t have to be.

What does dairy free mean? Dairy-free products and dairy-free meals are free of any ingredient that is derived from milk from a mammal. Beyond milk, this would also include things like butter, cheese, and yogurt. Learn more here about the benefits of being dairy free.
Dairy products, especially milk and cheeses, are high in both cholesterol and saturated fats. Both of these things contribute to clogged arteries and can easily lead to heart disease—the leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, one person dies from heart disease every 33 seconds in America.
In addition to being high in fats, consuming milk products has been directly linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer, especially cancers in men’s and women’s reproductive systems, because of the additional hormones found in dairy.
These negative effects have been extensively linked to prostate cancer, breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. One study showed that consuming dairy products increased a person’s chances of breast cancer by 53% and 73% for risk of ovarian cancer. Following a vegan diet created a 35% lower prostate cancer risk. Dairy consumption also increased the chances of dying from these cancers as well.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths surrounding dairy benefits. A common claim is that drinking more milk creates strong bones, while many studies have shown that there is no correlation between increased calcium intake and bone health.
Another misconception is that milk, especially cow’s milk, is the only way to add calcium to your diet. Green veggies, especially ones like broccoli, contain calcium and vitamin K (another important vitamin that contributes to bone health).
Because you can get the mineral and vitamin benefits of dairy in many other ways, the only real problem with dairy-free products is the lack of taste and creaminess that dairy provides. Kroma Wellness makes exclusively dairy-free products with ingredients that bring that rich, creamy taste — without the dairy.
The key to a good dairy-free diet is quality products. Kroma has revolutionized the wellness industry by providing healthy foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats while still satiating your palette and sweet tooth. You don’t have to settle for bland, watery foods when eliminating dairy from your diet. You can still enjoy the foods you love — like cookie butter, lattes, or a sweet breakfast — in a refined, healthy way.
A non-dairy superstar, Kroma's MCT oil-infused Superfood Creamer is the perfect replacement for dairy-laden creamers. It instantly adds that creamy taste you love to your morning coffee, tea, lattes or smoothies, while providing a subtle hint of coconut.
