  1. what do i do when recepi calls for milk solids?

  2. Milk solids are powdered milk. There are a variety of non dairy powdered milks that you can use. There is Dari Free that is made from potatoes, and Better Than Milk is made from rice. The latter, Better Than Milk can be purchased from Amazon.

  3. I thought this might be but I wasn't sure, thank you for your help. I'm just starting gluten free and I ran into your mother at the commissary and she turned me onto your site. i figured anyone who has children that like what you're baking I should check it out. thanks again. yvonne
