Veggemo is dairy and lactose free, cholesterol free, gluten free, soy free, nut free, non-GMO and vegan friendly. It’s perfect for kids with food allergies or those who are lactose intolerant.

Tune in to learn more about Veggemo and how you can incorporate into various drinks and meals the whole family will love.
