Where dairy content is not declared on the label in an allergy statement or in the ingredients list the following tests will be applied to coconut milk drinks:
List of dairy allergen tests and compliance requirements

|Dairy allergen (ALLEGEND)||Beta-lactoglobulin||< 0.1 ppm|
|Casein (expressed as skim milk powder)||< 1.0 ppm|
|Total milk (expressed as a non-fat dried milk)||< 2.5 ppm|
