Frequently Asked Questions
Normally, people who cannot digest and enjoy foods with gluten or lactose cannot eat cakes or cupcakes. People like me, cannot enjoy normal cakes, cupcakes and other desserts because I am lactose intolerant.

What is lactose intolerance?
Lactose intolerance is the inability or insufficient ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells lining the small intestine.
Not all people with lactase deficiency have digestive symptoms, but those who do may have lactose intolerance. Most people with lactose intolerance can tolerate some amount of lactose in their diet.
What is coeliac disease?
Coeliac Disease is a condition in which there is a persistently abnormal immunological reaction to dietary gluten, giving rise to tissue damage in the presence of gluten In order to follow a strict gluten free diet, a Coeliac must not eat foods that contain any form of gluten, which is found in WHEAT, BARLEY, RYE and OATS. Eating gluten causes the lining of the small intestine to become damaged thus reducing the coeliacs ability to absorb certain foods.

What is Eircode?
Eircode, Ireland’s postcode system launched in July 2015. Eircode enables people and businesses to find every address in Ireland, helping you to find life easier.
Over 35% of addresses in Ireland share their address with at least one other property, making it difficult for those delivering goods and services to accurately identify the location of an address. Eircode has been designed specifically to overcome this problem. Unlike other countries where postcodes define a cluster or group of addresses, a unique Eircode is assigned to each residential and business address.
Having an Eircode, removes the hassle and mistakes out of finding addresses in Ireland.
