Get The Scoop On Lactose Intolerance

Lactose intolerance can be confused with lactose allergies.

Whatever your ailment you can still enjoy dairy products. There are many brands of lactose-free dairy products and lactose digestive aids.

Many people who are lactose intolerant (or malabsorptive) can eat yogurt and have no gastrointestinal issues because of the active live cultures, like lactobacillus bulgaricus.

Hard cheeses like parmesan, Swiss, cheddar and colby have smaller amounts of milk sugar and great quantities of milk solids which make them easier on the digestive system.

Lactose intolerance has several causes. In rare cases, it is caused by a rare-autosomal recessive trait, in which the body cannot create the enzyme lactose at all. Primary lactase deficiency tends to occur in adults, in which they lack the lactose persistence gene. Just as it sounds, the body loses its ability to produce the enzyme lactase over time.
However, as humans “domesticated” dairy animals and continued to consume dairy products, the gene for lactose persistence has prevailed for survival. In many cultures, dairy products from various mammals, such as cows, sheep and goats, can feed more individuals than the meat of the animal alone.
