Lactose Free Milk

If people stop consuming such an important nutrition source, they would be unable to obtain all the important nutrients through a single source. This is where the milk for lactose intolerant come in. It is very beneficial for lactose intolerant people who can substitute their dairy products with products which contain low sugar contents.

  • How is it prepared

For those who are intolerant to dairy sugars, consumption of dairy products can cause stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhoea, headaches, etc. But this doesn’t mean that they should just cut out the primary source of nutrition from their diet.

Reputed brands have come up with variants in milk to solve this problem- Milk for lactose intolerant. Unlike the name suggests, is not milk free from all lactose content. It is highly impossible to drain out all the complex sugars from dairy beverages. During the manufacturing, milk undergoes certain processes which split lactose in sugars like glucose and galactose. These are simple sugars and are easier to digest. No other nutrients other than the sugars content changes and thus enables people intolerant to dairy sugars to receive their daily dose of nutrients.

  • Extended shelf life:

The shelf life of this dairy product is longer than the regular milk. It is ultra pasteurised to elongate the shelf life. It undergoes a very high temperature for a short period of time which elongates the life of the product. As the demand for these types of milk variant is very less compared to the regular ones, the product is supposed to have a longer life.

  • Taste:

The dairy product is sweeter in taste as simple sugars taste sweet on your tongue. This is because of the complex sugars been broken down into two simple sugars- glucose and galactose. Simple sugars taste sweeter compared to the complex sugars. The taste is also slightly refined.

  • Nutritional benefits:

As we mentioned earlier, many people suffer from the intolerance of these sugars, lactose-free milk can help prevent the symptoms it causes. The older you get, the lesser is the lactase production in the body. Mostly, the countries which do not consume dairy products on a regular basis face these problems. Though it doesn’t cause very serious illnesses, avoiding the consumption of products with dairy sugars is the only solution.

Generally, it is rare for babies to develop lactose intolerance. A baby’s body generates lactase which helps in the digestion of complex sugars. In babies, lactose intolerance is more common in the ones who were prematurely born. Thus, there also is milk for babies which contains a low level of sugars. This helps the mothers around the world to give the right nutrients to their babies. Body decreases the generation of lactase as the child grows, hence, rather than milk with low lactose for babies, it can be opted for kids.
