A 36-year-old female asked:
What is the difference between lactose enzyme and lactase in milk?

Nothing : Lactase is the common name for the lactose enzyme. Lactase is sometimes added to commercial mild preparations so lactase deficient (lactose intolerant) people can enjoy the product without the gas and cramping they would otherwise experience.
