Is Lactose Free Milk Good For You
Found in milk. Lactose is a large sugar molecule that is made up of two smaller sugar molecules, glucose and galactose. In order for lactose to be absorbed from the intestine and into the body, it must first be split into glucose and galactose. The glucose and galactose are then absorbed by the cells lining the small intestine. The enzyme that splits lactose into glucose ...Read more
Nothing: Lactose-free milk is just regular cow's milk with lactase-enzyme added to convert lactose sugar molecules to simpler sugars such as glucose and galactose, which can be absorbed without further enzymatic action in the intestine.

Can i drink lactose free milk like almond milk but im not lactose tolerant is it still fine to drink lactose free milk?

Recent studies suggest organics offer little if any benefit over normally obtained food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In addition, you could try skim milk or almond milk. Finally, calcium supplements such as Tums are available. Good luck. ...Read more
Several years ago, i stopped being able to digest dairy, and thought i became lactose intollerant. However, i can't digest loctose-free milk, or eggs.
Interesting: Homo sapiens is the only mammal that drinks the milk of another species as a staple. It has always puzzled me and i think that there may be a genetic factor that prevents your dairy intake. It is therefore not necessarily abnormal. Mother nature has spoken! I am surprised about eggs but dr esselstyn (prevention and reversal of cardioascular disease with a plant based diet" forbids eggs. ...Read more
