In brief: Milk products

Lactose is the naturally occurring sugar in milk.
So all milk products (including cheese, butter, ice cream and yogurt) contain lactose. Many baked products use milk as an ingredient, so these too have lactose in addition many medicines contain lactose as well used as a "filler". Read labels looking for milk as an ingredient.
