Lactose Intolerance

Lactose Intolerance

Lactose is a sugar that occurs naturally in all animal milks (including cows, goat and sheep). Lactose intolerant people have low levels of lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose. Most people who are lactase-deficient however, still produce a small amount of this enzyme and do not need to remove lactose completely from their diet.
