Easy ways to do your shopping completely lactose free

Lactose intolerance is a condition in which the human body doesn’t have special enzyme – lactase – essential to digest lactose. If your body has no lactase, there is bloating, diarrhea, abdominal cramps after consumption of milk and dairy products. Lactase deficiency may be complete and partial. In the complete absence of the enzyme, milk and dairy products should be completely excluded from the diet. In partial lactose people can’t drink whole milk and cream. In this case, a person may have two options – either to replace basic milk with lactose free milk or consume other dairy products in light quantities, which are abundant in any store: yogurt, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese.

Therefore, if you are lactose intolerant, do not assume that you will have nothing to buy the next time you go shopping! Even with lactose intolerance, you can refill the calcium in your body. You can increase the number of products containing calcium by using such products as: lactose free milk and cheese, yogurt, mineral water enriched with calcium, green vegetables (broccoli, spinach), basil, parsley, watercress, enriched juices and soy drinks.

Do not keep out of dairy products completely. Try to take calcium-rich foods, such as lactose free milk, but in small doses (less than a cup) and drink it while eating. Lactose free milk is common natural milk, only without lactose. This beverage has lactose divided to glucose and galactose, which has a positive effect on the digestibility of the product. In this case, the milk retains its flavor and all useful properties. Moreover, it remains perfectly safe for health. Lactose free milk contains vital nutrients, vitamins, proteins that have a beneficial effect on the human body.

Typically, cheese and yogurt in small quantities are quite easily tolerated by people with lactose intolerance as well. By the way, any cheese product is considered to be lactose-free, because cheese has less lactose than milk. It will bring no harm to health to those who are lactose intolerant. It is also possible to try buying cottage cheese without lactose, or other sources of calcium, such as soybean milk, almond, broccoli and other green vegetables, fish, etc.

Hope these simple precautions and tips will help people with lactase intolerance to do shopping completely lactose free. There is a pretty big difference for a person with an intolerance and a person with a dairy allergy! Although there are lactose-free products that are made for people with lactose intolerance, these are usually not suitable for people who have milk allergies and you should not consume them.

Do not deprive yourself fully of milk and dairy products – this will help avoid the appearance of unpleasant symptoms.

  1. I never knew the difference between the two so glad you pointed it out.

  2. I didn’t realise there were so many lactose free products available. I’m not lactose intolerant but I do question how important it is to have dairy – everything I read tells me adults do not need milk.

  3. I’m not actually lactose intolerant, but I have a close friend who is, so I’m going to show her this post! Thank you for the information! x
