Living Lactose Free
Living lactose free has plenty of benefits, and it’s definitely not just for those with a lactose intolerance. So this is a great time to give it a try.
What is lactose and how could it be affecting me, you ask?
Lactose is a sugar found in dairy milk that is broken down in the small intestine. Some people can have trouble digesting this form of sugar, and when that becomes extreme, it can be classed as ‘lactose intolerance’. Intolerance can cause varying degrees of troublesome symptoms like bloating, abdominal pain, and other digestive issues.
Unfortunately, many sufferers of lactose intolerance are advised to avoid yummy foods that they once loved, like yoghurt. A life without delicious yoghurt? We know, that’s going to be hard to swallow. That’s why we’ve introduced our tummy-friendly Lactose Free range so you can put yoghurt goodness back into your life.
There are heaps of benefits for everyone to living lactose free. One large benefit is that lactose free foods allows us to replace conventional milk products without having to miss out on the calcium and other nutritional elements found in milk.
Did you know that reducing lactose in your diet can actually improve your body’s absorption of nutrients from other foods? Switching to lactose free products can improve digestion, and it can also help in the long-run by preventing the lactose accumulation that causes upset tummies.
Avoiding dairy altogether can lead to deficiencies in calcium and vitamin D. Lactose free milk is rich in minerals and vitamins, like calcium, protein, vitamin D and potassium, much the same as conventional milk, and it contains almost no fat. Bonus!
Lactose intolerance isn’t the end of the world, especially with so many lactose free options available. Learn what makes your body feel good, and choose Lactose Freedom if it works for you.
