Lactose Intolerance

Lactose intolerance or sensitivity is the inability to digest the natural sugar lactose that’s found primarily in dairy foods. Some people do not have enough of the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the sugar within their digestive system. Lactose sensitivity symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas and uncomfortable bloating. This food sensitivity can be difficult to diagnosis since symptoms can be attributed to a range of health issues. Reducing consumption of dairy foods due to concerns about lactose intolerance can result in lower intake of essential nutrients – in fact, milk supplies seven nutrients for which adults have lower intakes: calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin A. But did you know that being lactose intolerant does not mean that all dairy foods are off limits? And that’s good news because dairy foods help keep your bones and muscles strong.
