What is Lactose Intolerance?

Lactose Intolerance affects more than 65% of the human population with more than 50 million people claiming some form of lactose intolerance in the United States. An intolerance to lactose is characterized by the inability to digest the lactose sugar which is found in milk and dairy products resulting in a range of stomach pains or discomfort.

While most people with a lactose intolerance may choose to opt for non-dairy options on the shelf, there are real dairy options out there that allow you to enjoy all the benefits of real dairy products without the discomfort!

Do you actually know what ingredients are in all those other dairy imitators and alternatives? The answers may surprise you with a long list of additives and preservatives which you often can’t even pronounce let along begin to understand. These alternatives and imitators rely on these added ingredients and synthetic nutrients to compete with milk’s package of nutrition, au natural. Only real dairy products made with cow’s milk are a good source of all 9 essential nutrients including calcium, potassium and vitamin D.

Our Lactose Free Milk is Different

Because our lactose free milk is real cow’s milk, it has only 3 simple ingredients; milk, vitamin D and a lactose enzyme. The lactose enzyme is simply a protein that is added that helps the body to break down the lactose in milk. This is an enzyme that people without an intolerance possess naturally.

So next time you’re in your local grocer, give Kreider Farms Lactose Free Milk available in HVD and 2% and Lactose Free Ice Cream available in vanilla and chocolate a try! It’s time to stop depriving yourself of the real thing and start living your best life, lactose free!
