Lactose - facts and myphs

A habit towards the reduction or elimination of dietary dairy product intake in children and adolescents may have adverse impact on normal growth because of inadequate milk intake. As lactose provides energy, proteins, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and calcium the eliminated food should at least be replaced with other similar in calorie, protein, mineral, and vitamin content. Knowing wich products have less lactose may help to reduce unpleasant symptoms for those who experience certain intolerance. For example, low content lactose foods (0-2g per 100g) are butter, mozarella and cheddar cheese in contrast to cream cheese, icecream and powder milk (> 5 g). The closest nutritional lactose substitute is soy beverage, followed by rice and almond milk. Check the details by the link!
