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!

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.
