If you can’t stomach lactose for whatever reason, you’re in luck. All of Nagev food is lactose free and there are plenty of lactose free options for our drinks.
What is lactose? (Science y’all.)
Lactose is a natural sugar found in dairy foods like milk, yogurt, cream, ice cream, and cheese. It gets digested in the small intestine by an enzyme called lactase.
Lactose intolerance happens when the body doesn’t produce enough lactase to digest it, this can develop at any age. Symptoms vary from mild to severe gut problems, and some people may still be able to handle small amounts of dairy foods. Hard dairy cheeses like parmesan contain very little lactose, compared to soft fresh cheese like mozzarella. If you love your dairy but can’t handle lactose we have a lactose dairy milk just for you.
Milk allergies are different to intolerances and are most common in children.
We have a few different milk [link to alternative milk page] options so whatever your reason for not wanting lactose, we’ve got you covered.
If you think you have an intolerance or allergy to any food, we suggest going to see a qualified health professional such as a Dietitian for further advice. And then you can get back to the important things in life like getting a mouth full of Nagev goodness!
