Lactose-free milk - Definition


Definition


Lactose is a carbohydrate present in milk and dairy products. For some newborns and infants it is impossible, or very difficult, to digest lactose, and they develop an intolerance manifested by bloating, colic-type abdominal cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea which can cause weight loss, dehydration, and severe malnutrition. Lactose-free milk enables proper nutrition for lactose intolerant children and is also used to rehydrate a child with severe diarrhea. The lactose is either removed from the milk, while maintaining its nutritional qualities and taste, or it is supplemented with lactase that enables the digestion of lactose.
