What is lactose intolerance?
When a person is lactose intolerant, they don’t have enough of the lactase enzyme to properly digest lactose. The amount of lactose a person can tolerate varies. The undigested lactose passes through the small intestine to the colon. In the colon, natural bacteria ferment the lactose, producing acids and gas. This combination of events can cause the symptoms of lactose intolerance, which may include abdominal pain, bloating, excessive flatulence or diarrhoea.
Most people are born with the ability to produce the lactase enzyme because breast milk, like cow’s milk, contains lactose. The chance of developing lactose intolerance later in life is influenced by a range of factors, including genetic predisposition or medical conditions.
How does Liddells make its products lactose free?
Is lactose intolerance the same as milk allergy?
Does the nutritional value of Liddells products change when lactose is removed?
The naturally occurring sugar content in lactose free products is the same as regular dairy, though it is perceived to taste sweeter. This is because of the way our taste receptors experience the sweetness of different types of sugar carbohydrates—lactose is perceived to be less sweet than glucose and galactose.
FODMAP Friendly approved food products—what does that mean?
An important message :
However, the industry has been doing it tough. Despite severe drought and increasing operating costs across the supply chain, prices have remained unchanged for some time.
Liddells is proud to be a part of the Australian dairy industry. In recognising the value the industry brings to all Australians, we have recently increased our wholesale prices across selected Liddells products. We understand that no one likes paying more, however, we appreciate your support in helping to bring value back to the dairy industry.
