Lactose is the main carbohydrate in milk. Simple sugars are broken down by an enzyme in the small intestine called lactase. Some people are born without lactase enzyme or their lactase level decreases with age. For these people, eating foods high in lactose means that undigested lactose passes through the intestines and can cause symptoms such as bloating, pain, and diarrhea.
Research shows that small amounts of lactose (up to 15 grams per day) can be tolerated without symptoms. Especially if it is played during the day. A cup of cow’s milk contains about 16 grams of lactose, while a 200 gram tub of yogurt contains 10 grams and 40 grams of cheddar cheese contains less than 1 gram.
