Eating a Healthy Diet With Lactose Intolerance

Great info since I have a DIL who is lactose intolerant.
Tysm for the info, although most of it I've read numerous times in past years. I am truly lactose intolerant and have been for MANY years, especially when I was expecting my twins--both of whom are also now lactose intolerant.
Perhaps SP nutrition analyzers should take this into account when they constantly tell me that I have not consumed enough Ca for the day when they see that I ALWAYS substitute almond, coconut or cashew for regular milk, etc. What's the point of doing a profile if the meal plan constantly includes foods/items that your system doesn't tolerate?
Again, thank you for the excellent article.
Great to know info! Thanks for sharing this one!!!!
Good need-to-know information!
I hope you crush all your goals today!
I have a dairy allergy & manage fine without it altho there are now lots of alternate products that wasn't always the case. I appreciate especially the coconut options. Calcium is tricky and most people need more magnesium so I take the two together then get my potassium in food. Taking minerals later in the day is best; vitamins esp the Bs in the morning so they don't keep you awake. The dairy industry has many people who need jobs. That's why you can't order a sandwich or burger anymore w/out having to say, pls hold the cheese. Pizza & tacos are cheap & have lots of cheese. I don't think it's only sugar that has made us fat; it's cheese & bacon on everything us desserts are typically cheesecake or something served w/ ice cream when you eat out. Dairy is invasive & unnecessary if not downright unhealthy. If 1 in every 4 or 5 people can't eat a certain food maybe our body doesn't recognise that substance as nourishment? Kind of like those pet food ads where the owners recognize they've been feeding their dogs filler & not meat. We are not calves.
Thank you for the information!
I would never try to drink 1 cup of milk in one serving. I can probably deal with 1/3 cup OK. An advantage of lactose intolerance is that I am happy with small (several TBS) servings of ice cream, custard, yogurt, cheesecake, etc. It really takes away the desire to have large servings of some good treats.
I am a dairywoman and we have isolated the "A" gene in milk that is giving you trouble. We have bred our cattle to produce mass quantities of milk, however we bred into them the same gene we bred into horses that tend to founder and are classified as "easy keepers". Because everything in the industrial world is closely bred (line bred) most milk has the A1 gene that causes most of this. It ran through the Jersey herds and really hurt their breeding. Now, you can get A2 milk that has consciously cut this from the herd and kept only cattle that have not been adulterated. Look for A2 milk.
I am not LI but it was a great article..
Nice article and informative. Didn't realize all the gradations.
