Lactose Intolerance is a deficiency of the lactase enzyme needed to digest lactose (milk sugar). Those with Lactose Intolerance may be able to digest small amounts of dairy products without assistance, but the symptoms will begin to reveal themselves with higher levels of dairy, such as the levels required on Acc(u)Life Milk Days.
- Use lactase enzyme supplements on Milk Days. Lactase enzymes are sold over the counter and are typically located near the antacids. Follow the instructions on the packaging. Should you continue to experience symptoms, double the dosage of enzyme.
- Switch to lactose free whole milk. WHOLE milk is in the RED container.
- You may use a combination of the above, i.e., use lactose free milk at home and use lactase enzyme supplements with yogurt and/or when you use regular milk outside of the home.
- Try one of our Plant-Based options. Visit Plant-based Milk & Yogurt Options Guide for more information.
