Milk Alternatives

Lactose is the main sugar in milk. The inability to break it down is due to the small intestine not producing enough lactose enzymes. This results in lactose not being absorbed by the body and remaining undigested in the gut. This can cause huge discomfort with symptoms such as bloating and diarrhoea. Goat and sheep milk also contain lactose and are also not suitable if you are lactose intolerant.
