Milk alternatives, Part 2: Lactose-Free Milk

Lactose-Free Milk

Many American’s suffer from lactose intolerance.  The risk of suffering from this ailment increases with your age.  The simple pleasure of cheese, milk, and ice cream can make the sufferer quite ill in little no time after consumption.  I could not imagine being unable to enjoy these treats.  You could take lactase pills or lactose-free dairy products.  One example is Fairlife Milk which I wrote about last week.  Another example is Lactaid or the look-alikes in your grocery store.  


Milk alternatives, Part 1: Fairlife Ultra-Filtered Milk

Fairlife Milk: The Better Milk

If you visit the Fairlife milk website, you can easily find the claims that it is nutrient-rich milk made with a patented cold-filtration process that removes the lactose and increases the protein content.  The claim that their filtration process was inspired by the same process that removes impurities from water.  The process reportedly started with dairy from family-owned dairy farms that is processed by soft filters that concentrate and removed parts to leave the milk goodness that had less lactose and more calcium and protein.
