Lactose intolerance, also recognised as lactase deficiency, is the commonest of all allergic conditions whereby the body is unable to break down or metabolise the lactose variant of sugar in an effective way.

The lactose enzyme is mainly found in abundance in milk and dairy products.

Understanding the deficiency

Lactose intolerance occurs when the small intestine produces insufficient quantities of lactase. Due to this, the enzyme reaches the large intestine and gets fermented.Common signs of lactose intolerance include digestive issues like diarrhea, bloating, cramps and nausea that peak right after consumption of milk or dairy products.

There are usually three common types of lactose intolerance mainly bifurcated on the basis of production levels of the enzyme in the human body.

Working around lactose intolerance

According to the Aga Khan University Hospital, consumption of lactose-free milk and diary products with some dietary modifications may decrease discomfort caused by the disorder.
To counter the affects of lactase deficiency, DayFresh has introduced a specialised milk variant to the Pakistani market.
Additionally, discomfort can be controlled by consuming non-dairy foods and drinks with a high amount of calcium, such as almonds, tuna and salmon fish, calcium-fortified juices and drinks.

DayFresh launches lactose-free milk

Dayfresh lactose-free milk is processed at a state-of-the-art dairy farm in Dhabeji (district Sujawal), Sindh with premium breed Australian cows. It consists of all major nutrients that regular milk carries.

A lactose intolerant person who has not been consuming milk and consequently has not been getting nutrition from milk now has the option to now regularly consume milk with this new product.

Dayfresh lactose-free milk comes in a storage-friendly one-liter packaging and is the first Pakistani brand to have launched a product of its kind.

Dayfresh, known for providing the highest quality of dairy solutions, has introduced its Lactose Free Milk. People with lactose intolerance don’t make enough of the enzyme lactase, which is found in your digestive tract. The enzyme's job is to break down milk sugar (lactose) into its components -- galactose and glucose -- so they can be absorbed. A person becomes lactose intolerant when his or her small intestine stop making enough of the enzyme lactase to digest and break down lactose into glucose and galactase.

Dayfresh Lactose Free Milk is a solution for those who are lactose intolerant but want to enjoy amazing dairy products, such as ice creams, coffee and milkshakes.

Dayfresh Lactose Free Milk is 100% sourced from Australian cow's milk. The addition of the Lactase enzyme helps break down lactose into glucose and galactose.

With Dayfresh Lactose free milk, new avenues are opened for the lactose intolerant while providing the nourishment they need. In South-East Asia, more than 90 per cent of people are thought to be lactose intolerant, compared with between 2 and 20 per cent of those of northern European descent.

Say Yes to Milk Again with Dayfresh Lactose Free Milk!

With Dayfresh introducing its Lactose Free milk, here’s what you need to know about Lactose intolerance.
Lactose intolerance: What you need to know
People with lactose intolerance cannot metabolize lactose properly, because their digestive system produces too little of an enzyme known as lactase.
Lactose is a sugar found only in milk, but it is also present in dairy products and food items made with milk derivatives.
A lactose intolerance is different from a milk allergy. In a milk allergy, the body reacts to milk proteins, not milk sugar.
A person with a severe lactose intolerance may have to avoid not only milk and milk products, such as ice cream, but other processed foods containing milk powder, whey, and so on.
Symptoms
A person with lactose intolerance will experience symptoms after consuming milk or a dairy product that contains lactose.
Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to a severe reaction, depending on how much lactase the person produces, and how much dairy produce they consume.
Symptoms include:

  • flatulence
  • bloating
  • abdominal pain
  • nausea
  • diarrhea
