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.
