Lactose-Free Cooking

March 2023

Does going without cheese seem unthinkable? Good news! We have some tips on how you can eat cheese even if you or a loved one is lactose intolerant.

What is lactose?

Lactose is a sugar naturally found in milk. This sugar is broken down in the digestive system by lactase, an enzyme found in the bodies of mammals and humans. Some people produce little or no lactase and are lactose intolerant. The intensity of this intolerance can vary from one individual to another, and it creates, among other things, digestive discomfort.

Lactose-free cooking

Lactose-free does not mean milk-free! This means that you don’t have to turn to plant-based cheeses. An increasing number of lactose-free dairy products are now available in grocery stores. Moreover, the lactose removal process requires no additives, so the products remain just as nutritious.

Lactose-free cheeses are just as tasty as traditional cheeses. You must find the type of cheese you prefer or best suited to your favourite recipe.
