Lactose Intolerance
Lactose Intolerance develops when the body has difficulty digesting whole and skim milk and other dairy products. Lactose is a milk sugar and like most sugars, it is broken down by enzymes in the intestinal tract so it can be absorbed as an energy source. The enzyme that breaks down lactose is lactase. When the intestine does not contain lactase, Lactose Intolerance can occur.
