Loving Dairy Again: Lactose Intolerance Tips

( - While lactose intolerance is a very individual condition, many people with lactose intolerance can still consume dairy foods in varying amounts or forms.

The tips below may help your patients and clients manage their lactose intolerance and still enjoy dairy, along with its unique nutrient package.

  • Try It. Opt for lactose-free milk and milk products. They are real milk products, just without the lactose. They taste great and provide the same nutrients as regular dairy foods.
  • Stir It. Mix milk with other foods, such as soups and cereal; blend with fruit or drink milk with meals. Solid foods help slow digestion and allow the body more time to digest lactose.
  • Slice It. Top sandwiches or crackers with natural cheeses such as Cheddar, Colby, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella and Swiss. These cheeses contain small amounts of lactose, so they are great options to try.
  • Shred It. Shred your favorite natural cheese onto veggies, pastas and salads. It's an easy way to get dairy that contains minimal amounts of lactose.
  • Spoon It. Enjoy yogurt, which is easy to digest. The live and active cultures in yogurt help to digest lactose.
