We all know milk contains lactose. But what about cheese, yoghurt and milk powder? What can you still eat when you are lactose intolerant?
Which milk products can I eat when I am lactose intolerant?
Thankfully, there are some cheeses you can still eat without worrying about stomach cramps or diarrhoea. Parmesan cheese, gorgonzola and pecorino are all lactose free.
Very sensitive to lactose? Pick products that contain no or almost no lactose. Are you less sensitive, than you can also try feta cheese for example.
Which milk products should I remove from my diet when I am lactose intolerant?
Please be careful with everything that contains milk powder. Milk powder contains a lot af lactose. These products shouldn’t be included in your diet. You can find milk powder in some cookies, cakes and pizza crusts
