Recent studies on lactose intolerance

Lactose intolerance occurs when the enzyme lactase available in the gut isn’t efficient enough to digest lactose. This leads to undigested lactose passing into the large intestine where it can be fermented by the bacteria in the colon causing unpleasant symptoms. Research has consistently shown that most people with lactose intolerance can better tolerate yogurt compared to standard/unfermented milks, so nutrientdense yogurt with its high quality protein can still be included in the diet. There appear to be a number of possible reasons for this, including the activity of live bacteria in the yogurt.
