First of all, let's talk about how to deal with young children and infant lactose intolerance .
First, add lactase or loctose milk powder: by supplementing exogenous lactase, on the one hand, it can alleviate the symptoms caused by lactase difference ; on the other hand, it can also give more secretion time to endogenous lactase secretion (personal feeling This concept is the same principle as injecting insulin into a diabetic patient and allowing their islet B cells to rest sufficiently to work better.
Second, the special formula without lactose: Most of the sugar in the milk powder is lactose. If the lactose in the formula is replaced by maltose, etc., these sugars can be decomposed.
So, what should we do for adult lactose intolerance?
First, you can drink milk in small quantities. Because the symptoms of lactose intolerance vary in severity, you can drink the amount of milk your body can withstand multiple times depending on your tolerance. This will not cause diarrhea on the one hand, but may also have a certain feedback effect on the body.
Second, let's talk about the benefits of probiotics .Although the probiotic products have been overheated in the past two years, it does not affect the fact that they really work. For example, the β-galactosidase activity in Lactobacillus acidophilus is high and can cause a decomposition of lactose. Therefore, drinking yogurt may be a better choice than drinking fresh milk (say, perhaps, not because the probiotics soothe the intestines are not accurate, but because the probiotics in the yogurt can enter the intestines. The soothing effect is still unclear).
Third, we can do not drink milk on an empty stomach. Many people know that diarrhea can occur when drinking milk on an empty stomach, and if you drink milk after you are full, the symptoms will be much less. This is because when milk and other foods are mixed, other foods can act as a buffer, so that the gastrointestinal tract is less stimulated, thereby alleviating the symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Finally, drink lactose-free milk. For example, the soothing lactose-free milk developed by Yili uses the patented LHT lactose hydrolysis technology. When milk is produced, lactase can be added to the milk environment of low temperature aseptic (previously high temperature sterilization) by this technology. The lactose in milk breaks down into glucose and galactose; in the process, proteins and other nutrients are not destroyed except for lactose. According to data from the China Dairy Product Industry Association, Yili Shuhua milk is 96% effective in improving the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Of course, the taste of milk will be better improved, because lactose itself has a lower sweetness, and the sweetness of glucose and galactose is increased, which makes the taste more sweet.
Therefore, people who are lactose intolerant can drink milk. The premise is to take precautionary measures against the above four points before drinking milk!
