ARE YOU LACTOSEINTOLERANT?
Lactose intolerance is the inability to break down lactose, a natural sugar in dairy products. It’s caused by a deficiency in the lactase enzyme and shows up as diarrhoea, excess gas and bloating. Sheeba says that the condition is more common in Asians than in Europeans because dairy products are still relatively new foods to us.
Ardyce recommends drinking lactose-free milk or taking a lactase enzyme supplement when consuming dairy products, so you don’t suffer the symptoms.
