Lactose is a carbohydrate (sugar) that is naturally present in foods such as milk.
In order to digest this compound, our body secretes lactase, an enzyme that breaks lactose down into 2 separate sugars: glucose and galactose.
Nonetheless, certain people do not naturally secrete the necessary amount of lactase to complete this process and therefore, cannot adequately digest lactose, which can lead to pain and discomfort.
Eliminating lactose from any food makes digestion much easier for those people, while at the same time, their bodies are still able to fully absorb all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals found in this type of food, which is beneficial in a great number of ways.
For these very reasons, Millán Vicente’s lactose-free cheeses are perfect for everyone, as they are easier to digest while they still retain all of the natural vitamins and nutrients found in cheese, not to mention its flavour.
