Our dedication to crafting handcrafted drinks that meet your specific requirements, including lactose-free options, ensures that everyone can find something delicious to savor.
Understanding Dairy Allergies and Lactose Intolerance
Dairy allergies are immune responses triggered by proteins found in cow’s milk, such as casein and whey. Common symptoms include hives, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and even anaphylaxis in severe cases. Individuals with dairy allergies must avoid all dairy-based products to prevent adverse reactions.
Lactose intolerance, on the other hand, is a non-allergic digestive disorder. It occurs when the body lacks an enzyme called lactase, which is essential for breaking down lactose, the sugar found in milk and dairy products. Without sufficient lactase, individuals may experience symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and abdominal pain after consuming dairy. However, unlike dairy allergies, lactose intolerance doesn’t involve the immune system and is not life-threatening.
How Common is Lactose Intolerance?
Lactose intolerance is a common condition worldwide, affecting millions of people. It tends to be more prevalent among certain ethnic groups, with a higher incidence in Asian, African, and Hispanic populations. In the United States, it is estimated that around 30 – 40 percent of the population has some degree of lactose intolerance. While lactose intolerance is not a severe medical condition, its symptoms can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. Left unmanaged, it can lead to complications such as nutritional deficiencies, dehydration, and gastrointestinal discomfort.
The Situation of Lactose Intolerance in the US
Lactose intolerance is a widespread concern in the United States, with around 30-50 million Americans to varying degrees of intolerance. This has led to an increasing demand for dairy-free alternatives in the food and beverage industry.
