I'm lactose intolerant. I didn't find out until I was in College, and did a little research on it. Surprisingly, 70% of the population of the planet is lactose intolerant, to some degree. I don't have it that bad, as I can drink milk, and eat ice cream, cheese, sour cream, cook with cream or half-and-half, etc. What I have to watch out for is processed foods, such as Cheetos (my favorite snack chip :( ), Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff, or anything that lists "whey" in the ingredients. I've found that most of the lactose is in the whey. Many processed foods have whey in it, which is one of the reasons why I usually cook from scratch.

OUCH! Middie, how do you handle that? I'd go nuts having to leave out some of my favorite ingredients.

If I'm not mistaken, Lactose Intolerance and Dairy alleries are two separate things. Lactose Intolerance stems from the body not producing Lactase, the enzyme that lets you digest Lactose, the sugar in milk. Instead of being digested, the lactose ferments, results in gas buildup, pressure, bloating, diarrhea, etc. A Dairy allergy is an allergic reaction resulting in itchy skin, swelling, and in extreme cases, anaphalactic (sp?) shock.

Symptoms for lactose intolerance are easily alleviated by taking Lactaid prior to ingesting dairy foods. Symptons for a Dairy allergy are relieved by an antihistamine shot.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please.

i am mildly lactose intolerant; i get such an upset stomach with cottage cheese and a few other things like that. but i keep eating cheese and milk so i can get my calcium in, plus i love cheese and milk. i have found that yogurt w/ live and active cultures helps me though, if i have it after a glass of milk.

A glass of milk acts like a laxative. I know, I know. TMI!

My boyfriend and I are both lactose intolerant.

I can eat most things with milk as long as I take Lactaid with them - I could not live without ice cream!

As for milk - we drink Sweet Acidophilis - it contains no lactose and tastes exactly like milk, unlike some other lactose-free milks out there.

I cook for someone who is dairy-allergic. Can be quite a challenge!

soy milk (i know, i know, it's soy juice. resisting obvious joke here) isn't bad if you get the vanilla or chocolate flavored ones. the plain is pretty rude.
