There’s a good chance you know of someone in your life that is lactose intolerent.
But what exactly IS lactose and a lactose intolerance?
Simply put, lactose is a natural sugar found in milk and milk products and a lactose intolerance is the result of your body’s inability to breakdown and absorb lactose.
The good news is the longer a cheese is aged, the less lactose it contains. So, even if you’re sensitive to dairy products as a result of lactose intolerance, that doesn’t mean you have to avoid cheese.
At aboutlife we have a range of delicious ‘Low Lactose’ cheeses made by artisan cheese makers in Northern Italy. They are suitable for people who are lactose intolerant as well as those with sensitivities to lactose.
Apart from our traditional Italian parmagiano reggiano and grana padano why not choose one of the following cheeses from our artisan cheese counter the next time you’re in-store?
A flavourful Italian mountain cheese with a full strong flavour and firm texture.
Made from the milk of cow’s in the Pusteria Valley of Italy. A soft textured cheese with a full flavour and a dash of sweetness.
Stelvio DOP Stilfser
A wonderfully aromatic flavour with soft, smooth consistency.
All these cheeses contain less than 0.1 grams of lactose. Which means that if you’ve got a lactose intolerence you may just be able to enjoy cheese again! The good thing is you don’t have to be lactose intolerant to enjoy these cheeses too.
Cheese to your Health!
