Lactose Intolerance Products

Dairy foods like milk and cheese are packed with calcium, nutrients, and vitamins, but for people with lactose intolerance, dairy can be a source of gas, bloating, and diarrhea. (See antidiarrheals and antiflatulence products.) The products below may help people who can't digest lactose still enjoy dairy products. Also see calcium supplements and multivitamins.
