When I was younger I had a lot of troubles with milk products. Still to this day At times they seem to upset my stomach. I have been thinking about removing them from my diet. Is there any products that are lactose free, such as sour cream, ice cream, butter, ect. I have been using soy milk and I have been seeing a difference.
Thanks

Hi, 

You can add or replace your milk with lactose-free cow's milk. Milk companies treat these milks with lactase so that the milk sugar is completely broken down. Nutritionally, lactose-free cow's milk is comparable to regular cow’s milk.Another option is to buy lactose-free nondairy milk options, such as almond, hemp, multigrain, oat, or rice.

I would suggest that you talk to your doctor about your symptoms.  You need to find out if you have lactose intolerance or if there is another cause for your symptoms.  If you are lactose intolerant, you can probably still include some dairy products in your diet.  Lactose is the natural sugar found in milk.  People with lactose intolerance do not have enough lactase, an enzyme that digests the lactose.  Many people with lactose intolerance are able to enjoy milk in small amounts.  They just have to experiment to see how much they can tolerate without experiencing symptoms.  Additionally, yogurt and cheese are often tolerated better than milk.  Cheese has most of the lactose removed and yogurt contains cultures that help to digest the lactose.  Individuals with lactose intolerance can also use lactose-free products such as lactose-free milk or take lactose pills when they consume dairy foods to help with lactose digestion.  Please reach out to your local Hy-Vee dietitian for more ideas.
