We’ve been drinking milk since we were kids and that’s why most of us absolutely love it. But a lot of us are allergic to milk and are basically lactose intolerant (lactose intolerance is when the body is incapable to digest an enzyme called lactase that’s present in dairy products). In fact, 65 % of the world finds it hard to digest dairy products and people who’ve eliminated lactose from their diet are found having better digestion and better energy according to www.naturespath.com. If you’re lactose intolerant or are planning to switch to lactose-free products, here are a few things you can consider using instead.

1. Soy Milk

Since it is made from soybeans, soy milk is rich in omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin B, and magnesium.

2. Almond Milk

Made with almonds, this milk has no lactose. It contains vitamin E, vitamin D, calcium and protein and is also low in calories.

3. Lactose-Free Milk

Dairy manufacturers now have been able to fashion lactose-free milk chemically while retaining calcium and vitamin D making digestion easier.

4. Pureed Silken Tofu

This is a great substitute for cream. Silken tofu also has a lot of health benefits because it contains iron and calcium and is low in calories.

5. Vegetable Oil Instead Of Butter

Vegetable oil is a great substitute for butter as it doesn’t have any lactose. That makes it easier to digest too.

6. Soy Milk Ice Cream

Who said you need to give up ice cream just because you wanna quit dairy? Get yourself some ice cream that’s made with soy milk. It’s easily available and tastes pretty good too!
Sometimes dairy makes it hard for the body to digest it and that could lead to a lot of discomforts and digestive disorders. This is why we need to make a healthy switch soon!
