Lactose Intolerance

Lactose is a natural sugar found in milk and dairy products such as cheese and yogurt. After eating this sugar, a digestive enzyme called lactase helps to breakdown lactase into two simple sugars, glucose and galactose for digestion. These simple sugars are then absorbed in the small intestine and ultimately reach the blood stream where they act as nutrients. The enzyme lactase is in the lining of the small intestine known as the intestinal villi.
