Lactose Intolerance & Milk Allergy
An allergy to milk and milk products, which are a great source of protein and calcium, is rare
- more common is a lactose intolerance.
Some people only react adversely to cow's milk and are able to drink both sheep and goat's milk without any symptoms. In these cases, it is generally a protein called casein, that affects them, rather than the lactose. If a product is labelled as 'milk free', it should be suitable for both people who are lactose intolerant and sensitive to casein.
