Folks who are lactose intolerant cannot digest lactase which is a natural sugar in milk. Bloating and other discomfort happens when the small intestine doesn’t make enough lactase, a natural enzyme, to break down that sugar. There are lactase supplements people can take with dairy foods – and there are some other ways – according to St. Louis Dairy Council nutrition educator Ellen Wheeler – to help you get your dairy.
