Make sure the product you take for lactose intolerance passed our test and quality rating and is right for you!
Isn't your health worth it?
Can lactose-free foods -- like like lactose-free milk -- and lactase enzyme supplements really help people with lactose intolerance? They may -- but it depends on how much enzyme activity is in the supplement and how much lactose has been removed from the food.
 
ConsumerLab.com selected and tested ten different lactase supplements and three popular brands of lactose-free milk. The testing showed one lactase supplement with so little activity as to be of questionable value. But ConsumerLab.com also found many supplements that met their claims and may be helpful. The three lactose-free milks had no detectable lactose but only two provided a significant amount of vitamin D.
 
ConsumerLab.com found that an equal amount of lactase enzyme (enough to help with a high lactose meal) cost as little as 8 cents to as much as $6.79 depending on the brand of lactase supplement.
 
In this comprehensive report about lactose intolerance and how to treat lactose intolerance, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 13 lactase supplements and 3 lactose-free milks, as well as information about one other lactase supplement similar to another that was tested. You'll learn:

    • How lactase supplements and lactose-free milks compare on quality, ingredients, and cost, and which best save you money
    • The dose of lactase needed to reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance and how to properly take lactase supplements

Update:
ConsumerLab.com was notified on 11/28/11 by the maker of one of the supplements that failed to pass testing that the source of its lactase is yeast. This source of the lactase is not listed on the label (nor is the amount of lactase activity) and dietary supplements typically contain lactase derived from fungal, not yeast, sources. While the product showed no detectable enzyme activity when initially tested using the standard test for lactase activity in supplements, retesting using a method for yeast-derived lactase showed the product to be active. The report has been updated to reflect this new information.
