How do we remove the lactose from Lactofree?

First, we carefully filter the milk to naturally remove the lactose. This process ensures that we remove around half of the lactose while still keeping all the nutrients and great taste. In order to break down the last of the lactose, we then add lactase to the milk. Lactase is the enzyme that your body has an insufficient amount of, if you are lactose intolerant.

Some lactose free products are produced by only adding lactase to milk, which often means higher levels of sugar than regular dairy.
