Milkaid® allows you enjoy the goodness of milk and dairy foods without suffering from the distress of wind, bloatedness, stomach cramps and diarrhoea. Being lactose intolerant used to mean giving up milk, dairy foods and the important nutrients, minerals and vitamins they provide. Milk contains vitamins A, B1, B12 & D and provides a rich source of calcium which is important to young growing bones and teeth – it can also help prevent osteoporosis in older people. Lactose can also be found in various other foods and a list of those foods can be found here – you may be surprised.
Milkaid® Drops contain lactase enzyme, a safe natural enzyme that is usually found in the digestive system. It works by breaking down the complex milk sugar lactose, into two more easily digestible sugars – glucose and galactose. You can now enjoy milk and dairy foods again, without upset. Simply add three drops of Milkaid® lactase enzyme to a pint of milk, gently shake, refrigerate for 24 hours and it is ready to use in cooking, beverages and cereals, hot or cold. Three drops will reduce the lactose by 70% which suits the large majority of people. We suggest you start by using six drops, giving 90% reduction and reduce each ‘mix’ until you find a level which suits you. We recommend that younger children start with 10 drops per pint giving 100% reduction – again reducing by one drop at a time.
Milkaid® Tablets contain lactase enzyme and are raspberry flavoured chewable tablets. Each tablet contains lactase 3000 ALU and is free from artificial flavours, gluten, yeast or lactose. Lactase enzyme improves lactose digestion in individuals who have difficulty digesting lactose. Milkaid® Tablets are designed to work in the acid environment of the stomach and are convenient when eating out. Chew 1-2 tablets immediately before consuming any food containing lactose. You can adjust the number of tablets you take to suit your own requirements, but you should take no more than six tablets with any one meal.
