What Is Lactose?
Lactose is a kind of disaccharide, which is composed of glucose and galactose. It tastes slightly sweet. Lactose is a carbohydrate unique to human and mammalian milk, with a molecular formula of C12H22011. In the growth and development of infants and young children, lactose not only provides energy, but also participates in the development of the brain. It is obtained by heating or adding lime milk to whey in milk (containing about 5% lactose), removing protein, concentrating, cooling, crystallizing and drying. The yield is about 60%~70%. Lactose, with a sweetness of about 70% of sucrose, in addition to providing energy to the human body, is not digested and absorbed in the human stomach and can go directly to the intestines. In the human intestine, lactose is easily decomposed into glucose and galactose by lactase for absorption.

Benefits of Lactose
Lactose is a sugar that is fermented into lactic acid, and it has some important uses in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Here are some of the benefits of lactose and related examples:

Applications in the food industry:
Enhancing taste: Lactose is often used as an additive in food processing to enhance taste. For example, when making ice cream, lactose helps to provide a smooth mouthfeel.
Preventing sucrose crystallization: In candy and chocolate manufacturing, lactose can prevent sucrose from crystallizing, maintaining the taste and texture of the product.

Applications in the pharmaceutical industry:
Pharmaceutical ingredients: Lactose is often used as a filler in tablets and capsules to make it easier to take medications. For example, some medications need to be supplied in a solid form, and lactose can provide this convenience.
Slow-release efficacy: In some medications, lactose is used as an excipient to help the drug release slowly, thereby prolonging the duration of efficacy.

What Will Lactose Do to Your Body?
Lactose is a sugar molecule found in dairy products, such as milk and cheese. Some people lack the enzyme that breaks down lactose, a condition called lactose intolerance. If you are lactose intolerant, consuming lactose can cause uncomfortable symptoms, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and upset stomach. This can affect your daily life, such as not being able to enjoy ice cream, milkshakes, or other dairy products.

Which Foods Contain Lactose?
Milk: Milk is the most common dairy product and contains a high amount of lactose.
Cheese: Almost all types of cheese contain lactose, especially soft cheese.
Yogurt: Yogurt also contains lactose.
Ice cream: Ice cream contains a lot of lactose.
Butter: Butter also contains lactose, although not as much as other dairy products.
Cream: Cream also contains lactose.
Whey protein: Some protein supplements or nutritional supplements may contain whey protein, which is also a type of dairy product and contains lactose.
Lactic acid: Lactic acid may be added to some processed foods, so it may also contain lactose. You need to check the food label carefully.
Chocolate: Some chocolate products contain lactose, especially milk chocolate.
Baked goods: Many baked goods, such as cakes, cookies, etc., may contain lactose.
