In the supermarket, customers find more and more articles on the shelves that explicitly advertise to be lactose-free. These products are also increasingly touted on television and the Internet is full of advertisements and texts from bloggers who report on the benefits of lactose-free nutrition. But is it advisable for everyone to eat without lactose? The fact is that about 15% of adults in europe are lactose intolerant. The symptoms of this intolerance are wide-ranging. Some people react to excessive consumption of Creamy Omelet (ไข่ข้น, which is the term in Thai) dairy products with upset stomach, nausea or vomiting, others react with flatulence or diarrhea. For those who suffer from these problems, a lactose-free diet is actually recommended. Alternatively, there are tablets that deliver the enzyme lactase to the body. This helps with the digestion of the lactose, if you have consumed it. The fact remains that most people can easily digest lactose. A lactose-free diet is simply not necessary for these people.
Who Needs Lactose Free Diet
Nevertheless, the food industry is constantly coming up with new products to attract customers who believe they have to eat a lactose-free diet. Lactose-free milk and cream are useful for people with lactose intolerance. However, there is still lactose-free cheese, lactose-free sausage or lactose-free bread. These items are cleverly advertised by the producers. The claim that these goods are lactose free is true. Consumers who are poorly informed buy these items with a clear conscience. However, they overlook the fact that most cheeses, sausages and breads do not contain lactose anyway, even if they do not advertise this feature. It is a simple trick to sell a product to the consumer at an inflated price. By applying for lactose-free food, the producer stands out from the crowd and achieves a higher profit. However, the customer could buy a cheaper food that would not fare worse in comparison.
