Lactose Intolerance means the intolerance to digest lactose, the principal component of sugar contained in the milk. Lactose is a sugar or disaccharide /a complex sugar/ formed by two molecule (glucose and galactose). Our body cannot digest this kind of sugar as it is. It needs a specifi enzyme, different to each saccharide, which can split up this sugar in a simple molecule (monosaccharide).
What is Lactase?
The necessary enzyme needed to digest the lactose is named LACTASE. If the lactase produced in our body is not enough it starts to ferment producing acids and gas.
Diffusion of lactose intollerance
Lactose intolerance is quite spread between half of the world’s population (based on the Lacto intolerant Italian Association data). For this reason in the last few years there is an ever growing demand of more digestable products without (or low containes) of lactose.
FREDDI’s line of lactose free products
To answer this demand, Freddi is now offering a line of products without this ingredient which is specifically studied for those who are intolerant to lactose. It is a complete line of high digestable products, which can assure levels of lactose below 0,0001 grams per 100 grams of product. Therefore it offers le possibility of a secure moment of relax by enjoying a snack.
The whole productive chain is carefully installed and chequed, so that to avoid contaminations. We guarantee to the milk allergic consumer, that from buying the raw materials to the production and packing of the product, the snack is a secure prodcut without any accidental contamination.
