To cater for the growing number of people with lactose intolerance and all those who wish to enjoy milk that is easy and pleasant to digest while retaining all its flavour and nutrients, KAIKU presents the first range of lactose-free products on the market: Kaiku Sin Lactosa.
What is Kaiku Sin Lactosa?
Kaiku Sin Lactosa is made from skimmed cow's milk. Using special technology we remove part of the lactose, which causes digestive discomfort in people with intolerance, and break the rest down into two fully digestible sugars (glucose and galactose); retaining the flavour, benefits and nutrients of the skimmed milk.
What is lactose intolerance?
About 15% of the population of Spain is lactose-intolerant, although there are no official statistics, because there are cases with a wide range of degrees of intolerance that have not been diagnosed - given that the condition is not pathological. The condition is an intestinal problem with the digestion of lactose, which is the form in which sugar naturally occurs in milk. This intolerance may be partial or total, and the onset may occur in childhood, adolescence or adulthood.
The most frequent symptoms of lactose intolerance are nausea, stomach cramps, inflammation, flatulence and/or diarrhoea after eating foods which contain lactose. These symptoms tend to appear between 30 minutes and 2 hours after eating, and to go away between 3 and 6 hours later. They occur because the lactose which has not been digested in the usual site - the small intestine - moves on to the colon and there it is fermented by the bacteria of the intestinal flora, producing hydrogen and other gases.
Until recently, the advice given to people with lactose intolerance was to cut down on the dairy products in their diet, or cut them out altogether. However, that meant losing out on essential nutrients of milk such as calcium, vitamin D, riboflavin and milk proteins - and, of course, its flavour.
