Abstract

Many people, especially non-Causcasians, have difficulty breaking down lactose (the sugar in milk) after early childhood. It results in gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhoea following ingestion of milk and milk products, known as lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is easily managed by simple dietary modification.
