Perfect for everyday uses such as spreading on toast or topping-off a piping-hot jacket potato, Lactofree Spreadable is also ideal for making short crust pastry and delicious cakes or biscuits. So now baking enthusiasts can get their pinnies on and start having fun again - just dust off those delicious recipes and get baking. Sweet creations can even be topped off with some proper home-made 'butter' icing! Delicious.
Until now lactose intolerant cake lovers have had to make do with dairy free butter substitutes or just haven’t realised that the substitutes they are tolerating, like products derived from Goats milk, still contain lactose. This could mean that while enjoying the pleasure of a buttery shortbread finger with their tea, the painful symptoms of lactose intolerance could be close behind. With Lactofree Spreadable people can rest assured that they get only the best buttery taste without the reminder of their guilty pleasure later on!
Thought to affect up to 15% of the UK population (1 in 7 people), lactose intolerance is the body's inability to produce enough of the enzyme lactase in the digestive tract. Without it, lactose - the natural sugar in milk and other dairy products - cannot be digested properly, causing symptoms of nausea, stomach cramps and bloating following the consumption of dairy products.
Lactofree Spreadable is available from Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's stores from ￡1.60 (RRP). The Lactofree range also includes; whole and semi-skimmed dairy drink (fresh and UHT), hard and soft cheese, fruit yogurts, handy 20ml UHT portion packs and cream.
