Lactofree, the UK’s only range of lactose-free* dairy products, has added another indulgent addition to its range, in plenty of time for the summer. New Lactofree vanilla ice cream has the same taste as regular dairy, just without the lactose.
Perfect for making scrumptious ice cream sundaes and homemade milkshakes, a generous dollop of Lactofree ice cream is also a delicious accompaniment to juicy fresh strawberries, apple crumble, pancakes, or even on its own. And because lactose is normally the part of the ice-cream that crystallises when frozen, lactose-free ice cream is especially smooth and creamy, as the best ice cream should be. The product comes in a convenient re-sealable tub, ideal for the whole family to enjoy, whether they are lactose intolerant or not!
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 found in milk and other dairy products) cannot be digested properly, causing symptoms such as nausea, stomach cramps and bloating after consuming dairy products.
Lactofree ice cream is available from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Waitrose, from £3.49 (RRP) for 1 litre. The Lactofree range also includes; whole and semi-skimmed (fresh and UHT), hard and soft cheese, fruit yogurts, UHT portion packs, cream and spreadable.
