    Can we have lactose-free milk on the diet?
    I’m not ready for kefir since it’s been less that 2 weeks since starting the diet.

    The ingredients of the lactose-free milk are:

    Partly skimmed milk
    lactase (enzyme)
    vitamin A
    palmitate
    vitamin D3

    I mean the ingredients seem fine but one thing i’m confused about is that it says 12g of sugar/per 250 mL making me wonder where it’s coming from… Hope I don’t sound dumb?
    Any answers?

    Thank you!

    The manufacturers of lactose-free milk add lactase to their milk (note difference in spelling). The lactase converts about 70 to 100% of the lactose into glucose and galactose; these are two sugars that are easier to digest than lactose. This is why milk in general shouldn’t be consumed on the diet – it’s going to feed the Candida regardless of what the manufacturers do to it.

    Don’t forget that cows are pumped full of antibiotics and hormones (unless organically farmed) and these will be present in their milk – another reason to steer clear!
