Lactose intolerance foods to avoid

If you have lactose intolerance, limiting or avoiding foods containing lactose is important. These include:

  • Milk: whole, skim, low-fat, and condensed
  • Cream: heavy cream, sour cream, and cream cheese
  • Cheese: cheddar, mozzarella, and blue cheese
  • Yogurt: plain and flavoured
  • Ice cream
  • Butter
  • Margarine
  • Lactose-free milk products: These products have added enzymes that help to break down the lactose.

It's also important to be aware of foods that may contain hidden sources of lactose, such as:

  • Baked goods: bread, cakes, cookies, and pastries
  • Processed foods: lunch meats, sausages, and soups
  • Fried foods: French fries and fried chicken
  • Candy: chocolate and caramels
  • Medications: some pills and capsules may contain lactose as a filler

Just search for the name of the product/item on Ariso and get accurate recommendations on whether it will suit you or not.
