Lactose intolerance is a condition where adults are unable to effectively digest lactose (milk sugar). Most adults do not continue to produce the lactose digesting enzyme in adulthood. Symptoms of lactose intolerance include increased gas, diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating, taking place after ingesting lactose containing food. Diary products are a good source of calcium however, and there are many products on the market to aid in lactose digestion. The use of probiotic supplements have been found to aid adults in the digestion of milk based products, such as yogurt.
