Healthy soups for Lactose Intolerance

Comfort food less the discomfort!

For many people, being lactose intolerant is such a bummer because dairy is what we often think of as “comfort food”; if you are lactose intolerant, eating dairy is anything but comforting.   Cobblestone offers the “comfort food” feeling in its healthy soups less the discomfort related to dairy.  Creamy Soups are made with cashews rather than dairy, are low sodium, no gluten, soy, or MSG.  So you have the creamy texture, great flavor, high protein, and the added bonus of no discomfort.

 

If you think you have a problem, but are not sure of the symptoms, read what the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC) has to say about Lactose Intolerance.

What is lactose intolerance? 

"Lactose intolerance is the inability or insufficient ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells lining the small intestine. Lactase breaks down lactose into two simpler forms of sugar called glucose and galactose, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream."

Who is at risk for lactose intolerance?

"Lactose intolerance is a common condition that is more likely to occur in adulthood, with a higher incidence in older adults. Some ethnic and racial populations are more affected than others, including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, and Asian Americans. The condition is least common among Americans of northern European descent."

Infants born prematurely are more likely to have lactase deficiency because an infant’s lactase levels do not increase until the third trimester of pregnancy.

What are the symptoms of lactose intolerance?

"People with lactose intolerance may feel uncomfortable 30 minutes to 2 hours after consuming milk and milk products. Symptoms range from mild to severe, based on the amount of lactose consumed and the amount a person can tolerate."
