Top 10 Lactose-Free Milks in Malaysia 2022

Do you endure diarrhea, bloated stomach, stomach cramps, stomach rumbling, and feeling sick after taking one glass of milk? Those are the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Still and all, you don’t have to cut milk off entirely. Lactose-free milk can be your superb alternative to help you put an end to those symptoms. 

What exactly is lactose-free milk? Lactose is a type of sugar contained in milk products, and lactose intolerance happens when your stomach cannot digest it. Moreover, unlike other regular milk, lactose-free milk has added enzyme lactase to break down the lactose in milk, making it easier to digest. Due to the limited lactose-free milk products in Malaysia, product number 4 onwards are dairy-free milk, which is also lactose-free that you can give a try.

Avoidance is the quick fix for lactose intolerance, yet it is not the only solution as you still need calcium in your diet. You can have a win-win situation with lactose-free and dairy-free milk — calcium and a non-bloated stomach at once. 

Nonetheless, there’re a few things you need to look for when buying lactose-free or dairy-free milk.

  1. Make sure it is non-oil milk.

Most plant-based milk contains oil to act as an emulsifier or thickener. The most common one is vegetable oil like sunflower oil and canola oil. So, why consume more oils if you choose plant-based milk for a healthy lifestyle?

  1. Always go for an unsweetened one. 

If you’re undergoing a low-fat diet, sugar is your ultimate enemy as it spikes insulin. When our body cells absorb too much glucose, our body will convert them into fat. Thus, you gain weight.

  1. Choose the one with fewer ingredients.

Most importantly, avoid artificial colourings, flavourings, additives, preservatives, and emulsifiers. Also, prioritize the one fortified with calcium and vitamins first. Then, avoid chemicals.
