Lactase

schéma Lactase

Description

Lactase is an enzyme capable of breaking down lactose, the main sugar present in milk. Lactose is a disaccharide composed of two simple sugars: glucose and galactose.

 

Although the human body produces lactase, its biosynthesis naturally tends to decrease with age, which significantly reduces the assimilation of lactose provided by the diet. This is known as lactose intolerance. In fact, due to the lack of sufficient lactase, the lactose is not completely digested and ends up in the colon, where it is fermented by bacteria, which leads to the production of gas that causes bloating.

 

Other consequences of lactose intolerance include diarrhea and abdominal pain.

 

Lactase intake therefore helps to break down lactose while avoiding the symptoms of this food intolerance.

The benefits

Lactase improves the digestion of lactose in individuals who have difficulty to digeste it.
