More and more frequently onthe market you find products that are characterised by the fact that they are suitable for individuals suffering from food intolerances.
Food intolerances include all those adverse reactions which do not involve the immune system and their causes are in particular to be debited to enzyme deficiency or to intolerances to vasoactive principles that are contained in foods (pharmachological intolerances).
Lactose intolerance is surely the most common in the adult population. People suffering from such an intolerance are not able to digest milk sugar, lactose,a disaccharide made of galactose and glucose, precisely because they have a deficiency of lactase enzyme. This enzyme is active part in the lactose resolution into the 2 monosaccharides that can finally be absorbed*.
In people who have this intolerance, lactose reaches colon fuelling anaerobic bacteria which are present in this tract and they produce as a result hydrogen and carbon dioxide which cause cramps, diarrhea and flatulence.
The diagnosis of lactose intolerance is based on the increase of H2 in the breath after lactose ingestion and it can be detected using H2 breath test.
