Lacteeze Now Monash University Low FODMAP Certified!


Lacteeze, 29 February 2024

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder characterised by symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. One dietary approach that has shown promise in managing IBS symptoms is the low FODMAP diet. FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates that can trigger digestive symptoms in sensitive individuals. The low FODMAP diet involves restricting foods high in FODMAPs, then gradually reintroducing them to identify specific triggers.

One challenge for individuals following the low FODMAP diet is managing lactose intake, as dairy products are a common source of FODMAPs. Lactose intolerance, which is common in individuals with IBS, can exacerbate symptoms. Lacteeze lactase enzymes can be a valuable tool for those following the low FODMAP diet. Lacteeze helps break down lactose in dairy products, making them easier to digest and reducing the likelihood of symptoms.

Recently, select Lacteeze products received low FODMAP certification from Monash University, a leading institution in FODMAP research. This certification means that Lacteeze meets the strict criteria set by Monash University for low FODMAP foods and can be safely used by individuals following the low FODMAP diet.

Incorporating Lacteeze into a low FODMAP diet can help individuals with IBS enjoy dairy products without experiencing uncomfortable symptoms such as gas, bloating, diarrhoea and abdominal discomfort. Simply take 1-2 Lacteeze lactase enzymes before eating dairy to supplement your digestive system with the enzymes it needs.

The Monash certified Lacteeze products are offered in a range of lactase enzyme supplements in chewable tablet and caplet form to help people with lactose intolerance digest dairy products more comfortably.

Lacteeze Tablets: Are suitable for anyone with mild to moderate lactose intolerance as they contain 4,000 ALU (Acid Lactase Units - the international index for lactase efficiency). They are available in a mild mint flavour and come in 10 tablet trial packs and 120 tablet bottles.

Lacteeze Double Strength caplets: These are designed for individuals with moderate to severe lactose intolerance or those consuming larger amounts of dairy. They provide a higher dose of lactase enzyme (9,000 ALU) to help break down lactose more effectively. They are also available in a natural vanilla flavor and come in convenient blister packs of 8 or 40 caplets.

There have been many clinical trials on the efficacy of lactase enzymes. Lacteeze is TGA approved and may help reduce symptoms of gas, bloating, diarrhoea and abdominal discomfort associated with lactose intolerance.
