Food Allergy - Milk

This week I will be focusing on Milk to guide everyone what allergy can it cause and how to consume nutrients contain in milk. When we mention the word Milk, most of us will relate to of cow’s, goat’s milk and dairy products. Hidden ingredients of milk actually included yogurt, cheese, cream, butter, evaporated or condensed milk, dairy ice-cream, biscuits, bread, buns, confectionery (sweets, chocolate), crisps, ham and other packet soups.

Here are 2 main allergy that milk product cause:

Cow’s milk protein allergy which is also known as cow’s milk protein intolerance or cow’s milk snesitive enteropathy, mainly affects babies in the first year of life. Symptoms started with gastroenteritis, include vomiting, diarrhea, colic and poor weight gain.

     Lactose intolerance which is the inability or insufficient ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products, caused by deficiency of the enzyme lactase. People with latose intolerance may feel uncomfortable (abdominal pain, bloating) after consuming milk and milk products.

I hope everyone who drink milk everyday take note of the effect which can cause if you are allergy to Milk. I will further explain the proper diet for milk intake for the next post. Have a nice day.
