Some people suffer from a so-called lactose intolerance, the word lactose means milk sugar, a milk sugar intolerance. These people lack the enzyme lactase for some reason and they are therefore not able to digest the milk sugar fully, which is added nowadays to many foods in Europe. Mostly it comes to highly unpleasant digestive disorders like bloating, constipation or diarrhea. Since Japanese food does normally not contain lactose, these foods are ideal for people with lactose intolerance.
Cow’s Milk Intolerance
In addition to a lactose intolerance, many people also suffer from a so-called cow’s milk intolerance, that means these people simply do not tolerate dairy products or foods, which contain cow’s milk. Also in these cases it comes to similar digestive problems.Whether lactose intolerance or cow’s milk intolerance, in both cases Japanese foods are an alternative, since, as already mentioned, usually no milk products, milk sugar or something like that is contained in Japanese foods. Japanese foods are usually lactose-free and contain no dairy products! If in doubt, always refer exactly to the ingredients on the packaging!
