LACTOSE INTOLERANCE

Postby SHERYLD » Mon Feb 01, 2010 8:05 am

My son is doing a project on Latose Intolerance "I Love Ice Cream, But It Doesn't Love Me: Understanding Lactose Intolerance". We have all but one of the materials need to start the project. I have gone to just about every store in and out of my area. We are in need of Lactase drops-- is there something else that I can use in place of it??? Help
Thanks

Hi SHERYLD,

With this project, you need the enzyme lactase in order to do it. I would think lactase drops are much easier to find than special ordering lactase from a chemical company. I found some lactase drops online at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Pharmax-Liquid-La ... 894&sr=8-2

I'm sure there are other places online too if you aren't a fan of amazon. I typed "lactase drops" into Google and got lots of results.

Good luck and let us know if you have more questions!
