Health Tip: Foods With Lactose

(HealthDay News) -- Intolerance to lactose, if present at all, varies from person to person, the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says.

For many, symptoms can be avoided by reducing the amount of lactose consumed in dairy foods or beverages.

But first you have to know that lactose is in the food you're about to eat or drink. The agency mentions these ingredient "buzzwords" that indicate the presence of lactose:

  • Milk.

  • Lactose.

  • Whey.

  • Curds.

  • Milk by-products.

  • Dry milk solids.

  • Nonfat dry milk powder.
