How is this lactose free if it contains milk?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Lactose isn't milk, lactose is the sugar in milk just like fructose is the type of sugar in fruits, and lactose can be either removed, or (and this is actually misleading) can be left in the product, and then be accompanied by a lactose enzyme called "lactase" artificially added. This is misleading because they can put "lactose free" on it, but all it really is is the lactose and the enzyme "lactase" that is added to "cancel" out the it's not technically "lactose free" but apparently close enough that they can legally get away with it.
