(Roseburg, OR.—September 5, 2014) At Umpqua Dairy we believe everyone should be able to enjoy the delicious taste of milk, even if you are lactose intolerant. Because of this we have developed Umpqua Dairy 100% Lactose Free Milk, a delicious milk that has all the goodness of our award winning milk, but is lactose free. You can find Umpqua Dairy 100% Lactose Free milk in Homogenized Whole and 2% Reduced Fat varieties at your favorite local grocer in a half gallon white light blocking jug.
Lactose intolerance is the body’s inability to process the milk sugar called Lactase, found in most dairy products. By adding a natural Lactase enzyme to our milk, we break Lactose down into two simpler sugars called glucose and galactose. The simpler sugars are easier for those with lactose intolerance to digest. During processing, the enzyme breaks down the sugar in milk and the result is sweeter milk. The nutritional values remain the same, so no extra sugar, calories or fat. Not only is this new milk lactose free, it’s also naturally gluten free.
Look for product demonstrations in your local grocery store, along with great recipe ideas that are lactose and gluten free. For more information about lactose intolerance check out our website (umpquadairy.com) and Facebook page.
Our new 100% Lactose Free Milk will be available the week of September 15th, 2014. If you don't see it in your favorite local grocery store, ask them to order it.
