People who are lactose intolerant can’t properly digest lactose, the sugar found naturally in milk and other dairy products. Babies’ bodies make an enzyme that digests lactose — called lactase — so they can digest milk, including breast milk, but many people stop producing enough lactase at between two and five years of age.
Lactose intolerance is very common in adults and is not dangerous.
