Their new lactose-free milk is made entirely from real Jersey milk and includes all its natural vitamins and nutrients but has the lactose – the naturally occurring sugar found in milk – removed.
Eamon Fenlon, managing director of Jersey Dairy, said that the new milk was ideal for those who love milk but have an intolerance to lactose that causes unpleasant digestive symptoms.
‘Lactose-free milk is made with Jersey cow’s milk but we’ve added the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose, making it easier to digest.’
He said that the product tatsed just like regular milk.
The new milk contains 2.5% fat – the same as the green cartons of normal milk – but will be sold in a purple pack to make it easy to identify.
