Creamy salad dressings, rich pasta sauces and tasty melted cheese. Who doesn’t love a dinner filled with creamy favorites? We all want to make the perfect dinner with creamy dishes our family can enjoy together. If you or a family member is lactose intolerant or sensitive to dairy due to lactose, you might be thinking that’s not as easy as it seems. Well, good news…it is.

There are actually plenty of dairy options you can incorporate in your meals, like yogurt, which has live and active cultures to help to digest lactose. Many people can digest natural cheeses like Cheddar, Colby, Monterey Jack, and Swiss, because most of the lactose is removed during the cheese making process.

But why stop there? Bring dairy front and center in your favorite dinner recipes with lactose free dairy products like LACTAID® Milk and LACTAID® Cottage Cheese. They’re 100% real dairy, just without the lactose, which means you can enjoy your favorite creamy dinner dishes without discomfort due to lactose. LACTAID® Dairy Products are not only delicious but helpful too! Use them in your favorite recipes to make them lactose free, so you can savor every dairy dish on your menu, to the last creamy bite!

As an added bonus, LACTAID® Milk is healthy and nutritious. You and your family will get the essential nutrients found in dairy, including calcium, protein, and vitamin D that are essential for strong bones and teeth!
