(HealthDay News) -- Lactase is an enzyme that is typically found
in milk and other dairy foods. It's also added to many non-dairy
products, which is bad news for people who can't digest the enzyme
properly. The condition is known as lactose intolerance.
The American College of Gastroenterology says foods that may be
harboring lactase include:
- Baked goods, including breads and processed breakfast
- Breakfast foods, drinks and instant potatoes.
- Margarine and non-kosher lunch meats.
- Condiments, such as salad dressings.
- Snack foods such as candy.
- Mixes for cookies, pancakes and biscuits.
- Instant meals in powdered form.
