Lactase is an enzyme that converts lactose into glucose and galactose. This enzyme is naturally present in the human intestine. When consuming dairy, most people in the world cannot convert all lactose present, due to insufficient lactase activity. Maxilact® can be used to “predigest” lactose in these products.
