Making lactose free milk!

Hello my Friends!
I am a home cheese maker and doing rather well, French living in Australia.
I have made cheeses with Lactose-free milk, and successfully so!
However, where I live, it is downright impossible to find lactose-free GOAT milk.
Can you help me with advice, and which products to use to delactose commercial milk, please?
I would be extremely grateful for that!
I very much want to make a L-Free Sainte-Maure... For a friend who craves goat cheese and can't have any, so far!
Many thanks and kindest regards.  :)


I am not a specialist, so please ask those who do know these things, but in the United States, goat's milk is very low in lactose. Also, the process of aging milk tends to eat up the lactose that is there anyway - as it is converted - and so lactose intolerant people have very few problems eating goat's milk cheeses. Again, please check with those who really know these things, but my lactose-intolerant niece eats goats-milk cheeses with no problems of any kind.


Hi MacGruff,
Many thanks for your input!
My friend can't even drink goat milk, unfortunately.
However, I have found a liquid lactase called Intoleran, that should solve my problem. We can also find Lacteeze in Australia.
This is the product: with instructions for use.
I keep on searching anyway...
Best regards. :D


Actually goat's milk is not generally lower in lactose than other milk (you can check nutrient databases for confirmation).  It's very common for people to think they are lactose intolerant when they are not.  There is likely something else bothering your niece when drinking cow's milk, MacGruff.

michoutim, Lacteeze is the way to go.  It's just an enzyme that splits the lactose into smaller sugars.  Completely safe and effective.


Hi Mike,
Many thanks! I'll check whether I can find Lacteeze in liquide form! My local health food shop has tablets but not liquid Lacteeze.
It is my supplier who told me that using lactase to ¨digest¨. divide, lactose into inoffensive glucose and galactose is the method used by producers of lactose free milk.
Best regards.
