People have become increasingly concerned about consuming healthy foods, which has brought lactose-free food products to the fore. Lactose is a sugar molecule present in milk and is a rich source of energy, but it could cause digestion problems for people whose bodies can’t tolerate the effect of lactose.

On account of the ready availability of lactose-free food products, the demand within the global market is expected to escalate over the coming years. Lactose in synthesized in the body by breaking it down into galactose and glucose by an enzyme called lactase. A lack of lactase in the body results in lactose-intolerance which can in turn lead to a number of disorders.
