Allergies vs intolerances

Allergy to milk protein is a disease characterised by an exaggerated response of the immune system to milk proteins, mainly casein, which can cause redness, rashes or tearing, leading to serious breathing problems or even anaphylactic shock in the most severe cases.

Intolerance to lactose, the sugar naturally present in milk, occurs when a person is deficient in lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose, which can cause digestive, dermatological, neurological or endocrine problems.

Although intolerance can be bothersome and have a negative impact on quality of life, it’s not as dangerous or serious as an allergy.In these cases, the recommended treatment is to consume milk and lactose-free products. In addition, depending on the degree of intolerance, milk by-products may also be consumed, like butter and cheese.
