frequently asked questions about lactase drops


You can use the lactase drops for making various liquid (sweet) dairy products, lactose free. Depending on the amount and consistency of the product, you can add a number of drops. After 24 hours, 80% of all lactose in the product has been broken down. Products that you can make lactose free using the drops include: Milk (5 drops per litre) Chocolate milk (5 drops per litre) Coffee milk (5 drops per 250 ml) Whipped cream (5 drops per 250 ml) Cooking cream (5 drops per 250 ml) Condensed milk (10 drops per 250 ml) Mascarpone (10 drops per 250 ml) Cream cheese (10 drops per 250 ml)

Unfortunately, the drops are not resistant to an acidic environment and therefore they are not suitable to make acidic dairy products such as yogurt, cottage cheese, sour cream, crème fraîche or buttermilk lactose free. However, you can take a lactase tablet or capsule to still be able to properly digest all lactose.

Add the required number of drops to the dairy product. Make sure the drops are mixed well into the dairy product by shaking or stirring well. Then leave it in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. After 24 hours, at least 80% of all lactose will have been broken down. If you would like a completely lactose free dairy product, add more drops or leave it for longer in the refrigerator before use.
