    Each serving size (1 caplet) of LACTAID® Fast Act Caplet contains 9000 FCC units of lactase enzyme (derived from Aspergillus oryzae ).

    LACTAID® is the original lactase dietary supplement that makes milk and dairy foods more digestible for individuals with lactose intolerance. LACTAID® lactase enzyme hydrolyzes lactose into two digestible simple sugars: glucose and galactose. LACTAID® Caplets/Chewable Tablets are taken orally for in vivo hydrolysis of lactose.

    ACTIONS

    LACTAID® Caplets/Chewable Tablets work by providing the enzyme that hydrolyzes the milk sugar lactose (disaccharide) into the two monosaccharides, glucose and galactose.

    USES

    LACTAID® Supplements help prevent the gas, bloating, or diarrhea that many people may experience after eating foods containing dairy. *
