Lacteeze Drops

LACTEEZE DROPS work differently to our caplets and tablets. They are not taken orally but are added to liquid dairy products to convert the lactose into more easily digestible glucose milk sugars. This conversion process needs to take place before the dairy product is consumed.

Lacteeze Drops are recommended for people who suffer from:

  • Lactose intolerance
  • Lactose malabsorption
  • Inability to digest lactose in dairy
  • Gas, bloating, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea associated with the digestion of dairy.

How Lacteeze Drops work:

Lacteeze Drops contain a form of Tilactase which is derived from yeast. This type of lactase enzyme has been used for many years to hydrolyse the lactose in milk to make lactose-free products. Once Lacteeze is added to milk (or any other liquid dairy product) a conversion process takes place where the lactose is broken down into simple glucose and galactose milk sugars which can be more easily digested.

A common use of Lacteeze Drops is to reduce the lactose content of baby’s feeds. Clinical trials have shown significant improvement in the symptoms of babies with colic associated with lactose intolerance after pre-treating their feeds with lactase enzyme drops. Lacteeze Drops are suitable for breast and bottle feeding. Click here for more information on colic associated with lactose intolerance.

Lacteeze Drops can also be used to convert the lactose in milk, flavoured milk, cream, infant formula and breastmilk. By making your own lactose-free milk with Lacteeze you can decide how much lactose you want to convert. The more drops you add or the longer you leave the mixture before consumption, the more lactose is converted and the sweeter the final product is. It is also cheaper to convert your own milk with Lacteeze than to buy store-bought lactose-free products.

Lacteeze Drops should not be taken orally as the pH of the drops will render them less effective as they travel through the stomach.

Benefits of Lacteeze Drops:

  • Reduces symptoms of colic associated with lactose intolerance.
  • Enables mothers to continue breast feeding even when baby is lactose intolerant.
  • Can be used to make your own lactose-free products.
  • Can be used in cooking or frozen once the conversion process has taken place.
  • Lacteeze is all natural, contains no drugs and nothing is absorbed by the body.
  • Lacteeze is safe for newborns.
  • Lacteeze is safe during pregnancy.

Directions for Use:

Reducing lactose in cow’s milk:

  • Add 4 drops of Lacteeze to 1 litre of milk.
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 24 hours before use. This will convert 70-80% of lactose.
  • To convert more lactose, simply refrigerate for longer or increase the number of Lacteeze drops used to 8-10 drops.

For use in babies feeds:

Babies vary in their levels of lactose intolerance, and feed sizes may vary.

The following instructions are a guide only. If baby still has lactose intolerance systems you can increase the amount of lactose converted by either increasing the number of the drops used per feed or increase the length of time the mixture is left prior to use.

Once conversion has completed, the mixture can be frozen or heated.

Breast feeding:

  • Express 2 tablespoons of breastmilk into a sterilised container.
  • Add 4 drops of Lacteeze and mix well.
  • Give mixture to baby then breastfeed as normal.

Bottle feeding (suitable for breastmilk or infant formula):

  • Add 4 drops of Lacteeze to warm feed (not hot).
  • Mix well and wait 30 minutes before giving to baby.
  • Do not refrigerate.
  • Discard any unused feed.

Advanced preparation (suitable for breastmilk or infant formula):

  • Add 2 drops of Lacteeze to warm feed (not hot).
  • Mix well.
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours and use within 12 hours.
  • Warm to feeding temperature and feed baby as normal.
  • Discard any unused feed.
