The Lactose Digestion Education Campaign Aims to Support You with Your Digestive Health

Through co-developed educational resources, the Lactose Digestion Education Campaign raises awareness and knowledge of digestive health, lactose intolerance, lactose maldigestion and the effects yogurt may have on lactose intolerants and lactose maldigesters. Educational resources released, in several languages (English, French, and Spanish) and in support of the campaign, include a Q&A on Lactose Intolerance, a White Book and an Infographic.
