Helps Overcome Lactose Intolerance
For most of us, dairy products are an integral part of a good diet. However, many people are unable to consume dairy products because of a lactase deficiency. According to Health Canada nutrition recommendations, the term lactose intolerant is often used, but the correct term is lactase deficiency. Lactase is the enzyme found in the human gastrointestinal tract that is capable of breaking down the lactose sugars found in dairy products. People who are lactase deficient can’t break down the lactose, and this results in bloating, cramps and diarrhea Most lactase deficient people have learned over the years either to avoid milk products or to consume them in small quantities to prevent the symptoms.
Researchers have shown that cultured milk products such as dahlicious Lassi that contains live bacteria may be one way of overcoming lactase deficiency. dahlicious Lassi contains lactose because it is a milk product, but the bacteria in dahlicious Lassi possess the lactase enzyme. When you consume dahlicious Lassi, enough bacteria survive passage through the stomach to break down the lactose. In experiments, scientists have shown that cultured milks with live bacteria help overcome lactase deficiency.
The report The Technology of Traditional Milk Products in Developing Countries published by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) succinctly summarizes the health benefits of Dahi as follows:"Dahi is widely consumed in the country (India) along with meals. The digestibility of milk constituents improves. Dahi can also be consumed by people who suffer from lactose intolerance. Almost every household in the country consumes dahi. Due to fermentation of milk a greater amount of phosphorus and calcium is made available to the digestive system by their precipitation in the lower intestines due to the acid condition induced by Lactobacillus sp.; and the consumption of sour milk also results in increased efficiency of the body to cope with a sudden influx of lactic acid in the system.
It is reported that when the food is supplemented with 250 g of dahi a day, the status of thiamine improves. Dahi also increases the pyruvic acid and the lactic acid among children on a typical poor rice diet. Thus, dahi in its different forms, lassi, kadhi, shrikhand etc. also contributes significantly to the average diet."
