    whey to the lactose intolerant

    Do the effects of whey differ on lactose intolerant people?

    A quick google found this:

    Q: If I'm lactose intolerant should I avoid whey protein?

    A: Individuals with lactose intolerance should select a pure whey protein isolate, which has less than 0.1 gram of lactose per tablespoon (20 grams). This is less lactose than the amount found in a cup of yogurt and research has shown that most people with lactose intolerance have no trouble taking this very small amount of lactose. Individuals with lactose intolerance should avoid whey protein concentrates as they usually contain lactose and the amount can vary greatly from product to product.

    Sounds like it depends on the amount of lactose in the whey and how sensitive the person is.

    Are the lactose intollerant person?
