So, what is lactose and milk protein?

Lactose and milk protein are essential ingredients that are commonly found in dairy products. Lactose is a type of sugar that is naturally present in milk, while milk protein contains a variety of different proteins, including casein and whey. These two nutrients work together to provide several benefits, such as supporting bone health and muscle growth. Additionally, lactose and milk protein are often used as ingredients in various food products, such as protein bars, shakes, and desserts, due to their nutritional value and creamy texture. However, it is important to note that individuals with lactose intolerance may experience digestive issues when consuming these ingredients.
