Is lactose. vegan?

Lactose is a naturally occurring sugar found in milk and dairy products. It is a disaccharide made up of glucose and galactose, and it is an essential carbohydrate for the growth and development of mammals. However, many people are unable to digest lactose due to a deficiency in the enzyme lactase. This condition, known as lactose intolerance, can cause gastrointestinal discomfort such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Lactose is also a common ingredient in processed foods, including baked goods, candies, and medications, and it is often used as a filler or sweetener.

Lactose. is a non-vegan food ingredient.
