So, what is laktozė?

Lactose, also known as milk sugar, is a type of carbohydrate found in milk and dairy products. It consists of glucose and galactose molecules linked together, making it a disaccharide. Lactose is essential for infants' growth and development, as it provides energy and nutrients. However, some individuals are lactose intolerant, meaning they lack the enzyme necessary to break down lactose in their digestive system, causing discomfort and gastrointestinal symptoms. Lactose is commonly used as an ingredient in processed foods, such as baked goods, and it can also be found in medication and supplements as a filler or binding agent.
