If you consume milk and it causes indigestion which is associated with vomiting, gas, nausea and loose motion, you are most certainly suffering from lactose intolerance. Yea… remember, if you don’t like smell or flavour of milk, then you are not lactose intolerant, you just don’t like milk!

If you are facing lactose intolerance, then instead of removing entire dairy from your meal, you should consume fermented dairy products, for example, Dahi, Curd, Sour milk, Matha etc.

What actually happens in lactose intolerance is that  a particular enzyme, Beta-galactosidase, native of colon, becomes unavailable in our small intestine. This enzyme helps in digestion of Lactose (milk sugar) by breaking it into glucose and galactose (Because our colon can not absorb Lactose as such). This glucose and galactose are further digested by other pathways in our colon and get absorbed. When galactosidase is not present or present in small numbers, lactose is not digested or improperly digested causing formation of gasses and other small compounds which cause diarrhea, vomiting, gas etc.

Beta-galactosidase enzyme develops in our colon during our infancy when we take mother’s milk. This is a natural enzyme. Same enzyme is also produced by certain fungus and bacteria.

Dahi is a production of such bacteria and yeasts only. They produce Beta-galactosidase enzyme which breaks lactose into glucose and galactose, which are further digested into lactic acid (this acid is responsible for sourness and curdling of milk, it is this acid only which gives sour taste to curd). So, when you consume Dahi, you are consuming already digested lactose, so your tummy will not have to worry for its load. Also, it is supplying Beta-galactosidase enzyme to your intestine and if you keep on consuming Dahi, someday, beta-galactosudase enzyme can be restored in the colon and you can again enjoy milk and its products!

There are plenty of tablets are available in the market carrying Beta Galactosidase enzymes and also lactose free milk (how come it is a milk if lactose is not there?), instead of taking them have Curd and Dahi in your meal. Tasty and natural way to restore your natural body.

Test purity of Milk at home

You may be hearing in news that plenty of synthetic or adulterated milk is out there and may be suspecting the milk you have is pure or not.

You can check purity of milk to some extent at your home without visiting any Lab. This simple test will help you to know whether milk is real of synthetic.

Prepare curd (Dahi) from the milk. For this, take milk, warm it and add a little amount of previously prepared Dahi (you can use Dahi available in the market, but its better use the loose one instead of packed). Keep it in warm place and observe after 24 Hours. If it is milk, smooth curd will form with a pleasant smell and sightly acidic and sweet test. But, if it is Synthetic milk, curd will not form. Even if it forms, it will be of very bad texture, frothy, smelling bad or like elastic.

This test will only work to know milk is real or synthetic, if milk is adulterated, like sugar addition, water addition, starch addition, vegetable oil addition etc. then this test will not work.

In the case of checking adulteration, if curd forms, take it and prepare Ghee out of it (in traditional way) and then observe it. If you have idea how  good Ghee smells and tastes, you would know for sure presence of any dulterant,

Try this test with the milk you get from your  Shop Apni.  http://www.shopapni.in
