Dairy products can contain a sugar called 'lactose' to which some people are intolerant.
I think you mean "lactose intolerant."Lactose is milk sugar. All small babies can digest lactose, but many people lose their ability to digest it as they get older--that is why they get sick from drinking milk. People who can still digest milk sugar as adults are "lactose tolerant"; people who cannot digest it are "lactose intolerant."
because they don't produce enough of the enzyme lactase to digest the lactose :) hope it helped.
Some people don't produce any enzymes, including the one needed to digest lactose
Lactose intolerance is an inability for the small intestines to digest lactose. Lactose intolerance often happens as people get older, and is something that tends to run in families.
I am trying to find that out! I will answer question when I find it! Sorry I probably shouldn't post this as the answer to your question, but I kinda am. :)
They are known as people with lactose intolerance - and that's about it.
It is possible to add a bacteria to the milk that will digest the lactose. It is also possible to use a cottage or yogurt bacteria and change the milk to a more digestible form. You still have to treat the milk, not the person. Perhaps some day chromosome therapy will enable lactose intolerant people to enjoy milk.
Lactose of course! People who cannot properly break down this sugar usually refrain from drinking milk or consuming any dairy product. We call those people lactose intolerant.
People who are lactose intolerant. =]
Some lactose-intolerant people can eat pizza, while others cannot. It depends on the severity of the intolerance.

lactose free milk has the same calcium content as regular milk, barring additives
Are you talking about lactose intolerance? If so, people are lactose intolerant because they do not have the enzyme lactase that is use to digest the lactose. The gene that codes for the lactase cease to be express when they get older . Other people keep expressing the gene for their entire life.
Depends what is in the cake.
not as hard as me
Lactase, an enzyme required for the complete metabolisation of lactose
Ricotta cheese is made from lactose-rich whey, so it should be avoided by people who are lactose intolerant.
If you are lactose intolerant, it is probably a good idea to avoid whey products. Whey is a byproduct of the cheese making process; while it might not contain as much lactose as milk, it can still cause stomach problems for the lactose intolerant.
