Hi Michael

I have also pondered on this question over the last year...

The other thing I wondered about was what type to buy as a search on the internet seemed to bring up 2 types of lactase medications - 1 to have with liquid lactose products and one to have with meals containing lactose - which was a bit confusing to me... e.g. what is yoghurt? Liquid or food?

This week I decided that I just have to take the plunge... so I went into an apotheke in Darmstadt yesterday and was advised by the lady there to buy a lactase product that works for both drinks and meals!!

I am sorry to say that I haven't tried the capsules yet but hope to over the weekend.

The brand: LACTRASE
Strength: 3300 (although this product also comes in a higher strength)
Cost: aprox 16 euros for 100 capsules

I will come back here and let you know once I have tried them a few times. I am so looking forward to some hagen das ice cream and a glass of fresh bio milk ;-)

Good luck!

BP

Hi!
Thank's for your answere! I never heard that there's a difference beteween liquids and non-liquids... sounds incorrect to mee, because it's always a lactose molecule that hast to be split by the enzyme...
Anyways, I tried some Lactosolv from Austria and lactrase from germany (yes, me too), both worked fine. I think they are all the same...

best
Michael

at the austrian supermarket "Hofer" you can get 60 capsules of 4000FCC Lactase for 3 euros now! That't worth it!

Good day Zecke.
In the Seattle area of Washington State, as of January 2012, the best price for Lactase Enzyme that I've found is at Costco Wholesale. Presently they sell their own Kirkland brand "Fast Acting Lactase" 9000 FCC caplets (pills) at $14.79 (+ 10% tax) for 180 caplets. Which works out to $0.09 per caplet. One can also buy Lactaid Fast Act (9000FCC), 96 caplets for around $16 from Walgreens & other drugstores. Health stores and some chain stores such as Fred Meyer, also sell lactase caplets, but these are usually 3000 or 3500 FCC caplets and cost far more than the Kirkland brand noted earlier. In my own case I need to ingest a single 9000FCC lactase caplet when I consume about 10 grams of hard cheese - if I don't take any lactase, or if I take half a caplet, I'll soon have symptoms!
