Lactose is the main carbohydrate found in dairy products. A special enzyme called lactase is needed to be able to digest the milk sugar lactose. Some people lose the ability to produce this enzyme and may become lactose intolerant. Lactose is transformed in the intestine into glucose and galactose and is used by the body for energy.
