"Lactose" in ReStructure

ReStructure is unlike any other protein powder it is casein-free, and we have had no complaints from lactose-intolerant people with it. 

Here's how Dr. Dean address the concern about lactose/dairy in my ReStructure booklet that you can download from www.rnareset.com <http://www.rnareset.com>  - under Books. She "tongue-in-cheek" refers to people as having an allergy to the word lactose and encourage them to obtain a few individual serving size packets to test their own body. The RnA powder in ReStructure helps digest the meal and also helps digestion in general.

Because we don’t overly process our whey – there is some lactose milk sugar remaining - one-tenth of one teaspoon (0.625mg) in each serving of ReStructure. The present labeling laws say that a food with 0.5 grams of sugar can be listed as having zero sugar. One cup of milk contains 12,000-13,000 milligrams of lactose, which is 20,000 times the amount in ReStructure. It’s an infinitesimal amount, which does not trigger lactose intolerance, which is based on the breakdown of lactose by lactase enzymes.
     
Lactose intolerance occurs when the amount of lactose milk sugars you ingest overwhelms the ability of your lactase enzymes to break down the milk sugar. Undigested milk sugar becomes food for intestinal bacteria and yeast causing symptoms of abdominal pain, gas, bloating and diarrhea.

It’s actually a good idea to have a little lactose in your diet to keep your lactase enzymes active. Otherwise, if you have zero lactose in your diet, then your lactase enzymes wither away and if you are exposed to a small amount of lactose, you can have a more severe reaction. Along those lines, Dr. Dean recommends that you strive for 80 percent compliance with your yeast-free diet, which means you have a “get out of jail free card” that allows you to at least have that smidgeon of lactose that’s found in ReStructure – even if you take two servings a day, which she often does.
