Lactose Intolerant?

Official Sole Distributor of Buffalo Ridge Produce in the KwaZulu Natal Region

The Healthy Cows Milk Alternative !

At times, Lactose Intolerance can feel like a curse and it is especially difficult for the little ones, who cannot really comprehend the reasons behind why their favourite treats have all of a sudden been eliminated from their diet.

Describing the taste of milk, from the domestic water buffalo, is easy. It tastes like full cream cows milk. And, it smells like cows milk. It's that simple.

More nutritious and providing double the amount of calcium, protein and half the amount of cholesterol found in regular cow’s milk, our Latte di Bufala is the perfect milk substitute. Whilst it may be a fairly new concept to South African's (we tend to be a step behind) water buffalo products are a popular choice around the globe.

If you run, or own an establishment and would like to provide a healthy *cows' milk alternative to your customers, please feel free to contact us. Alternatively, if you are an individual, who would like to see our products in a store near you, let us know - and we will do our best to assist!

NO MILK IS TRULY LACTOSE FREE

Lactose intolerance is on the rise here in South Africa and more and more people are being diagnosed with this condition every day. There is also a lot of miss-understandings as to what exactly lactose intolerance means. Lactose Intolerance is a condition whereby one’s body is unable to produce any or enough, Lactase; an enzyme required by the body to digest Lactose (the main sugar found in milk). Lactose intolerance is on the rise here in South Africa and more and more people are being diagnosed with this condition every day. There is also a lot of miss-understandings as to what exactly lactose intolerance means. Lactose Intolerance is a condition whereby one’s body is unable to produce any or enough, Lactase; an enzyme required by the body to digest Lactose (the main sugar found in milk).

Those who are diagnosed with lactose intolerance are still able to tolerate certain amounts of lactose – as each individual has a different tolerance level depending on how much Lactase their own bodies are able to produce. The key lies in knowing your own body’s limit and choosing LOW lactose milk alternatives. Symptoms of lactose intolerance usually occur between 30 minutes and 2 hours after eating a dairy product and can either be mild or sever. Symptoms include; Bloating, Cramps, Diarrhea, Painful gas or Nausea.

Our Latte di Bufala (water buffalo milk) is naturally super low in lactose, making it the IDEAL cow’s milk substitute, allowing you the luxury of enjoying your favourite dairy treats, without any worries.

What makes our Latte di Bufala most appealing is not only that it tastes delicious; it has no ‘strange’ scent (as one may find with goats milk). It is also more nutritious than other cow’s milk substitutes boasting 40 percent less cholesterol, 50 percent more calcium and 40 percent more protein found in regular cow’s milk. A super healthy alternative.

In reality, there is no such thing as ‘lactose-free’ milk. All milk contains lactose, only in different quantities. Even ‘lactose-free’ cow’s milk found in supermarket stores is misrepresentation as this milk DOES contain lactose, however the addition of LACTASE (additive) assists with the digestion of the milk once it enters the body.

Water Buffalo milk contains exceptionally low levels of lactose, and can therefore safely be consumed, without causing any known side-affects, by those who are lactose intolerant, unlike cow’s milk.

Not Yet Medically Proven

All animal dairy milk products (Goat, Cow, Camel, Sheep, Buffalo) contain lactose. Because our buffalo milk is unadulterated and non-homogenized the lactose content present in our buffalo milk products appears to be more easily recognised by one’s body and therefore more easily digested.

With regards to allergies and lactose intolerance, we do not have Official data to support our claims. However, based upon our own readings and information provided to us verbally by both medical practitioners and customers themselves, we have never heard of anybody who is allergic to water buffalo milk.

We have many customers who are allergic to practically everything including soy milk and rice milk, but are able to safely consume our products without any problems. They also find our products an agreeable change from goats’ milk.

Buffalo milk tests are now included in the allergy test battery and so allergies to buffalo milk are now easily determinable. For those suffering with lactose intolerance, we recommend giving our products a go. If unsure, we advise talking to your GP or nutritionist.

Our products are also suitable for vegetarians as we only use microbial rennet in the production of our goods.
