What is lactose-free baby formula?
Lactose-free baby formula is made for infants who have lactose intolerance. People often confuse dairy-free and lactose-free formulas as the same, but in fact they are actually quite different.
Lactose-free formulas can still come from dairy sources, but they have the lactose component removed. On the other hand, dairy-free formulas come from completely non-dairy sources, such as soy or other plants. They’re also lactose-free.
