That's what I thought - and have just confirmed via a quick Google.




BTW - and sorry for asking this here, but I can't PM you - what did I do in my previous post that needed editing please? Twice... I'm starting to worry I'm sleep typing...
You're not doing anything wrong - I pressed the wrong button. You should be able to PM me, the mod list shows the "send pm" button.

Lactose is definitely a sugar, not a carb.
Sugars are carbohydrates.

Yes, but first, lactose is a sugar. It's the "ose" bit...


Carbs I can process.




I'm just being nit-picky.

Not nit-picky, just wrong.

Lactose is a sugar. Sugars are carbohydrates.

Starches are just complex sugars. Go and chew on a piece of bread for ten minutes and you'll see for yourself.

Good Morning Mr Breakfast.


Bread I can eat. Carbs I can eat. Moo juice not so much.


But thank you for the reminder. I'm clearly having one of those days already.

Table sugar = sucrose = glucose + fructose
Lactose = galactose + glucose
Sucrose and lactose are complex sugars (disaccharides), whereas glucose, fructose and galactose are simple sugars.

Re: Have I got a problem?

Not wanting to stir the conversation away from the science, but I got a package of black chocolate from Schönenberger (let's just say my boss noticed they are over-burding me with work and he thought keeping the pregnant lady happy would be a good idea...)

Considering the quantity I indulged on, and the lack of bad reaction, I'd say it could also be a good option. It also tastes pretty good...

I'm lactose intolerant (no milk, cream, or cow* products in general really)

[snip]




* ewe, buffalo and goat are all fine
RufusB,

are you aware that all mammals' milk (including human) contain lactose?

Link:
Your better tolerance of non-cowmilk products could be linked to the decreased lactose content in other mammals' milk. Meaning a glass of cows' milk (4.8-5g/100ml) won't have the same effect as a glass of goats' milk (4.2g/100ml) or human milk (7g/100ml).

well technically, dark chocolate shouldnt contain milk or other stuff but it usually does.

What FDA Learned About Dark Chocolate and Milk Allergies

you have to scroll down a little to see what percentages of dark chocolate contain milk.

the lindt 70% said it could contain milk, nuts and 2 other ingredients, which according to the fda stats means you have to assume it most likely does.
What relevance does a US organisation's report on US chocolate (which under EU law would normally be classified as cheese) have to chocolate produced in Switzerland?

Hiya Glowjupiter - I hope you and yours had a lovely Christmas.


Yep - I did know, thank you (not the exact figures, admittedly, it's been years since I did my research). I realised there had to be some reason why I could eat feta, halloumi and buffalo mozzarella and not be ill so did some finding out in my mid twenties.


I don't think my intolerance is as severe as other people's can be but I know I must, must, must steer clear of dairy products, particularly milk and cream. I can, however, eat butter and really heavily processed "cheese" such as the stuff they bung on a burger. I've become one of those who scrutinise a menu and interrogate the waiter... thankfully most establishments are happy to accommodate me by pointing out the relevant stuff/asking the chef as they don't want an ill customer. The ones that don't, I don't eat at again.



I do tend to stay clear of cheese (particularly cooked cheese) as it triggers days-long full-works migraines. Again, I learned pretty quickly that sometimes cheese would just taste wrong, and soon thereafter, wham... darkened room, pain killers, immobility...


Anyhew... I digress. Thank you for the links - Mini Rufus is stirring so I'll look at them later.

Best


Ruth
