    Lactose free Milk (Cow)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ok, after many years of drinking coffee, it may have dawned on me that I might be slightly lactose intolerant

    So, SWMBO asked me to try lactose free alternative.... soy, almond, oats..... all terrible to my taste.

    Tried the Brownes lactose free milk which is the most drinkable option, but I found it to be very sweet and taste more like "ice coffee in a box" type taste...

    Anyone can recommend a lactose free cow milk that actually taste like real coffee?

    thanks

    my usual drink is either a latte or flat white

    Have you tried Zymil? Pauls make Zymil from cows milk with the Lactose already broken down. If it's just the Lactose that is the issue that's what I'd use. We've had some in the household recently for the daughters boyfriend and it steams well and tastes pretty much the same as regular milk.

    If you haven't already, give A2 milk a try - helped for me. My second choice is Zymil, as above.

    Liddells Lactose Free Milk. Taste is very slightly sweeter than Hi Lo
    99% Fat Free It's my daily. Don't like the Full fat variety
    textures beautifully
    Been using it for years

    Zymil is sold in all supermarkets in Melbourne. I steam it for my kids.

    A2 milk may not work for all lactose intolerant.

    I usually buy Zymil low fat but have recently been using full fat for coffees, steams much better (fewer bubbles) Both Coles and Woolies 1L cartons of full cream are also just as good in my opinion, probably out of the Pauls factory, and at 90c a litre cheaper its hard to justfy buying the brand name.
    I personally don't like the heat treated options, taste cheesey to me.

    You will probably find that all lactose free milks are sweeter than standard milk. This is because the lactose is broken down, through the addition of the enzyme lactase, to glucose and galactose - which are sweeter than lactose. This will probably contribute to the odd flavour.
