Guide to Complex Intolerances Cow’s Milk
If you have a cows’ milk intolerance your body reacts negatively to the milk protein. This does not mean however that you will automatically have the same reaction to sheep or goat’s milk. Unless you have been tested separately for sheep and goat’s milk it is advisable to remove all animal milks if you react to cows milk. Milk intolerance is different to Lactose Intolerance; if you have a positive reaction to cow’s milk, you should avoid lactose-free milk as well. This is because the reaction involves the milk protein, not the milk sugar (lactose).
