Many studies have found that even if you have your grilled cheese sandwich every day, we’re all a little lactose intolerant we’ve just become accustomed to the bloat and gas. That’s why many people feel much better directly after stopping dairy, while others can go their whole lives eating it without feeling any side effects. Those who suffer from lactose intolerance don’t produce enough of an enzyme called lactase which is produced in the gut and helps break down lactose, the main sugar found in milk.

If you’re one of those who suffer from side effects of eating lactose but you love dairy, the good news is you don’t have to give it up completely. There are a few dairy-based foods that won’t trigger any stomach troubles due to their naturally low lactose content.
