PureFit protein bars are 100% non-dairy. Why is this important? Non-dairy is one of the most important features of every PureFit bar. It is probably the #1 reason competing protein bars are bothering your stomach. Lactose intolerance and dairy allergies are very common and affect many Americans. By removing whey based protein bars from your diet chances are you will feel better.
Lactose intolerance involves the digestive system: If you have it, your body doesn’t make lactase, the enzyme needed to digest lactose. That’s the sugar in milk. Instead of digesting normally in your stomach and small intestine, undigested lactose moves into your colon, where it’s broken down by bacteria and causes bloating and gas. It can be uncomfortable, but it’s not dangerous. Non-dairy PureFit protein bars are lactose free.
Lactose intolerance is common in adults – about 30 million Americans have it by age 20. Some estimates are as high as 50 million American adults are lactose intolerant. It’s more common in people with Asian, African or Native American heritage and less common in people with a northern or western European background.
Dairy allergy involves the immune system: If you have it, your body reacts to the proteins in milk and other dairy products as if they’re dangerous invaders. It releases substances that cause allergy symptoms. This allergic reaction can be mild (rashes) to severe (trouble breathing, loss of consciousness). Dairy allergy is one of most common allergies, especially in children. As many as 2 in every 100 children under 4 years old are allergic to milk. It’s even more common in babies. Non-dairy PureFit protein bars are a great choice for children, and adults.
