Lifting the Veil on Lactose Intolerance
In her letter, Jean H. Ragalie, RD and President of National Dairy Council, addresses common misperceptions about lactose intolerance, as many Americans self-diagnose the condition before consulting with a doctor or registered dietitian and avoid dairy unnecessarily. Ragalie highlights that dairy foods do much more than just deliver nutrients – they can play a vital role in a healthy lifestyle, contributing to nutrient intake and overall diet quality. As February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month, Ragalie highlights this as an opportunity to provide helpful information on managing lactose intolerance.
