FAQ about lactase tablets and capsules

Back

Our lactase capsules and tablets are safe to use several times a day. We do recommend that you stick to the maximum set number of tablets or capsules per day. For the lactase 2500 this is a maximum of 20 tablets per day, for the lactase 3000 and lactase 10,000 this is a maximum of 15 capsules per day. For the lactase 20,000, the maximum is 10 tablets per day.

If you have a lactose intolerance there are a number of options from which you can choose. Below, we briefly explain which product is suitable for various requirements. More information can be found on the product page of the relevant product. Lactase 2500 - our lowest dose, for a low degree of intolerance or when consuming small amounts of lactose. A small, easy to swallow tablet that is also ideal for children. Lactase 3000 - our standard capsules, to be used for a lower degree of intolerance or smaller amounts of lactose in the diet. Lactase 10,000 - our relatively high-dose capsules, ideal if you are sensitive to lactose or want to consume larger amounts of lactose. Lactase 20,000 - our strongest option, ideal for high levels of intolerance or when consuming large amounts of lactose. In addition, it is convenient to use because the tablets are breakable. Our lactase drops can be used to make your own liquid (sweet) dairy products lactose free, such as milk, cream or custard. Useful for cooking or baking. Our product once a day does not contain the lactase enzyme, but a combination of 6 specially selected lactic acid ferments, lactase precursors. Due to the fact that only one capsule per day needs to be taken, this is the most convenient solution.

Many of our products have a recommended dosage of 1 to 2 breakable tablets, 1 to 3 capsules, or even 1 to 4 tablets. We recommend starting with the highest dose, to see how you react, and then tapering down to a smaller dose next time. You can do this until you can see the minimum dose your body needs to avoid triggering the symptoms of your food intolerance. Of course, what you eat/drink and portion size will matter (as will the severity of your intolerance), but the general rule is that by starting high, you can tell more easily, if the product is helping you or not, rather than not being sure if it was enough. It is certainly helpful to taper the dose and see if you can go to a lower strength next time. Overdosing does not have any negative effect and is therefore not a bad thing. In some cases it is better to be on the safe side in order to avoid unnecessary complaints.

With the lactase tablets and capsules, we have different strengths available. This strength is expressed in FCC per capsule. You can choose from 2500, 3000, 10,000 and 20,000. If it is your first time trying one of our lactase products, we generally recommend trying one of the higher strengths first, for example the 10,000 or 20,000. Starting higher will give you a clearer indication of whether it will work well for you or not when you first try it. At a lower dose, it may be unclear if it helps or not, or it maybe that the dose wasn't high enough. If you have a milder degree of intolerance or only want to use the capsules or tablets for smaller amounts of lactose, you can choose the 2500 or 3000 strength - depending on whether you prefer to swallow a small tablet or a capsule. If you are more sensitive to lactose or want to consume larger amounts of lactose you may want to choose the 10,000 or 20,000.
