Lactose intolerance is a condition where people may be unable to tolerate significant quantities of lactose (the naturally occurring sugar in milk) as they have a shortage of the enzyme (lactase) which breaks the lactose down in order to digest it. The severity and symptoms of lactose intolerance may vary individually but many people with lactose intolerance may be able to consume some dairy products, such as hard cheese - which is naturally very low in lactose - and yoghurt - which contains live cultures which have already broken down some of the lactose. 

Lactose intolerance is different to cow’s milk allergy which is a severe and potentially life-threatening condition where all dairy products must be strictly avoided. Fresh’n Fruity Greek Yoghurt is NOT suitable for someone with a dairy or cow’s milk allergy.
