Lactose-free and low-lactose diets

Lactose is only found in milk and products containing milk. If the description of a food product refers to "milk, milk powder, butter, whey or whey powder", the product also contains lactose.

Low-lactose Atria products bear a marking declaring that they are low in lactose and the amount of lactose is stated below the table of nutritional information. Lactose-free products containing milk ingredients are labelled as lactose-free on Atria's packaging. Products that do not contain any milk-based ingredients are not labelled as lactose-free. However, such products are lactose-free and are suitable for lactose-free diets if they do not contain milk.
