Lactose intolerance; it's a lot more prevalent than most people think. Around 70 per cent of the world's population is unable to comfortably digest lactose, the naturally occurring sugar in milk.
Thankfully, Anchor has developed Zero Lacto. As the name implies, it's completely lactose free. This is great news for the estimated 500,000 New Zealanders that are lactose intolerant. Anchor Zero Lacto has all the goodness and great taste of fresh milk but is completely lactose-free^.
Anchor Zero Lacto is available both as blue milk and trim milk. Anchor Zero Lacto Blue milk is suitable for children, as it's a full-fat milk. Anchor Zero Lacto Trim is 99.5% fat free skim milk. Trim milk, like all fat-free milks, is not suitable as complete milk food for children under the age of two.
Baristas will be interested to know that Anchor Zero Lacto milk froths just like standard Anchor milk and is a cheaper alternative to Soy milk*. All the more reason to start offering Zero Lacto Lattes for your customers!
^Anchor Zero Lacto is suitable for people with Lactose Intolerance, but not suitable for people with dairy intolerance.
