Lactose Information

All Abbott Nutrition products, with the exception of Similac® Isomil® and our pediatric specialty products, contain some milk protein. With improvements in testing methodology, low levels of lactose in our products can now be detected.​

Most people with lactose intolerance can tolerate a certain amount of lactose in their diet. A review of the medical and scientific literature1,2 suggests that most lactose-intolerant patients could tolerate up to 6 g of lactose per serving.

The Abbott Nutrition adult products and those pediatric products listed below contain less than 500 mg of lactose per serving and are therefore suitable for most people with lactose intolerance.
