Infant Products

Lactose is the main carbohydrate source in most Similac® formulas.

  • Similac® Alimentum®, Similac® Sensitive® Lactose Sensitivity, and Similac Total Comfort® are formulated with an alternate carbohydrate source and therefore contain only inherent sources of lactose (from the milk protein source).
  • Similac® Isomil®, our soy-based, naturally lactose-free formula, is suitable for babies with galactosemia or congenital lactase deficiency.

Adult Products

All adult nutritional products contain some milk protein, with the exception of Pedialyte®, Pedialyte® Powder Sticks, Pedialyte® AdvancedCare® Plus Powder Sticks, and Pedialyte® Freezer Pops.

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.

All 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.
