“Milk allergy should not be confused with lactose intolerance. A food allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to a speci#c food protein. A food allergy can be potentially fatal. Unlike food allergies, food intolerances do not involve the immune system. Lactose-intolerant people are unable to digest speci#c foods, and may experience symptoms such as nausea, cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea. While lactose intolerance can cause great discomfort, it is not life-threatening.“ (https://www.foodallergy.org/allergens/milk-allergy)
