If you get gas, bloating or diarrhea from milk or other dairy foods, it could be due to the milk sugar, lactose. Extra Strength LACTAID Tablets contain lactase enzyme that breaks down the lactose into easily digested sugars to prevent uncomfortable symptoms.

Each Extra Strength LACTAID Tablet contains 4500 Food Chemical Codex Lactase Units (FCCLU).

Directions for Use

Swallow or chew tablets just before eating any food containing lactose. The amount of Extra Strength LACTAID you need depends on the amount of lactose in the food you eat. Start with 2 tablets and adjust up or down to find your own personal requirement. Four (4) tablets at any one time should prevent the symptoms caused by lactose intolerance. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.


  • Do not use if you have had a reaction to any LACTAID product.
  • Keep away from heat.
  • Do not refrigerate Extra Strength LACTAID Tablets.

Individuals with diabetes should be aware that the milk sugar will now be metabolically available and must be taken into account (25 g of glucose and 25 g of galactose per litre of milk).
