Hello everyone.

I was hoping someone here might be able to help me understand something about lactose free diet.

So I have IBS and I've been off lactose for quite some time now and that's really helped my gut. It hasn't been easy, especially since you can't find a lot of lactose free products where I live, except milk.

Anyway, every morning I eat cornflakes with lactose free milk and I haven't noticed any disturbances caused by it. Now, recently I noticed some lactose free cheeses and cookies in the local supermarket which has really cheered me up and I decided to try them out. Without going into too much detail, they really upset my stomach so I decided I won't be trying those again.
The question is how is it possible that I can't digest those lactose free products while I can digest lactose free milk? Has anyone had a similar experience?
