Coop launches new line of lactose-free products

Coop is taking an active stance and has released (this week) several new lactose-free products. Among them:

– 3 different flavors of ice cream
– Mozzarella
– Cottage cheese
– Whole milk
– Skimmed milk
– Vanilla-flavored milk
– Chocolate-flavored milk
– Curd cheese
– Cream
– Various yoghurts

This is great news for lactose intolerant people (including Asians and Africans of course) living in Switzerland! Coop has so far been very quiet in this sector, but Migros recently released a new line of soy-based products like puddings and chocolate drinks. This was a response to high demand from people on a vegan diet, but those with LI also profited from the move. That coop targets us specifically with this new line is fantastic. The products are made out of processed dairy milk, no soy involved (in case you’re worried about soy allergy).

Some small manufacturers, such as Breisgaumilch from Germany, already produce lactose-free cream for example, but that was a niche product only available in select stores in Germany. This is the first time such a product makes it to a Swiss mass-producer like Coop, who is present in nearly every larger town.

Olé!

I will try some of the stuff to see if it tastes like mold or toothpaste or newspapers.
