why does milk have sugar in it

Low-fat milk is a better option for controlling your blood sugar than a milk alternative like rice milk, according to a study published in "The Journal of Nutrition" in August 2013, which found that low-fat milk had less of an effect on blood sugar than rice milk. The proteins found in milk, including whey and casein, could be responsible for milk's relatively mild effect on blood sugar, since they may increase insulin and speed up the intake of glucose into your cells, according to an article published in "Nutrition & Metabolism" in 2013.
Drinking lactose-free milk can prevent the symptoms of lactose intolerance if you're one of the approximately 30 million Americans with lactose intolerance, according to MedlinePlus.


The most common symptoms include abdominal discomfort, including nausea, diarrhea, gas and bloating, which begin 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting lactose.


The incidence of lactose intolerance increases as you get older; it occurs most commonly in people of African-American, Asian, Mediterranean or Native American descent.


Some people can tolerate a small amount of lactose in their diet, while others can't. Lactose intolerance doesn't cause serious illness or have long-term health effects. Avoiding lactose or taking over-the-counter lactase when you eat dairy products is the only treatment necessary.
