In Russia, from 3 to 5% of school – age children have lactase deficiency - Sergey Simonenko
The expert said that in Russia, from 3 to 5% of school-age children have lactase deficiency.
Sergey Simonenko noted that this topic is very relevant for the modern market. Therefore, it is important to develop low-lactose and lactose-free products for children.
‘It should be noted that in Russia only a few manufacturers are engaged in the creation of such products for children. The Research Institute of Child nutrition also does this,’ the expert concluded.
