Smith’s, a leading brand of premium dairy products, is rolling out a line of high-quality, lactose-free milk in whole, 2% reduced fat and fat-free varieties.
Smith’s new lactose-free milk provides all of the same nutrients and vitamins that consumers expect in Smith’s regular milk, but is easier to digest, according to the Orrville, Ohio-based company. A natural enzyme is added to cow’s milk to remove lactose, resulting in a lactose- and gluten-free beverage that contains nine essential vitamins and nutrients; it also is kosher certified.
“We have a long history of listening to our customers; there is a growing lactose intolerance among consumers, which encouraged us to create this dairy option,” said Penny Baker, director of marketing for Smith’s. “Our new lactose-free milk has the same great taste our customers expect from Smith’s and allows everyone to love dairy again.”
Smith’s Lactose Free Milk is available in half-gallon cartons for a suggested retail price of $3.79-$3.99 wherever Smith’s brand products are sold.
