How to use Lea Gogo's lactase supplements
Updated: Feb 6
Lea Gogo's tablets contain 12,500FCC, which stands for Food Chemical Codex. The FCC tells you how much lactose can be broken down. In our case 12,500FCC can break down approximately12,5g of lactose.
But how much lactose is contained in food?
Here are a few examples:
A glass of milk (250 g) contains around 15 g of lactose.
Chocolate (100 g) has around 10 g of lactose.
Milkpowder (100 g) that can be contained in small quantities in ready meals, sausages or medicines has around 50 g of lactose.
It's fair to say that a single tablet of Lea Gogo will cover you in almost any situation. If you're in doubt, don't be afraid to take more. Any lactase that is not needed by your intestines within a few hours will be excreted naturally and without any harm. However, do not exceed 10 a day.
It's important to note that every body works differently and every person produces more or less lactase. You might find that you can digest small amounts of lactose just fine and only need a Lea Gogo supplement when having a more important amount of lactose, such as a hot chocolate.
The lactase needs to be taken just before starting to eat. You can consume dairy for 30 - 45 minutes after taking your first tablet. If you eat for longer than that you might want to take another tablet.
Lea Gogo is safe to use at any age.
It's safe to use when pregnant or while nursing, as it is an enzyme produced by your body.
If you are unsure, just speak to your GP about it and get medical advice.
You can take your Lea Gogo tablets with you in your purse. Thanks to its packaging it is protected from direct sunlight. Make sure to keep it dry.
