As a leading innovation-driven company, Chi Limited has introduced a new product to the Hollandia Family – Hollandia Lactose-free easy-to-digest milk, Nigeria’s first ever Ready-to-Drink (RTD) lactose-free milk.
Research has shown that majority of Nigerians are lactose intolerant and are unable to digest lactose present in milk. This gives rise to symptoms varying from bloating to flatulence, nausea, cramps, diarrhoea, and stooling. Most consumers may not connect these symptoms with lactose intolerance since the awareness is low. For those who are aware, they may stop taking milk, thereby losing out on all the benefits of milk, such as calcium, proteins and vitamins.
As part of Chi Limited’s commitment to meet the dairy nutritional needs of consumers, Hollandia lactose-free easy-to-digest milk was launched. Rather than eliminating milk from their food, consumers can continue to use milk, while enjoying all the nutritional benefits it offers.
According to Chi Limited’s Managing Director, Mr. Deepanjan Roy, the availability of Hollandia lactose-free easy-to-digest milk means that all Nigerian consumers will now be able to experience a wholesome healthy experience.
“We are pleased to say that everyone can now enjoy the key nutrients found in milk that some would have otherwise missed out on. Hollandia lactose-free easy-to-digest milk delivers real dairy nutrition, and because it is 100% lactose-free, it is easy to digest for those with lactose sensitivities,” he stated.
Available in 1Ltr pack size, Hollandia lactose-free easy-to-digest milk can be purchased at Chi Shoppe, supermarkets & departmental stores, neighbourhood kiosks, and markets across Nigeria.
