Long-life lactose-free milk is exposed to challenges in relation to shelf-life, stability and quality, when stored unrefrigerated for a longer period, which is the case in many parts of the world. Researchers from Aarhus University are currently studying how so-called lactase enzymes – enzymes added to lactose-free UHT milk, in order for people suffering from lactose intolerance to be able to drink it – affect the milk, and if these can be improved.
