Frozen yogurt can be included in the diet.

Clients who are lactose intolerant can digest frozen yogurt. Yogurt products are formed by bacterial action. and this action assists in the digestion of lactose. The freezing process further stops bacterial action so that limited lactase activity remains. Option 1 is incorrect; elimination of all dairy products can lead to significant clinical deficiencies of other nutrients. Option 3 is incorrect because drinking milk on an empty stomach can exacerbate clinical symptoms. Drinking milk with a meal may benefit the client because other foods. (especially fat) may decrease transit time and allow for increased lactase activity. Option 4 is incorrect because although individual tolerance should be acknowledged. spreading out the use of known dairy products will usually exacerbate clinical symptoms.
