Lactase is an enzyme produced in the digestive system of humans. Lactase is essential to the complete digestion of whole milk. Lactase breaks down lactose, a simple sugar which gives milk its sweetness. Lacking lactase, a person consuming dairy products may experience the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Lactase is added to milk to produce "lactose-free" milk products.
