It is now well known that human small intestinal lactase activity persists into adult life in some individuals and not in others, and that the frequencies of these two phenotypes differ in different human populations. The first section of this book discusses the associated nutritional problems and the possible modifications which would make milk suitable for consumption during different periods of human life. The second section deals exclusively with adult-type hypolactasia, the most common form of genetically-determined food intolerance. The text provides research results on the cellular and molecular basis of this hereditary condition. The papers presented in the final section illustrate current efforts to define the regulatory mechanisms that account for the decline of intestinal lactase activity in adult life.
