You can take two of the capsules, grind them up in a pestle or whatever method you have to grind them down to a fine powder, which is easy. Then take the powder and drop in a gallon of milk and shake. Give it 24 hours and you will have very cost effective lactose free milk. This is the same enzyme everyone uses to convert the lactose to glucose, just in a dry format. You can actually tell that the milk is a bit sweeter after 24 hours. This is much cheaper and easier to manage than the liquid drops others offer to do the same thing. Glucose strips show that it works well. This can save you hundreds of dollars over the course of a year.

I've been lactose intolerant for a long while, and have used several brands (both the name brand and generics) of non-chewable lactase pills with good success for foods like pizza and yogurt... until this brand. On multiple occasions, it has seemed that it does not work as well as the others. Now, everybody has opinions, so I went looking online to see if there was any objective data that supported this hypothesis, and sure enough, the folks at ConsumerLabs have actually tested various lactase supplements, and what they found, in part, is that though this brand does contain as much lactase activity as the label says, it is not "fast acting" in the sense that it takes the pill 27 minutes to dissolve in solution, versus 2 minutes for Equate (the Wal-Mart generic brand). So, I am sitting here farting (in spite of taking 5 of these pills with the slice-and-a-half of pizza I had for lunch) and planning a trip to Wal-Mart.

This Kirkland brand might work a little better if you chew it, but the label says to swallow whole, so who knows. It's not enough of a cost savings to screw with. I'm getting a brand that works for me.

Just as fast and potent as Lactaid, in convenient swallowable form, and cheaper. Each pill is individually sealed in foil (like Lactaid Fast Act does it). Kosher.

I'm mildly lactose-intolerant and regular dairy products would upset my stomach. Now I can drink normal milk again and don't notice a thing! These have the same ingredient as Lactaid brand so don't bother spending more money on the name brand.

I'll keep using this product because just one caplet is enough, so it's cheaper than others brands.
I highly recommend it.

I'll make this short and sweet.

This pill does prevent me from getting diarrhea after drinking milk or having cereal but the amount of gas I produce is still out of control. I'll put it this way. I ate two bowl of cereal before going to bed last night and ALL night I tooted soooo much and sooo hard that I woke up every time. Funny I know but you could imagine how your partner would feel about that sleeping next to you.

I think I may shift back to the Lactade milk I was previously drinking...no problem there, just don't like the fact they use rbst with their milk. :/

These work and they're cost-effective, but I enjoyed the option of chewing the Lactaid tablets and caplets (both are chewable) before swallowing. The Lactaid brand ones tasted mildly sweet like milk, they broke apart easy, and it made the process less pill/medicine-like. I don't like having to swallow pills before drinking milk in the morning.

Usually generic options are very similar to the dominant name-brand. But theses Kirkland tablets are very hard and taste like chalk. It made me wonder what the other, filler ingredients are that bind the tablet together. Because the tablet is mostly made of whatever that is, the enzyme is just a small part. Whatever the binder is tastes pretty bad.

I'd still recommend these for budgetary reasons, but it'd be great if Kirkland made them similarly palatable to the Lactaid brand.

So I love these over Lactaid pills first off. I have been lactose intolerant for probably 8 years now, and I still can't get over the fact that dairy is off limits. But these pills allow me to eat cheese, butter, some yogurts without having to visit the bathroom shortly after!

That being said, dairy affects people in different ways - some cheeses I have to use 2 of these. Can't do milk with this still, need more of these if I'm on an empty stomach, etc. But I highly recommend these to all of us who can't eat dairy without running the risk of being sick.
