Hello. Thank you for coming to JustAnswer with your question, and welcome.


Lactalbumin is a milk protein, so this would include all milk products and foods containing milk or milk products.


In addition, you need to check labels of pre-made foods you buy (such as bread) for the addition of milk products or milk proteins. Look for these ingredients on the label:


---lactalbumin phosphate,


---casein or sodium caseinate,

---lactose (milk sugar)


Lactose intolerance would be a bit different than a true milk allergy. Lactose intolerance would give you the digestive discomfort; whereas a milk allergy may give you a more systemic (whole body) allergic response (examples would be wheezing, skin rashes, headache) as well.


You may have both. People who have food allergies many times will have several.
