Based on what I understand one of the main reasons why Milk is not a preferential source of carbohydrates either during post workout and/or during a P+C meal is due to the fact that Lactose is half galactose and glucose. Galactose functions similarly to fructose in that it is stored preferentially in the liver. Am I right?
If that’s the case, what about lactose free milk? Since it’s lactose which contains galactose, does it stand to reason that if you get lactose free mlik you’ll be able to avoid storing much of the glycogen in the liver? Or is there something in lactose free milk that will end up doing the same thing? I looked over the ingredients for Lactaid fat and lactose free milk and noticed that it had something called lactase. I’m assuming it’s some sort of lactose substitute and am wordering if it too acts like galactose and fructose.
Thanks if advance.
