South African all round entertainer, Khanyi Mbau has recently shared her story about being lactose intolerant.
That means that she ducks all things diary, including milk. Anyone that has closely followed Khanyi, must have easily picked up that she is an open book, which leaves us wondering exactly when did her body start repulsing against diary intakes, as we can assume that she would shared this interesting fact about herself.
Taking to Instagram, Khanyi Mbau recorded a video whereby many of her followers were surprised to learn about the star's allergy.
In the video, the mother of one said the following: "Do you know sometimes I just wish I could have milk in my coffee, but I can’t because I am lactose intolerant,how many of you suffer from the same thing where you can’t have any diary treats like ice-cream milk tart and all these delectables that are just full of these nice diary tastes?”
So what exactly is lactose intolerant?, Well the actress and producer explained in the simplest form: "A few facts on Lactose: • What is lactose intolerance?
Lactose intolerance occurs when a body cannot breakdown and absorbs lactose. It’s caused by enzyme called lactase."
She continued to add: "I have been living with this and it’s always very hard to enjoy some of my favourite deserts and dairy products. A total shlep, believe me!!!!"
Another firm favourite in these streets, Bonang Matheba is also in the same WhatsApp group as Khanyi, as she has previously mentioned that she is lactose intolerant, with regards to Bonang, it would probably come as no surprise because she has been quite vocal about her struggle with diary products.
Though we don't know whether it is an allergy or a move to a healthier body, we are here for all things healthy eating.
