What is the difference between lactose intolerance and milk allergy?

Lactose intolerance is not the same as being allergic to milk, dairy products, or dairy foods. People with milk allergies are allergic to the proteins in milk, whereas people who are lactose intolerant do not have enough lactase enzyme to break down the main sugar in milk.5
