Dairy products are a good source of calcium, vitamin D, and protein, which are important for bone health, muscle function, and overall health.

The most common types of dairy products include milk, cheese and butter.

Lactose intolerance, which occurs when the body has difficulty digesting lactose (the sugar found in milk), affects a significant percentage of the population.
Dairy products are produced by cows, goats, sheep, and other mammals.

In some cultures, dairy products such as yogurt and kefir are thought to have probiotic properties that can promote gut health.
