Parmigian Cheese is the best digestible protein. Our digestive tract digests it within 45 minutes of eating. It is lactose free and has many minerals & vitamins. The white specs in the cheese are clusters of amino acids. It is a medium fat cheese and so easy to digest that it is given to babies and it is prescribed for children with gastro-intestinal problems.
Yogurt is easier to digest than regular milk, so if you're lactose intolerant but you want some calcium and protein, give it a try! Also, if you like milk but hate the tummy aches (and hate soy milk), try lactose-free milk. It's sweeter, tastes similar. I actually like it better (and no tummy aches)
