    Lactose

    Why isn't lactose included? How does it compare to glucose and fructose?

    Not included because if you're strictly Primal you eat no dairy or low dairy. Butter and raw full-fat cheese are preferred choices and both are very low in lactose.

    Lactose is 50:50 glucose:galactose.

    Galactose produces a bigger insulin spike than glucose. Hence lactose is best avoided for anyone who is insulin resistant.

    For those who are insulin sensitive, milk and yoghurt are excellent post-workout foods, as they promote muscle growth and repair.
