Imagine working for an ice cream company for the better part of your life and never being able to enjoy a cone or dish without discomfort. John Rogers, direct-store-delivery leader with 40 years of service at Perry's Ice Cream, Akron, N.Y., has struggled with lactose intolerance for the past 30 years.
"I love ice cream, the problem is, ice cream doesn't love me," he says.
That’s why Perry's created lactose-free vanilla ice cream. After the mix is created, Perry's adds a lactase enzyme that breaks down the lactose over 48 hours.
