I went to see a nutritionist for my DD, and she told me the only thing that she was missing from drinking whole milk was Calcium and Vitamin D.
At one point she suggested that I give my daughter Calcium enriched Orange Juice. Then I told her I don't think it would work because it contains calcium lactate. She answered "no, it should be fine, it's not milk protein, it's milk sugar". :?

With my baby being ana to dairy, sugar or protein doesn't make a difference to me, it's not touching her mouth at all, but am I right to think this, or am I overreacting?

I was also told that calcium lactate does not contain milk protein. I researched it online and found that to be true. I give my son calcium enriched orange juice with calcium lactate and he has never reacted to it.

It's not derived from milk, but I am not sure what she meant by a milk sugar. Maybe she was confused with the lactate, part. Just in case, though, hopefully someone else will pipe in. I'm quite certain, though

No worries about the juice as far as I know calcium lactate is safe. I too am somewhat confused about what the nutritionist meant about milk sugar .
Good luck

The Tropicana with Calcium juice that we buy has calcium citrate in it - and we have had no problems.

Those "calcium enriched" juices and beverages can be tricky though - some of them contain actual milk! So you do have to check the labels.
