Side effects of frothy milk in Starbucks lattes?

Does anyone else, occasionally, get too much gas or upset stomach (not quite diarrhea, but close) after having having Starbucks lattes with regular milk?

I get it occasionally, my teenage daughter does, and know of another close friend (can't ask too many people) - we are all brown!

I love working in sbuck when I get the opportunity but side effect of this frothy milk minimizes my drink choices and visits.

    Lactose intolerance perhaps?

      You can develop lactose intolerance later in life especially if you moved to usa from another country, I have seen this a lot, there's something different about the dairy here.

      Americano and then just adding milk seems to be the answer but reduces the temperature :(

      Pretty sure it's possible to develop lactose intolerance later.

    I should have said this side effect happens sometimes only. Also it happens with Macha Green tea lattes.

    I do have acid related issues, but my daughter and the other friend I mentioned doesnt have those issues.

    I love Almond and Soy milk, but dont like in Lattes!

    Americano + Milk is the temp solution.

      They might use a different brand of milk. Lactose percentage varies from brand to brand and it may be just enough to make a difference for you. For example , I can eat heavy cream with no problems, but a glass of fancy, cows running around the pasture type fancy milk affects me badly. A glass of cheap milk doesn’t.

    This happens to me with the frappacinos. I don't know if that one store isn't clean or what. But the other drinks at that store are ok.

    It is probably lactose problem... Here is how mine started effecting me. Coffee with milk in it started making my stomach hurt a little. Really good expensive cheese didn't really hurt. Somewhat nice cheese hurt A LOT stomach would get super bloated. And really cheap fake cheese didn't really bother me. Mine continues to get worse so I gvae up on dairy. I put soy in my Starbucks coffee now. I get a white mocha with soy and it taste like a comsic brownie. Learn to use sugar and creamer without dairy

    Milk and coffee might be a bad combination. Hence not working out. Listen to what people are saying above.
