The creator of Prelief, Lactaid & Beano

AkPharma Inc. makes Prelief® dietary supplement as well as the pet product, CatSip® lactose free milk for cats and dogs. The company was founded in 1957 by CEO, Alan E. Kligerman and has modified its products over the years to stay up with, and sometimes create, new technologies. This is the company that brought you Lactaid® Milk, purchased from AkPharma in 1991 by J & J, now the world leader in lactose-reduced foods and lactase OTC dietary supplements. AkPharma Inc. is the marketer of the OTC dietary supplement, Prelief®. Over the years AkPharma and its predecessor companies introduced the first name brand low sugar ice cream, SugarLo®, the first lactose-reduced line of dairy products, Lactaid®, and the famous tablets that let you eat beans and vegetables without distress, Beano®.

In 1990, Mr. Kligerman developed and patented Beano®, that fabulous enzyme for better digestion of numerous vegetables. The Beano brand now belongs to GlaxoSmithKline. Prelief, AkPharma's newest development, is a dietary supplement that takes the acid out of provocative foods. Many people are highly sensitive to food acid and for some, various foods can cause occasional heartburn. For others the unsuspected acid in foods can exacerbate urinary problems or bowel distress. Prelief is a safe, effective over-the-counter product that can help you stay comfortable. AkPharma is dedicated to the idea of creating products to help you comfortably maintain your health and an active life, with greater food tolerance and fewer drugs.
