Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Ethical Nondairy

A British magazine called Ethical Consumer has firm ideas on what makes for good products.

At their web site, the company says:

Ethical Consumer magazine publishes buyer's guides designed to help you find the products which best fit with your own values.

  • Read the truth about the social and environmental records of the companies behind the brands you buy

  • Learn about alternative products and support smaller, more ethical companies

I've never seen the magazine, but apparently its September-October 2006 issue includes their special "Ethiscore ethical rating tables for non-dairy milk." The Utne Reader magazine reports that the list includes familiar U.S. brands.

If any British readers find the magazine, let me know what the ratings are. And what an Ethiscore is.
