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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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.

Lactase Drops

For reasons that passeth understanding, U.S. consumers cannot purchase lactase drops any longer.

The drops are still available in Canada and those in the U.S. can easily purchase them by mail.

I've had instructions for doing so on my website for several years on my Lactase Drops page.

Gelda Scientific has long gone out of its way to make sure that U.S. consumers can get the drops from them. Here's what their Lacteeze drops page has to say:

By using the Lacteeze Enzyme Drops as directed the lactose intolerant person can drink milk or other fluid milk products without suffering from gas, bloating or diarrhea.

Lacteeze Lactase drops are very convenient to use. Just add 5 drops to 1 litre or 1 quart of milk or other fluid milk products, mix and leave in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This will convert 70-80% of the lactose in the dairy product. If symptoms of lactose intolerance persist, refrigerate for additional 24 hrs (total of 48 hours) or increase the dose to 8-10 drops. This will convert at least 90% of the lactose. To convert lactose in breast milk add 2 drops per 100 ml of breast milk and store in fridge for 12 hours. If symptoms still persist please consult your doctor.

May be used to reduce lactose in fresh milk, reconstituted milk, canned condensed milk, creams, chocolate milk and any other fluid milk products.

Product Shelf Life: Shelf life of the product is 12-15 months at room temperature from the date of manufacturing. If the product is kept refrigerated upon receipt you can extend the shelf life by additional 6 months.

I received an email today from Arvind Gelda reminding me that I had let my webpage get out of date by not updating the prices. To see their current pricing go to the Gelda order page.
