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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Damon's Grill Interactive Allergy Menu

Damon's Grill is a casual dining chain with over 80 locations, mostly in the Northeastern United States.

They just issued a press release about their new "interactive allergy information tool," which is on their website.

You can get their in several ways. Go to the Damon's website at and click on Our Menu, and then click on the "Click here for Food Allergy information" link in the lower left hand side of that page. Or click on the "Our Menu" link from any page on the Damon's website.

Or go directly to

Clicking on any box next to a menu item brings up information on the bottom of the page in which the potential allergens in that item are listed.

Allergens listed are Fish, Shellfish, Milk, Soy, Wheat, Eggs, MSG, Sulfites, and Tree Nuts.

The press release adds:

Before launching the allergy information page this month, a nutrition consultant analyzed the ingredients in nearly 250 Damon's appetizers, salads, salad dressings, soups, side items, entrees, sandwiches, kids' menu, beverages, condiments
and desserts.

"Few casual dining chains offer allergy sufferers and those with other dietary restrictions easy access to the information they need," said Carl Howard, president. "Damon's is taking the lead because our guests asked for the information, and we want to support their efforts to lead healthier lives."

I like that attitude, and I hope that Damon's soon comes to New York so I can check them out.
