The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

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.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Catsip for Cats

A syndicated article by Dr. Marty Becker, McClatchy-Tribune reminded me of a product I haven't been reminded about in years.

CatSip is a lactose-free lowfat milk for cats, although dogs can have it as well. It's made by AKPharma, run by Alan Kligerman, the man who created Lactaid. They remove the lactose with the lactase enzyme, just like regular lactose-free milk for humans.

Dr. Becker wrote:

CatSip also has the amino acid Taurine added which is essential to healthy feline hearts and eyes. Once opened, the product (which is also dog approved) must be refrigerated to last as long as regular milk.

Go to the CatSip home page for more information.

Or you can reach their customer service hotline at 1-800-994-4711 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST Monday-Friday, or email them at
