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.

Baby Formula Comparison Charts

There is no one right way to imitate mother's milk in a baby formula. And that's not even looking at the fundamental question of whether it is to be cow's milk-based, soy-based, or based on hydrolyzed proteins. A multitude of nutrients can be added and those in a variety of portions and amounts. The complexities are enormous and each family has to decide for themselves which combination works best for their child, and for their budget.

The Nature's One firm makes baby formulas. I don't know anything about them; this is not a recommendation or endorsement, nor do I have anything against them.

What I can say is that they feature a nutritional comparison page that offers charts in Abode's .pdf format that compare their formulas' nutrient composition against a number of other brand name formulas in the categories of dairy, soy, and organic formulas and oral electrolytes.

The charts look to be both comprehensive and informative. It may be useful to print them out and study them for guidance when you look into the question of formulas for your baby.
