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.

Redwood Wholefood Company Named Best Vegan Company

In the first ever Vegan Environmental Awards, the UK firm Redwood Wholefood Company was named Best Vegan Company.

An article in the Northampton Chronicle and Echo said that:

The awards, organised by vegan company Yaoh, were designed to recognise the unique positive contribution of the vegan lifestyle to the environment by focusing attention on some of the stars from the vegan community.

Thousands of British vegans voted for their favorites in the competition.

Redwood won because:

The company’s aim throughout its ten-year history has been to create innovative and inspirational meat-free foods that reflect the principles of veganism – namely health, compassion towards animals and concern for the environment.

The entire range of Redwood products are healthy and suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those with dietary needs – be it religious or medical.

Every product is free from lactose, cholesterol, hydrogenated fats and artificial colours or preservatives.

Redwood Foods are also available in Spain and in Australia.

As I try to point out, vegan foods are perfect for those who are lactose intolerant or want or need to avoid dairy for any other reason.

I'd tell you who else won Vegan Environmental Awards, but even though the awards were given out as far back as June 10th, their website still hasn't been updated. [!] Can anyone explain this?
