The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at www.stevecarper.com/li 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 Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com 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.

Lactose-Free Milk Powder and Butter from Valio


Valio, the big Finnish dairy company, has announced a new "Zero Lactose" line of ingredients. From the press release:

Valio, the leading Finnish dairy company, now offers lactose free ingredients for sale worldwide.

Valio's new Zero Lactose range of ingredients includes skimmed milk powder and butter, which are lactose free. Zero Lactose ingredients are ideal for the production of lactose free products by bakeries, confectionaries, dairy companies and other industries that rely on dairy products as ingredients. By using Valio Zero Lactose ingredients these companies can expand their offering and sell products that appeal to lactose intolerant customers as well.

In addition, Valio's lactose free technology is now more widely available for licensing, worldwide. Valio's lactose free technology produces a milk drink that contains less than 0.01% lactose and still tastes exactly like fresh milk. Valio's lactose free products have been hugely popular in Finland, bringing new growth to the milk market. Lactose free products using Valio's technology have also been successfully launched in Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, South Korea and Belgium.

These are the first true lactose-free milk powders and butters that I am aware of anywhere in the world. A great advance for lactose-free baking.

Now let's hope that the products soon come to the U.S. and to retail stores.

None of the Valio dried milk lactose-free products are sold directly to the public in the U.S.

However, I've found this English-language site that talks about online purchasing. Lactose free non fat dried milk powder 400 g

I guarantee nothing, but that's the place to try.
