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.

Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Cookbook

About two weeks ago I mentioned Alice Sherwood's new Allergy Free Cookbook.

CeCe Sullivan, of the Seattle Times food staff, just caught up with Sherwood's cookbook and added another book of interest, Susan O'Brien's Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Cooking: Over 200 Delicious Recipes to Help You Live a Healthier, Allergy-Free Life.

The book description for O'Brien reads:

With millions of people suffering from food allergies, obesity, and generally less-than-perfect health, the connection between how we feel and the food we eat has never been more apparent.

Now, in Gluten-free, Sugar-free Cooking, gourmet chef and food-allergy sufferer Susan O’Brien offers more than 200 great-tasting recipes — covering everything from breakfast to dessert — that are perfect for people with food allergies as well as for those who simply want to adopt a more healthy way of eating. Free of gluten, sugar, and usually dairy, these tasty dishes are also invaluable for people living with medical conditions such as candida, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, autism, and ADHD, who must avoid certain foods to better control their symptoms.

Complete with product sourcing information, substitute ingredients, dining out advice, and online resources, Gluten-free, Sugar-free Cooking makes eating healthfully and avoiding problematic foods easy and delicious.

It's available in both hardback and paperback editions. I hope to be adding it to my Milk-Free Bookstore on the Wheat and Gluten-Free Books page. There's been a glitch in posting new pages to my website, but I hope to have that straightened out very shortly.

Sullivan's article also lists several good resources for allergy information on the net. I've listed many of them before, but it's always good to have them in one place.
•Aaaai.org (American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology) has an archive of articles offering news and information regarding food allergies.

•Aafa.org (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America) supplies a number of links relating to food allergies.

•Foodallergytalk.com is an invaluable resource for sorting out the ingredients listed on labels that may pose a risk to allergy sufferers.

•Glutenfreegirl.com, written by local blogger Shauna James Ahern, is an entertaining and insightful look at living the good life without gluten. (Ahern's book, "Gluten-Free Girl: How I Found the Food That Loves Me Back ... & How You Can Too" will be published by Wiley in October.)

•Kidswithfoodallergies.org provides parents with support, resources and recipes to help their children live healthy, active lives.

•Mayoclinic.com supplies information and tools to help manage the symptoms of allergies.
