Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

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.

Sorrento Lactose Free String Cheese

I received an email from Nicole S. telling me that Sorrento string cheese was lactose free. Their website doesn't confirm this, but before I could go any further the enterprising Nicole contacted the company and received this excellent response.

String cheese is made when a special culture changes the milk sugar into lactic acid, however there is some residual lactose left.

Our lactose free string cheese has a special added enzyme that further breaks down the residual lactose into two other easily digested sugars- galactose and glucose. Thus lactose is eliminated!

I couldn't find this cheese any longer in my area so I wrote the company and they wrote me back.


Thank you for your interest in our products. Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued.
