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.

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.
