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.

Multiple Allergy Cookbook

The Dairy-free &/or Wheat-free &/or Soya-free BUT Always Totally Nut-free Family Cookbook by Clare Constant and Suzanne Wood was published last month by Strategic Business Transformation Ltd. press. (Strategic Business Transformation press?)

It's an expensive paperback with a $30.00 list price while being only 264 pages. But it appears to have a unique slant.

Book Description
At last an easy-to-use restricted diet cookbook with 100+delicious recipes that everyone in your family can enjoy whether it's dairy &/or wheat &/or soya and nuts that individual members have to avoid. The book's 'every recipe for everyone' system allows you to choose how to cook each recipe safely for your family - with or without dairy, wheat or soya, but always completely nut-free and always using readily available supermarket ingredients. You'll be spoilt for choice. Not only are our 100+ easy-to-follow recipes delicious but we also suggest numerous tasty flavour variations. Recipes include: crispy chicken bites, fishcakes, pizzas, traditional roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, home-made pasta, gooey chocolate and pear pancakes, lemon tart, quick snacks, lunch-box fillers, tea time treats such as scones, biscuits, muffins and the all-important chocolate birthday cake. . Easy-to-follow, safe and delicious recipes . Information about dairy, wheat, soya and nuts . Clear explanations of food allergy and intolerance . Discussion of diseases linked to these key ingredients . Advice on making sure a restricted diet is healthy . Busy cook's shopping and cooking tips . Separate baby and toddler recipe sections . Recipes that children on restricted diets can learn to cook for themselves Bestselling educational writer Clare Constant has teamed up with former Home Economist of the Year and Cordon Bleu trained Suzanne Wood to produce this Family Cookbook. 'My toddler, Sophie, is allergic to dairy, wheat, soya, fish and nuts. When she was diagnosed I longed for a cookbook to help her thrive and me, a working mum, to survive. There wasn't one, so I wrote one.' Clare Constant 'We have food allergies in our family but my kids demand to be fed "normal food" like their school friends - so I developed these recipes to make sure they can. Now, when their mates come home for tea, they can't tell the difference!' Suzanne Wood '... the author's offer very practical, ingenious and creative solutions for the preparation of nutritious, healthy and tasty meals, while staying away from the various types of foods that allergic members of the family should avoid.' Dr Diab F Haddad MD MRCPCH Consultant Paediatrician St Peter's Hospital, Surrey.

From the description, my guess is that this is a British cookbook, which may be useful to the many Brits for whom getting special diet foods is not as easy as it is for North Americans.
