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.

Nog It In A Non-Dairy Way

Oh, no! How could I have put off my annual holiday article on non-dairy egg nog? Oh, well, sometimes even Homer nogs.

As usual, Vitasoy has rolled out its Holly Nog for the season. Lactose-free, gluten-free and dairy-free, Holly Nog is soy-based and vegan.

Silk also puts out a seasonal Silk Nog which is similarly dairy and egg free, with soymilk, sugar and flavorings the only ingredients.

The VeggieBoards discuss the merits of Silk and Vitasoy and also offer some recipes for making your own vegan nogs.

For a more traditional nog aimed at those who are only lactose intolerant, Brenda at provides a recipe using eggs and Lactaid milk. Of course, any lactose-free milk will do.

(Lactaid itself introduced a seasonal Lactaid Egg Nog in 2005, but I can't find any evidence that it is being produced this year. Let me know if you see it in stores.)

Last, and very odd, is Rebecca's modification of a Cooking Light recipe to make a non-dairy, lactose-free Eggnog Cream Cheese Pie. Looks too advanced for me, but cooks out there should try it and dazzle their friends.
