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.

Vegan Ice Cream Shop

Lots of vegan ice cream substitutes have entered the market. I recently wrote about Turtle Mountain's coconut milk froze dessert product line, and that's certainly not the first or only post I could mention.

But a whole shop devoted to nothing but vegan "ice creams"? That's something you won't see in too many places outside such incredibly hit depots of consumering as New York Lower East Side.

Florence Fabricant wrote about it in The New York Times.

Malcolm Stogo has a job most people would envy: he’s an ice cream consultant. Now his name is on a vegan ice cream shop in the East Village.

Rob Sedgwick, an actor, owns it with Steve Horn, a restaurateur.

Ice creams made from soy milk, nut milks and coconut milk are made by Mr. Horn according to Mr. Stogo’s formulas. The smooth, creamy, gelato-style ice creams, all sweetened with agave, come in a dozen flavors. Mango, peach and mixed berry would probably please lovers of traditional high-fat ice cream. ...

Stogo is at 159 Second Avenue (the entrance is on East 10th Street), (212) 677-2301.

Prices range up to $6.25 for a cup. Toppings are extra. Of course, if you have to ask how much it is...
