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.

Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free Cookbook

I mentioned Jean Duane in Jean Duane GFCF Videos, where I said that her cooking instructions were probably more valuable than the advocacy of a GFCF diet to those who may not absolutely require it.

Duane now has a cookbook out, Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free Cookbook, which I hope concentrates on the recipes. From the press release:

Bake Deliciously! has over 150 mouth-watering easy-to-follow recipes completed in five or less steps. The cookbook with beautiful color photos will be welcomed by those with Celiac Disease, gluten intolerance, dairy allergies or intolerance, Autism, ADD, ADHD, Crohn's Disease, IBS or Aspergers. It contains a lot of useful reference information for the newly diagnosed, as well as for diet veterans. ...

Jean Duane, Alternative Cook loves cooking deliciously, even when food allergies or health conditions require cooking "without". She maintains a gluten-free, dairy-free, low cholesterol diet, and has been developing recipes for 20 years. Her passion for cooking, combined with her professional training has enabled her to create a series of full-length cooking DVDs, video streams and the Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free cookbook. Ms. Duane is a prolific writer and national presenter on alternative cooking and baking. She appears on multiple TV segments on Comcast Video On Demand and PBS's Life Wise series.

You can watch Duane's videos and get more cooking instructions at her website,

Carol Moore, of the Galesburg Register-Mail brought to my attention that this cookbook is more than what it seemed from the press release. It is intended to be wonderfully adaptable.
With helpful instructions in Duane’s book, she gives you substitutions for cow’s milk, wheat flour, gluten-free flour substitutions, starch, egg, liquids, butter, sugar, nuts and seeds, tofu and soy and oils. General guidelines and baking tips help you along, step by step.

One of the book’s more exciting features is how to help you convert some of your favorite standard recipes or family favorites

I've always contended that knowing how to substitute and adapt your everyday favorite recipes is far more valuable to most people embarking on a special foods diet that having to learn bunches of new recipes from scratch. If that's what Duane does, then I'm all for it.
