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.

Cherrybrook Kitchen Cookies

"Launched in 2004, Cherrybrook Kitchen has quickly become one of the leading brands that address the needs of people with food allergies. All Cherrybrook Kitchen products are peanut-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free. In addition, the company makes products that are also wheat free and gluten free."

That's from the press release announcing that Cherrybrook Kitchens is making an Arthur Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. Arthur is the PBS character.

Marc Brown, the creator of Arthur, addressed food allergies in during the 2007 PBS season. In the episode, titled "Binky Goes Nuts", Arthur's friend Binky discovers that he is allergic to peanuts. The episode addresses many of the fears, questions, and concerns that children with food allergies and their parents have when newly diagnosed. ...

The product is peanut-, dairy-, nut- and egg-free and will include an original story about Binky's food allergies. In addition, the cookie mix is all natural, kosher certified and vegan. Available now in stores where other Cherrybrook Kitchen products are sold, the product has a suggested retail of $4.99.

The simple truth is that I find many topics to post on by using Google news. Both articles you mention were found that way. I promise you that I did not take them from your blog.

It's inevitable that in the small dairy-free world that we'll wind up posting on the same products. I'm sure each of us has our own separate takes on these subjects, as well as different readers.

If we both happen to write on the same product that just just gets the word out to more people.
