Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at

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.

Sweet Freedom from Allergies

Sweet Freedom is a great name for a cookbook featuring recipes that

are appropriate for those with food sensitivities or allergies (such as lactose intolerance, allergy to casein, sensitivity to refined sugar); vegans; those on kosher diets; or moms who simply want to create healthy, all-natural desserts for their kids.

The cookbook, full name Sweet Freedom: Desserts You'll Love without Wheat, Eggs, Dairy or Refined Sugar, is by Ricki Heller. An article by in Canada's National Post by Meghan Telpner manages to misspell the book title in the headline. (Making Love in the Kitchen: Reading and... Baking: Sweet Freedome. Sigh. Please remember that editors, not writers, are responsible for headlines.)

The book's homepage is Diet, Dessert, and Dogs.
