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.

Dietitian Sylvia Melendez-Klinger Spanish Video on a Lactose-Free Holiday

Lactaid, which has pitched its lactose-free milks to the African-Americana and Latino communities regularly in the past, has a new pitch to the Spanish-speaking segment of the market.

In a press release that appears in both English and Spanish versions, Sylvia Melendez-Klinger, a registered dietitian and certified personal trainer as well as founder of Hispanic Food Communications, gives tips for a high-calcium, lactose-free holiday season in a Spanish-language video.

Some tips in English:

•Include dark leafy greens such as kale and mustard, collard, broccoli and turnip greens or beans into your favorite, traditional dishes. These foods are not only good sources of calcium, but also low in fat.

•To boost your calcium intake, use canned fish such as salmon, in festive salads or pastas.
