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.

OmnigestEZ, A Lactase Pill

Saw this on the shelves of my local supermarket. OmnigestEZ claims to be an all-around digestive of "most all types of food: fats, protein, starch and carbohydrates, vegetables and dairy."

How does it do this? With a mix of several digestive enzymes: acid protease, amylase, cellulase, glucoamylase, lipase, and nutral protease in addition to lactase.

There are many such pills on the market, but few contain what I consider to be a useful amount of lactase. OmnigestEZ does, with 3000 FCC units, the same as most basic (not ultra) lactase pills. That justifies this statement on their FAQs.

Q: I am lactose intolerant; will OMNIGEST EZ help me?

A: Yes. OMNIGEST EZ contains the right amount of the enzyme lactase to aid in the digestion of typical meals containing dairy products.
