Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at

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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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.

SteriMax's Dairy Free Brand Lactase Pills

SteriMax Inc., a Canadian pharmaceutical firm, makes Dairy Free lactase enzyme, in regular strength - 3000 FCC units - and extra strength - 4500 FCC units.

Each white, round, biconvex tablet contains 3000 FCC lactase units of ß-D-galactosidase derived from Aspergillus oryzae Non-medicinal ingredients: cellulose, colloidal silicon dioxide, povidone and magnesium stearate Store at room temperature, away from heat Available in bottles of 100

Lactase Enzyme is for you when you suffer from GAS, CRAMPS, BLOATING, or DIARRHEA caused by milk or dairy products

Dairy Free is certified Kosher
Dairy Free is listed on the Quebec Formulary

Povidone is something most of you would probably not recognize. It is a synthetic polymer used as a dispersing and suspending agent. I found on Wikipedia that:
references state that as polyvinyl pyrrolidone and its derivatives are fully from mineral synthetic origin. Therefore, its use in the production should not be a problem for vegans.

The Extra Strength tablets are available only in bottles of 80.

Dairy Free Lactase Enzyme is available though a number of online Canadian suppliers. Some of them may ship to the U.S.
