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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Draw A Soymilk Sun, Win Your School $1000

Over at I found a press release that turns out to be sunnier than most.

Stremicks Heritage Foods is relaunching it’s 8th continent Soymilk brand. The re-launch includes the debut of a new carton packing in the spring. To celebrate the event, the company is inviting children and their families to submit their artwork to be considered for the brand’s new packaging. All entries must be received by 11:59 pm ET June 12, 2010 to be considered in the contest. To submit your artwork for the competition, visit 100 winners will be recognized and awarded with $1,000 in art supplies. All submissions will be featured on the company’s website.

Stremicks Heritage Foods™ (Heritage), founded in 1990, manufactures, sells and distributes value-added, specialty beverage products on a regional and national scale. Headquartered in Santa Ana, Calif., the company operates in Santa Ana, Riverside and Ontario, Calif.; Cedar City, Utah; Joplin, Missouri and Mexicali, Mexico. Heritage owns, licenses and co-packs well recognized brands such as Heritage Organic Milk, Heritage Organic Milk with Omega-3 DHA, 8th Continent Soymilk, Kerns Beverages, Heritage Disney Toy Story Chocolate Milk, Lactaid Refrigerated, Rice Dream, Soy Dream, Soup Broths, Protein Drinks & Sports Nutrition Beverages.

If you visit the site, you'll have to temporarily allow pop-ups. But that takes you to a page on which your children can paint right on screen - with a mouse, of course - to create a sun logo for the new packaging. That painting can be uploaded directly from that page as well. Winning may allow a school to receive up to $1000 for its art program. Be sure to click on the Terms and Condition link at the bottom of the page for the full, long, list of rules and caveats.
