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.

FAAN College Network

The always-busy, coming-up-with-new-sites, allergy organization FAAN (the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) has yet another one, the Food College Network.

And that is? The Food Safety News said:

The FAAN College Network is a website that provides college-related food allergy resources for college students and parents. The network provides a searchable database of over 40 colleges and universities with the contact information for food allergy representatives on each campus as well as what steps the schools have taken to accommodate students.

FAAN also provides a list of guidelines for schools to follow in accommodating students with food allergies.

In addition to joining the FAAN College Network, some Colleges and Universities have begun posting more detailed labels near food in the dining halls. Signage in these dining halls can include anything from pointing out common allergens to full ingredient lists. Some schools even offer convenient frozen meals and special items such as gluten-free bread to make things easier for students.

Their FAQ Page is a good place for college-bound students to start.
