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.

Pennymint Patties Wins Allergy Free Recipe Contest, an online store offering selections of allergen free foods, held a recipe contest last month. The Grand Prize winning submission was "Pennymint Patties" by Lori Zook of Pennsylvania.

"My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts and tree nuts. I have always tried to come up with recipes for the foods she saw and wanted to eat. One day Jazlyn asked my mom what her favorite candy was and she said York Peppermint Patties. Jazlyn adores my mom and wanted to try the candy. Since the store bought version was unsafe, I came up with this amazingly easy recipe that tastes just like the original. I've called them Pennymint Patties because my mom's name is Penny. Since I have developed this recipe, my mom no longer eats the original candy, she just asks me to make another batch of these for her".

You can find links to Pennymint Patties and the other prize-winning recipes on the Allergy and Me recipe contest page.
