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.

Droppa and Droppa Expand Through Bread Factory

Droppa and Droppa started their gluten- and dairy-free baking business in the traditional way, because Joslyn Droppa had coeliac disease. They wanted to do food that was so fresh it didn't even have the presevatives and additives that some people are sensitive to. Their little business is based in Bideford, North Devon, in the U.K.

They're getting bigger, though. The industry newsletter Conveying News reported that:

Droppa & Droppa has agreed a deal to supply its range of products to The Bread Factory.

Droppa & Droppa make a range of 'free-from' goods including gluten, wheat and dairy-free breads which will be provided to London-based The Bread Factory's customers, reports

The move will increase the production of specialist breads – news which will be welcomed by those in the baking industry.

Jocelyn Droppa, joint-owner of the company, expressed her belief that the deal would help those suffering from allergies to enjoy a wider range of food.

"By supplying The Bread Factory we hope that coeliacs and those who are wheat and/or dairy intolerant can enjoy good baked goods as much as the next person," she told the website.

The Bread factory has six retail shops in London, operating under the Gail's chain, and supplies goods to several of the capital's top restaurants and hotels.
