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.

Lisanatti Foods Cheese Alternatives

I went shopping today at a natural foods store, and found some brands that are new to me.

The first is Lisanatti Foods.

Lisanatti® Foods, family owned and operated in Oregon since 1977, produces several varieties of high quality cheese alternatives: THE ORIGINAL Almond®, Senora Lupe®, PREMIUM Soy-Sation®, RiceCheeze®, and MUNCHEEZE® Snack Sticks. We have been using organic and non-GMO ingredients for many years and source the finest ingredients commercially available.

Lisanatti® cheese alternatives are easy to use in favorite recipes as a cholesterol-free, gluten-free substitute for traditional dairy cheese. For dietary changes to improve health, our vegetarian cheese alternatives contain no Trans fats or saturated fats, are low in sodium and good sources of calcium and protein.

Let's break those down into flavors:

The Original ALMOND
Cheddar Style Chunks
Mozzarella Style Chunks
Garlic-Herb Style Chunks
Jalapeno Jack Style Chunks

SoySation® Chunks
SoySation® Slices
SoySation® Shreds

RiceCheeze® Cheddar Style Chunks
RiceCheeze® Mozzarella Style Chunks
RiceCheeze® Pepper Jack Style Chunks
MUNCHEEZE™ Mozzarella Style Snack Sticks
MUNCHEEZE™ American Style Snack Sticks

Senora Lupe (soy-based)
Chipotle Style Chunks
Jalapeno Mild Style Chunks
Manchego Style Chunks
Quesadilla Style Chunks

All the different styles and flavors appear to contain the milk protein casein. That makes them melt like regular cheese but are not recommend for people with milk protein allergies, though they are find for those of us with lactose intolerance and for vegetarians (but not vegans).
