Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at

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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Barry Callebaut claims to be the "world’s leading supplier of high-quality cocoa and chocolate product." That's quite a claim. Europeans know the company through its personal brands - Sarotti in Germany, Jacques in Belgium, and Alprose in Switzerland - but it has partnerships with chocolate companies all over the world. And it has chocolate museums in Belgium and Switzerland. Now that's dedication.

If you've wanted to learn more about chocolate, from its history, to manufacturing, to the many health claims being put forward today for chocolate, click over to the site's Chocophilia section.

There's also a large page of chocolate recipes. Most use at least butter if not other dairy products, so you will have to experiment with substitutes if you try them.
