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.

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.
