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.

Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook

Claire Hopley in the Amherst Bulletin wrote about several new cookbooks that included a couple I thought I'd pass along.

One is Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook: A Seasonal, Vegetarian Cookbook, "by Shutesbury author and culinary teacher Leslie Cerier. ... [R]eaders will enthuse about a book that introduces an array of appetizing recipes that use grains that lack gluten: amaranth, buckwheat, corn, millet, oats, quinoa, rice, sorghum, teff, and wild rice."

Gluten-free is not the same as dairy-free, of course, but many people with celiac disease also develop lactose intolerance, so there is an overlap between our populations and usually an overlap in recipes.

Product Description
A gluten-free diet can help you feel more energetic, improve digestion, aid in weight loss, and dramatically improve the symptoms of many mental and physical health disorders. It's no wonder that more and more people, both with wheat allergies and without, are discovering the health benefits of going gluten-free.
