Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or 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.

Reduced Lactose Milk Hits the U.K.

I can't believe it hasn't happened before this - and please correct me if I'm wrong - but lactose intolerant consumers had no equivalent to the reduced-lactose milk pioneered by Lactaid (and copied by many others) here in the U.S. and in Canada.

But Arla Foods has announced Lactofree, which it calls "a UK first."

Lactofree is produced by:

putting semi-skimmed cows milk through a filtration process and adding a lactase enzyme to ensure 99.95% of the lactose is removed.

Lactofree is already in stores, including Sainsbury's and possibly Tesco.
