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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

More UK Free-From Foods Honoured

Good to hear that the UK is finally catching up with the States in foods that are milk and wheat-free.

Checkout Magazine reported on the latest to win honours for their foods.

Two companies in the food sector have been awarded Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.

Cumbrian family bakery, Bells of Lazonby, has won the Queen’s Award in the Innovation category for its gluten, wheat and dairy-free products produced under the Ok and Village bakery brands.

Bells’ innovation has centred on the production of its allergy-friendly bakery products. The company’s aim was to provide great tasting rather than clinical products, which would have a wide appeal in the growing health and diets food markets. The products were launched at IFE in 2003 and are now listed by Asda, Booths, Boots, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. Bells’ sales have grown to £2.5m and its workforce has expanded to 30 from nothing two and half years ago.

I remember when just finding a single lactose-free milk product was an issue.
