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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

The article on Frozen Treats from the Washington Post drew some feedback in the Post’s letter column.

Today’s paper has a letter from Matt Dombrowski listing some nondairy desserts that he’s found to be good.

As a lactose-intolerant ice cream and cold dessert fan, I enjoyed your column on Aug. 13 ( Sunday Shopper ). I, too, have tried many alternatives and concur with many of your reviews. However, there were four omissions that are my top choices for non-dairy alternatives. They are:

• Lactaid Scoopfuls, which comes in Double Chocolate Chip (my favorite), Classic Vanilla, Cappuccino Swirl, Creamy Butter Pecan and Mint Chocolate Chip.

Whole Fruit Sorbet, with flavors including Boysenberry, Lemon, Mango, Peach (my favorite), Raspberry, Strawberry and Tropical.

• Ben & Jerry's Strawberry Kiwi Swirl, Jamaican Me Crazy and Berried Treasure sorbets.
