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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

There are more non-dairy and lactose-reduced summer frozen treats out there than I can get to. Fortunately, the Washington Post has a nice article comparing and taste-testing a whole range of them.

Breyer's Lactose-Free Natural Vanilla ice cream comes out on top, averaging 4.5 stars, mainly because it's, well, ice cream. Real ice cream with lactase added. This is great for those with lactose intolerance: not-so-good for vegans or those with dairy allergies.

So check out Soy Delicious Purely Decadent soy-based non-dairy frozen dessert, average rating: 3.5 stars; Rice Dream brown rice-based frozen dessert, average rating: 2.5 stars; and Tofutti Milk Free Premium Frozen Dessert, also soy-based, average rating 2.5 stars.

And then there is also LaLoo's Goat's Milk Ice Cream. This again is real ice cream, nothing reduced. It claims to be low-lactose, but I don't know what they base that on. Goat's milk has the same amount of lactose as cow's milk. Those with cow's milk protein allergies may be able to have this safely, because goat's milk has a different set of proteins than cow's milk, but test it first to see if it affects you.
