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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Tasti D-Lite Frozen Dessert

That killer heat wave may have broken, but summer's a long way from over.

Want something cold? How about Tasti D-Lite frozen dessert. It's not frozen yogurt and it's not ice cream. It is dairy-based, though, using non-fat milk. All of their more than 100 flavors are therefore low-fat.

Although they use sugar instead of artificial sweeteners, Tasti D-Lite is fairly low calorie, between 11 and 17 calories per fluid ounce, depending on the flavor. All the flavors are Kosher-certified. And anything with peanut butter is a favorite among the flavors.

That's all good news. Now here's something even better: because it adds lactase to its non-fat milk it claims to have "at least 25% less lactose than the leading soft-serve ice cream."

Tasti D-Lite is found mostly in the New York metro areas, but now has locations in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, and Texas, as well as Syracuse and Ithaca in upstate New York.

Tasti D-Lite is not for vegans or those with dairy protein allergies, obviously, but it sounds like a fine alternative for those of us who are mildly lactose intolerant.
