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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Tofutti Helps Comedy Cures

Tofutti is one of the oldest brands of milk alternative products, with a line of ice cream, cream cheese, hard cheese, and sour cheese substitutes, and even pizza and blintzes. All of Tofutti's foods use soy as a base and are Kosher pareve, completely dairy free. (Some of their entrées and cookies use egg whites, so those aren't vegan, but all the milk alternatives are.) Tofutti was one of the first foods I discovered when I learned I was lactose-intolerant.

Apparently you can do well by doing good. An article at reported that they had a 4% rise in net sales and a whopping 75% rise in net income in 2006.

I took a look at their web site and found that Tofutti is involved in a worthy, kid-oriented project.

Tofutti KIDS dessert bars pair Tofutti Premium Orange, Lime and Strawberry with a smooth, milk-free vanilla center. But wait, there's more:

Tofutti Brands joined hands with The Comedy Cures Foundation to create Tofutti KIDS dessert bars. The delicious pairing of Tofutti Premium Orange, Lime and Strawberry with a smooth, milk-free vanilla center will have your kids smiling. And 2% of all sales will benefit The Comedy Cures Foundation, founded by Saranne Rothberg and her young daughter.

Comedy Cures brings joy, through comedy, to kids and grown-ups living with all illnesses and trauma. Through their humorous programs, Comedy Cures entertains and educates patients, families and medical caregivers about the positive benefits of laughter and the power of a comic perspective on the mind, body and spirit. The Comedy Cures programs show patients of all ages how to integrate joy and humor into every day life.
