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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook is Also Lactose-Free

Not quite as far-ranging as Sophie-Free Cooking, Donna Washburn and Heather Butt's Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook: 150 Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free Recipes, Many with Egg-Free Variations still goes a long way toward solving many of the problem that those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies have.

According to the Book Description:

Gluten-free foods needn't be plain or unappetizing. When there's a food allergy such as celiac disease, wheat intolerance or lactose intolerance, that usually means cooking two separate meals. That's no longer the case, however, thanks to the imaginative recipes in Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook. Everyone can enjoy these tantalizing recipes, which include everything from baked goods, pasta dishes, appetizers and family meals to mouthwatering desserts. Here is a sampling of the inspired gluten-free recipes, most of which have an egg-free variation:

Asparagus risotto
Wild rice latkes
Skillet cornbread
Bacon and tomato biscuits
Coconut shrimp
Curried beef with rice noodles
Date orange streusel cake
Cherry almond biscotti
Pear hazelnut tart
Shirley's old-fashioned donuts.
In addition to the 150 recipes, there is extensive information about various gluten-free flours, legumes and rices. Also included are tips and techniques for baking lactose-free and egg-free products, making the book helpful for those with other allergies.

It's 320 pages with a list price of $22.95.

I had a hard time deciding where to put this in my bookstore, but finally decided that it had to go on my Allergy Cookbooks page in my Milk-Free Bookstore on my web site because it covered so many different problems.
