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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

GoDairyFree's Product Lists Updated

Alsia Fleming, of, has updated her product lists.

She says:

Regardless of the reason, millions of milk-free consumers are left wondering, “What CAN I eat?” Luckily, one entrepreneurial company has spent months compiling the solution. Go Dairy Free ( has just released their second annual Non-Dairy Product Lists. The complete listing boasts thousands of products, with many available in a variety of flavors. Going well beyond the basics, each list includes the following:

• More Than Non-Dairy – Contrary to what the name might imply, milk isn’t the only sensitivity covered in these extensive lists. There are separate product lists and special diet columns specifically for no gluten, no soy, vegan (no eggs, dairy, meat, or fish, with special notations for honey), dedicated dairy-free equipment, and kosher certified. One dietary consideration often warrants another. Many dairy-free consumers with lactose intolerance or food allergies may find themselves taking on a gluten-free lifestyle, for example. These product lists aim to suit additional dietary considerations whenever possible.

• Comprehensive – From cereals to baking mixes, to milk alternatives, the people at Go Dairy Free have scoured every aisle to help fill special diet cupboards and refrigerators. Their shopping trips have covered both mainstream grocers and natural food grocers, identifying only those foods that are dairy ingredient-free (including casein, lactose, and whey).

• Trans Fat Free – In an effort to promote health and natural food when making a special diet transition, Go Dairy Free has followed the mission to make their listings free of hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and high fructose corn syrup.

• Active Links – Questions on the products? The individual listings have active links allowing consumers to click right through to the company’s website to obtain more information.

Go Dairy Free released their first product lists in 2006, though the updated 2007 roster has two new members. A separate consumer company contact list is now available with well over 500 manufacturers, company websites, and consumer email and phone lines. Also, a new nut-free product list has been added, complete with its own company contact list to verify ingredients and manufacturing processes.

The products lists are not free, averaging about $10 each.

if you want to shop online for dairy free products, you don't need to buy a list... go to and search 'dairy free' in the product descriptions and there's over 100 products to look at...
