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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Redwood Wholefood Company Named Best Vegan Company

In the first ever Vegan Environmental Awards, the UK firm Redwood Wholefood Company was named Best Vegan Company.

An article in the Northampton Chronicle and Echo said that:

The awards, organised by vegan company Yaoh, were designed to recognise the unique positive contribution of the vegan lifestyle to the environment by focusing attention on some of the stars from the vegan community.

Thousands of British vegans voted for their favorites in the competition.

Redwood won because:

The company’s aim throughout its ten-year history has been to create innovative and inspirational meat-free foods that reflect the principles of veganism – namely health, compassion towards animals and concern for the environment.

The entire range of Redwood products are healthy and suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those with dietary needs – be it religious or medical.

Every product is free from lactose, cholesterol, hydrogenated fats and artificial colours or preservatives.

Redwood Foods are also available in Spain and in Australia.

As I try to point out, vegan foods are perfect for those who are lactose intolerant or want or need to avoid dairy for any other reason.

I'd tell you who else won Vegan Environmental Awards, but even though the awards were given out as far back as June 10th, their website still hasn't been updated. [!] Can anyone explain this?
