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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Gluten-Free Essentials, Plus A Prize

Alisa Fleming, of, sent out a press release about her latest contest.

A new specialty food manufacturer has burst onto the scene, proclaiming, "Gluten-Free is not a luxury… We just make it taste like one." They have arrived not a moment too soon, as gluten-free and other “free-from” diets are no longer considered a passing fad; they are a lifelong necessity for millions of people.

With three generations of Celiacs to serve, the founders of Gluten-Free Essentials are dedicated to helping those on a gluten-free diet live a healthy, happy and normal life. Of course, they are all too aware of autistic (GF/CF), food allergy, and food intolerance needs also. Every product in the extensive Gluten-Free Essentials line-up is all natural, vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and of course gluten-free.

Leaving virtually no stone unturned, the Gluten-Free Essentials product line includes 16 baking mixes, 5 quick-cooking rice mixes, and their newest line of 6 Speedy-Bake mixes for kids. Each Speedy-Bake package sports colorful pictures and directions for preparing in an easy-bake oven, along with the full-size oven directions. Though the fun graphics and kid-friendly directions suit the primary target audience, less populous households without kids will enjoy the smaller sizing of these mixes (making a more convenient amount for one or two people) and the correspondingly lower price.
