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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Lactose Free Cheese Recipes

Last week I talked about finding real milk cheese that's lactose free, in Zeroing in on Lactose in Cheese. One of the brands I mentioned was Cabot Cheese.

By coincidence, I found this press release on that reminds us that Cabot features recipes on its website. Imagine. Real lactose free recipes using real milk cheese.

Not all Cabot's cheeses are lactose-free, remember. Aged cheddar cheese like Cabot's 50 Percent Reduced Fat Cheddar is lactose-free; Colby, Jack, Swiss and Parmesan are low-lactose options.

But if you do use one of the lactose-free varieties you can have the following, a recipe not at the Cabot site:

Harvest Stuffed Turkey Burgers with Cranberry Mayo

▪ 1 pound ground turkey (breast meat)
▪ 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
▪ 4 ounces Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar, cut into 4 (1-ounce) slices
▪ Vegetable cooking spray
▪ Salt and ground black pepper to taste
▪ 4 mixed-grain hamburger buns
▪ 8 large leaves arugula, rinsed and patted dry

1. Shape ground turkey into 8 thin patties. Spread 1 tablespoon of cranberry sauce in center of each of four of patties and top with 1 slice cheese; place remaining 4 patties on top, pinching edges together to seal.

2. Lightly coat large nonstick pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook burgers for 4 minutes per side, or until well done. (Alternatively, cook on grill.)

3. Season with salt and pepper. Place on buns and top with Cranberry Mayo and arugula.

Cranberry Mayo

▪ 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce
▪ 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise

In small bowl, stir together cranberry sauce and mayonnaise; cover and refrigerate until serving time.
