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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Lifetime Cheese Stops Mail Order

What seems like a lifetime ago, pun intended, I wrote a news item for my web site announcing that I had found a true milk lactose-free cheese.

Lifetime Specialty Cheeses says:

FLAVORS: Cheddar, Swiss, Jalapeno Jack and Mozzarella

Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest significant amounts of lactose, which is the predominant sugar of cow's milk. This condition may cause a wide range of symptoms after ingestion of foods containing lactose.

*50 Million American adults are lactose intolerant

*25% of all U.S. households include someone who is lactose intolerant.

Dairy products are a major source of calcium in the basic American diet. Calcium is needed for the growth and repair of bones throughout life. In the mid and later years, a lack of calcium may lead to osteoporosis.

The solution is to enjoy calcium rich, lactose free, fat free dairy products like Lifetime Lactose Free Fat Free Cheese!

Unfortunately, a reader just informed me that he found this also on their website:

Unfortunately, due to the high cost associated with shipping refrigerated cheese, Lifeline Food Company can no longer offer this service to our customers.

Our products will continue to be available in retail stores throughout the country and we will continue to expand our distribution into more areas.

We thank our customers for their loyal support of our products. Please call us if you would like to see Lifetime cheeses in your local stores.

The cheeses are still available in a wide variety of stores across the country, though.

Lifetime has been available for Mail Order (since 2009) through Northwoods Cheese. Here's their link:

Additionally, Lifetime now makes Snack Sticks to go along with the 13 different flavors of blocks they've always had. And it's all available through Northwoods! Woohoo!!

REJOICE!!! Lifetime Cheese rules (at least for us health-focused people!).
