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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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 Milk Powder and Butter from Valio

Valio, the big Finnish dairy company, has announced a new "Zero Lactose" line of ingredients. From the press release:

Valio, the leading Finnish dairy company, now offers lactose free ingredients for sale worldwide.

Valio's new Zero Lactose range of ingredients includes skimmed milk powder and butter, which are lactose free. Zero Lactose ingredients are ideal for the production of lactose free products by bakeries, confectionaries, dairy companies and other industries that rely on dairy products as ingredients. By using Valio Zero Lactose ingredients these companies can expand their offering and sell products that appeal to lactose intolerant customers as well.

In addition, Valio's lactose free technology is now more widely available for licensing, worldwide. Valio's lactose free technology produces a milk drink that contains less than 0.01% lactose and still tastes exactly like fresh milk. Valio's lactose free products have been hugely popular in Finland, bringing new growth to the milk market. Lactose free products using Valio's technology have also been successfully launched in Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, South Korea and Belgium.

These are the first true lactose-free milk powders and butters that I am aware of anywhere in the world. A great advance for lactose-free baking.

Now let's hope that the products soon come to the U.S. and to retail stores.

None of the Valio dried milk lactose-free products are sold directly to the public in the U.S.

However, I've found this English-language site that talks about online purchasing. Lactose free non fat dried milk powder 400 g

I guarantee nothing, but that's the place to try.
