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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

What's New at Tofutti

Tofutti Brands, Inc. was started in the 1970s by David Mintz, who was looking to make nondairy desserts for his kosher deli. Experimentation led him to tofu, the soy curd that can be processed, flavored, and molded in a thousand different ways. Tofutti sour cream and cream cheese substitutes were born. Tofutti soy ice cream was harder to make - the soy taste kept overwhelming the flavorings - but he beat that as well.

Now Tofutti has a wide-ranging line of frozen desserts and other milk alternatives, all made from soy. And all kosher and parve.

David Mintz is still at the head of his company and still coming out with new flavors.

The Tofutti What's New page introduces Mint by Mintz, cool mint flavor Tofutti soy frozen dessert dipped in organic chocolate coating; Key Lime Pie-flavored Cuties (snack-sized sandwiches); Sour Supreme Non-Hydrogenated, their Better Than Sour Cream substitute; a companion non-hydrogenated Better Than Cream Cheese substitute; and a Blueberry and Cheese-filled flavor of Mintz's Blintzes, where the cheese is of course their own nondairy cream cheese substitute.
