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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Russian Kosher Lactose-Free Sweets

Russian Kosher lactose-free sweets advertised on the Internet. Talk about words you'd thought you'd never see in the same sentence. Does this mean that the apocalypse is nigh or that the new millennium really has arrived?

It's for real, apparently. The website of that of the FJC, The Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS. (The CIS, or The Commonwealth of Independent States, technically are eleven former Soviet Republics, including Russia, that are the remains of what used to be the USSR.)

The 'Kolomenskoye' confectionary factory, which is based in Moscow, has produced a line of sweets under the supervision of the Kashrut Department of the Chief Rabbinate of Russia headed by Rabbi Berel Lazar.


These delights, which include waffle cookies and two separate types of cakes, have certainly brought a smile to many faces this past weekend.

The Kashrut Department of the Chief Rabbinate of Russia guarantees the kosher element of those company products bearing the label indicating it kosherness. These products are considered to be 'parve', meaning that these treats may be eaten at any time and contain no lactose or meat products.

I've received emails from more than 30 countries since I started my website but this more than anything proves we are living on Planet Lactose.
