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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Hope for School Lunches

The annual School Nutrition Association national conference is taking place this week at the Philadelphia Convention Center. So naturally, a local paper, the Bucks County Courier Times sent a reporter to cover it.

The article by Jo Ciavaglia contains some hopeful news for parents of kids with special diet needs.

But healthy snacks, side dishes, entrées and beverages commanded the most attention. Gluten-free, 100-percent natural, dairy-free, reduced fat, no-added sugar, organic, preservative-free and vitamin-fortified were among the buzz words that product displays and sales reps emphasized.
