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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Kosher Certified Lactase Drops

It was huge news when I was able to announce earlier this year that lactase drops were once again available in the U.S.

That's great, but it was insufficient news for some people who needed more information. I received a question today asking me if any lactase drops were kosher certified.

After much searching, I've found that both the Lacteeze Enzyme Drops made and sold in Canada by Gelda Pharmaceutical and the LACTAID® Lactase Enzyme Drops made and sold in Canada by McNeil specifically say that they are kosher-certified on those web pages I linked to.

Both can be ordered from a number of Canadian pharmacies and online sites.

Unfortunately, Pharmax Liquid Lactase, the brand that is sold in the U.S., does not have a kosher certification.
