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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Lacteeze Drops Now Available Through eBay

Pat Gilbers sent me an email with exciting news for the lactose intolerant. He's making Lacteeze brand lactase drops available in the U.S.

Lacteeze is a major Canadian brand of lactase in tablet form, chewable tablets for children, and drops for adding to liquids and removing the lactose. They were the only brand available to North American buyers for years after Lactaid pulled out of the market. The people at their manufacturer, Gelda Scientific, graciously worked with me to ensure that people could find their order form through my website.

Here's what I have on my website, direct from Gelda:

Lacteeze Lactase drops are very convenient to use. Just add 5 drops to 1 litre or 1 quart of milk or other fluid milk products, mix and leave in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This will convert 70-80% of the lactose in the dairy product. If symptoms of lactose intolerance persist, refrigerate for additional 24 hrs (total of 48 hours) or increase the dose to 8-10 drops. This will convert at least 90% of the lactose. If symptoms still persist please consult your doctor.

May be used to reduce lactose in fresh milk, reconstituted milk, canned condensed milk, creams, chocolate milk and any other fluid milk products.

Product Shelf Life: Shelf life of the product is 15 months at room temperature from the date of manufacturing. If the product is kept refrigerated upon receipt you can extend the shelf life by additional 6 months.

Of course, it was less convenient for those in the U.S. to have to order drops from Canada.

That's going to change. Pat is starting a website,, so that you can order them and stay within the country. He'll be the first Lacteeze distributor in the U.S. Don't go there yet. I've been sitting on this news because the site is not up and running.

In the meantime, Pat let me know that he's put Lacteeze onto eBay. Just type Lacteeze into the search bar. You can buy it in quantities of 3, 6, 9, or 12 bottles.

I'll let you know as soon as the Lacteeze Store site goes live.
