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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

OmnigestEZ, A Lactase Pill

Saw this on the shelves of my local supermarket. OmnigestEZ claims to be an all-around digestive of "most all types of food: fats, protein, starch and carbohydrates, vegetables and dairy."

How does it do this? With a mix of several digestive enzymes: acid protease, amylase, cellulase, glucoamylase, lipase, and nutral protease in addition to lactase.

There are many such pills on the market, but few contain what I consider to be a useful amount of lactase. OmnigestEZ does, with 3000 FCC units, the same as most basic (not ultra) lactase pills. That justifies this statement on their FAQs.

Q: I am lactose intolerant; will OMNIGEST EZ help me?

A: Yes. OMNIGEST EZ contains the right amount of the enzyme lactase to aid in the digestion of typical meals containing dairy products.
