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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

FAAN College Network

The always-busy, coming-up-with-new-sites, allergy organization FAAN (the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) has yet another one, the Food College Network.

And that is? The Food Safety News said:

The FAAN College Network is a website that provides college-related food allergy resources for college students and parents. The network provides a searchable database of over 40 colleges and universities with the contact information for food allergy representatives on each campus as well as what steps the schools have taken to accommodate students.

FAAN also provides a list of guidelines for schools to follow in accommodating students with food allergies.

In addition to joining the FAAN College Network, some Colleges and Universities have begun posting more detailed labels near food in the dining halls. Signage in these dining halls can include anything from pointing out common allergens to full ingredient lists. Some schools even offer convenient frozen meals and special items such as gluten-free bread to make things easier for students.

Their FAQ Page is a good place for college-bound students to start.
