The Plight of the Lactose Intolerant

Have we been neglected? I think so. On a 1996 search of Yahoo!, I found one matching category and only two web pages about lactose intolerance. Compare this to the thousands of matches for any other affliction, and you see that yes, the lactose intolerant community has been neglected. Since I published this website in 1996, the entries have continued to increase! Thank you for your interest in making lactose intolerance more well known. As more web pages appear on the Internet, food companies and grocery stores become more aware of the needs of people who cannot consume dairy. I receive email, phone calls, and letters not only from lactose intolerant people worldwide, but from manufacturers interested in making food more edible for the lactose intolerant. (And have you noticed the new Lactagen commercials? Yay! There seems to be better solutions coming out!)

This page is an entertaining, informational resource on lactose intolerance. I advocate and recommend products based on my experience and success with these products whenever possible. If you have product recommendations, questions, comments, recipes, or anything lactose intolerance related to share, I encourage you to post them on the blog. This informational hub for lactose intolerance is only as strong and informative as your participation.

We, the dairy-inable, are an Invisible Minority. Welcome to your virtual support group! Empower yourself–read on.
