I just published word on my Planet Lactose blog that lactase drops are once again available in the United States, after many years. Lactaid drops were available in Canada but not in the United States and nobody had stepped in to take their place.

This week I heard from Brian C. who gave me the amazing news that he could get liquid lactase drops from the online store of IBS Treatment Center in Seattle, Washington or The Center for Food Allergies, same web address.

1229 Madison Street
Suite 1220
Seattle, WA 98104

Pharmax Liquid Lactase is not limited to Seattle. I found it on for $11.30 a bottle.

Don't forget that you can still order then from the good people at Gelda Scientific in Canada, who have graciously helped fill the gap these long empty years. They are the makers of Lacteeze.

Most Americans haven't heard of Lacteeze because it is a Canadian brand, makers of a complete line of lactase tablets and drops, and even milk, yogourt, and ice cream. If you go to the Kingsmill Foods Lacteeze page or the GayLea Foods Lacteeze page, you'll see contact information and recipes for Lacteeze products.

Gelda Scientific is the company that makes the lactase drops for them.

Here is some additional information about Lacteeze drops 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.

    Note: Two other Canadian firms have contacted me to say that Lacteeze can also be ordered from them.

    One is They accept PayPal as well as checks and money orders. You can e-mail them at: or call 1-866-567-6455 for more information or for credit card orders.

In Britain you can get drops from BioCare. See my UK News page for details.
