Does anyone know if there is such a thing as powdered lactose free milk? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I have a 3 yr. old granddaughter who is lactose intolerant. I have not seen anything on a powdered form of this. I would not want to have to freeze her milk for her for an extended time, if it's not available. Thank you in advance for any info. Karen

Karen, I don't know the answer to your question, but I am lactose intolerant myself. I am stocking up on lactaid pills so I can eat/drink some of the dairy products I have stored. I am also stocking up on rice and soy milk in the cartons that do not have to be refrigerated. Hope this helps. Nicki

There are powdered soy and rice milks available: try your local health food store or the milk alternatives section of your grocery store. The only one I've tried is called "better than milk," which I've even been able to purchase in mainstream supermarkets like Giant. It ain't bad. The company has a web site at and they can tell you if there is a store near you that stocks their product.

Another idea are the single-serving, shelf-stable boxes of soy and rice milk. Edensoy and (I think) Soy Dream and Rice Dream are available this way. It solves the problem of refrigeration that comes with buying the regular-size shelf-stable boxes. I couldn't resist $11 per case for this at my local health food store, though, so I'm going to rely on the winter weather to keep it from skunking if I don't finish the box after I open it. The shelf life for unopened boxes is quite long.

Good idea to keep dry on hand, though, too: it's economical and it's also more compact to store.
