Re: Gluten-Free, Milk-Free, Egg-Free Sweet Potato Bread

Will Way ·
I tried this bread and my family loved it. My older son who doesn't have any food allergies ate 2 slices with butter and wanted more. My husband didn't think it tasted like gluten free bread at all! Thanks for this recipe. I was using egg replacer before and it didn't have much flavor. I like the extra vitamins that we are getting by using sweet potato too. ��

Re: Peanut-Free, Milk-Free Chocolate Buckeye Candy

Starkled ·
Hi Denise! I've never seen a chocolate bar that didn't have other ingredients such as sugar, cocoa butter and emulsifiers--what brand is it if you don't mind sharing? I've had some 100% chocolate, but it was basically just a brick of pressed cocoa powder and wouldn't have been suitable for using in a recipe like this one. Without those other ingredients I can't imagine it would melt very well. The other consideration would be to make sure you had contacted the manufacturer of the chocolate...

Good Morning! I'm a Mom of 2, ages 3.5 and 18 months. In our household we have an anaphylactic dairy allergy and a corn allergy.

Re: Milk Allergy Alert: NuGO Bars

I had an anaphalactic reaction after eating one of these bars for breakfast last year. I lost consciousness while on the phone to my mother and was taken to the ER via ambulance after she called a neighbor. I assumed it was something else I must have come into contact with (although it was the only thing I had eaten that morning). I stupidly continued to eat the bars, getting sick every time (although not as bad). I thought it must have been one of the other ingredients, since it was milk...

I had my son tested IgE with an allergist because of his eczema condition. We knew his allergy to milk at age of one, hives right after 1 oz of whole milk. He was bs mostly the first 6 months, then alimentum after. He had regular Similic couple times before 6 months but no reactions. His IgE for milk is 6.29, so I think it confirmed his milk allergy. He is still on alimentum and he is 16 1/2 months. His IgE for egg white is above 50, I had not introduced egg to him yet, but with the MMR (had...

Re: How to Make the Zebra Effect on Allergy-Friendly Cake

Hi Kim, Just be sure to read every ingredient label of every thing you use. Be aware that some ingredients in your kitchen may be contaminated if you ever double-dipped. The safest thing to do is buy all new ingredients. If you want to make a frosting/icing for this cake, you'll need to use milk and soy free shortening or margarine. Options are Earth Balance soy-free (red packaging) or coconut oil (among a few others). You can keep it simple and just do the solid fat (safe margarine or...

Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

Colleen English Ross ·
Sorry, I think you misunderstood me. What I was talking about is different than shared lines at a manufacturer's facility. I am talking about when a third party repackages a product like Dum Dums for a store such as Target, CVS, etc. This is done separate from the manufacturer's facility. Even though the candy may have been free of allergens when made and packaged in a manufacturer's facility. These repackaged items, cross-contamination is introduced when the it is rebagged by a third-party.

I'm shocked to find Chipotle on that list! My daughter (6 y/o) LOVE'S Chipotle. One day she asked me why everything has soy (that's one of her allergens) in it. We decided to google it and found that soy lecithin is utilized as an emulsifier easing the oil/water mix and extending shelf life. A few days later we went to Chipotle, because I had never thought to ask about their allergen info, I decided to ask the woman behind the bar if any of the foods had soy. She gave me a small check-list...

All of these are based on user feedback. If you've had a bad experience, then go share that. If you've had a good experience somewhere, go share that. As for Chipotle, I know they are rolling out the change over. Our local restaurants have signs up about the rice oil change. I'm not sure the start of their printed material. I suggest calling or stopping in to ask about where that particular restaurant is in the changeover. PF Changs is very allergy aware. While it may not seem allergy...

I was very skeptical of Mexican and Italian restaurants in the beginning. The idea that there was so much cheese in the kitchen made me very nervous. However, I was surprised to learn that many Mexican restaurants don't use much in the way of milk or butter... just lots of cheese. For DS we are almost always able to get him white rice and beans (black or refried - hold the cheese). Occasionally we get him meat, too, but honestly he loves rice and beans so much he prefers them over the meat.

Re: How to Decorate an Allergy-Friendly Cake (Part 1)

I do have a heating core, but I've found that allergen friendly cakes don't always bake well in larger sizes. This is especially true of egg free cakes since they lack key structure. If you can get it baked through, the chance of cracking or crumbling while handling it is pretty high. I've found that Wacky Cake doesn't do well in anything bigger than 9x13 - it takes so long for the center to heat up that the single acting leavening just fizzles out. Gluten/wheat free cakes are very difficult...
