Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

MACEMama ·
I came across a funky one while going through DS' candy tonight. I knew Tootsie Rolls have milk in them, but I was curiously reading the label while snacking on a lemon flavored one (habit ). Ingredients are: While the condensed skim milk does meet the plain English requirement for FALCPA labeling, the whey in it would not (as it is not clearly listed as "milk."). I wonder if it gets off on the technicality that it has another milk ingredient with the word milk in it.

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

Melanie Carver ·
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: The AllergyEats 2014 List of Most Allergy-Friendly Restaurant Chains

yvonne ·
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...

Hi Yvonne - sorry you had a bad experience at Chipotle. Have you checked them lately?? They're in the process of phasing out the soy in the offerings in favor of rice bran oil. http://community.kidswithfooda...hipotle-menu-changes Also, we have a number of members who are vegan and dealing w/ other food allergies as well - I encourage you to post on the forums asking whatever questions you have.

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...

Mexican and Italian restaurants skeeved me out too, until we discovered that one of our local Italian restaurants had safe bread for DS (flour, yeast, olive oil, sugar, and water). It was the first restaurant that puts bread on the table that was safe for him. He's also very happy with a plate of pasta with olive oil and herbs, and he has been spoiled rotten there. Mexican restaurants where I live often have language barrier issues, so I never trusted them with FA, though I enjoyed the food...

It depends on the Chipotle, the ones by us use sunflower oil with some items using rice bran. Our son has a soy intolerance and we've always been able to avoid soy at Chipotle.

Re: Super Sun-Dried Tomatoes! 3 Allergy-Friendly Recipes

Monster Mom ·
I have ones that are just dried tomatoes "Bella Sun Luc"i- Nut free sun dried tomatoes were really hard to find, no matter the form. I found that one brand, but never called to confirm if they are around nuts. there are no warnings on the package, and as it turns out, my child ended up being allergic to the tomatoes. I assume the dried one not in oil may need some oil added in to compensate, or be heated with water, I can't remember if the dried ones are dehydrated or slightly plump. HTH

Do the Food Allergen Labeling Laws Apply to Cosmetics?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
From lip balm and shampoo to moisturizers and eye shadow, cosmetics are overseen by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Even though these products go on our lips and skin, the FDA provides a lot less oversight than you might expect. In fact, most of the time the government does not get involved until there is a problem. Here’s what you need to know. What are “cosmetics”? The government defines “cosmetics” based on how the product is meant to be used. Cosmetics are meant to be rubbed,...
