If you live in New Jersey, take action now by urging your local representative in the New Jersey state legislature to move a bill through the legislative process that covers the cost of special formula for eosinophilic disorders regardless of delivery method. The bill, S2649, gives health insurance coverage for amino acid-based elemental formulas (like Neocate® or EleCare®) for eosinophilic disorders. The bill provides coverage for elemental formula no matter how it is delivered. An infant...
Today I discovered Subway now offers sesame ginger kitchen. This is a major blow for those of us who depend on Subway to provide peanut, tree nut, and sesame free food. Is there anything you can do? Thank you Amy Kay
Be careful with King Arthur products. I purchased their brownies and sent an email to ask about treenuts/peanuts in their mixes. Please see their response below RESPONSE Thanks for contacting us here at King Arthur Flour. King Arthur Flour’s certified gluten-free blends and mixes don’t have any of the U.S. top 8 allergens added to them as ingredients; however, they can share production equipment with eggs, dairy, soy, coconut, and almonds. We employ robust allergen-control measures in order...
This is really great. I was watching Bloomberg and they were interviewing the Nestle president. He was speaking about being dedicated to cleaner food and overall improving their product for all people. I am impressed. I saw this interview maybe 3 months ago and to already see products on the self is a good sign. Thanks for sharing
El Moe, thanks for sharing! You've reminded all of us parents how important it is to check with the manufacturer and compare their cleaning practices and labeling policies with our doctor's advice and our comfort zones. Another tip a friend has shared with me: periodically check with companies that I may have avoided in the past, because due to letters just like yours, they may change their policies!
As a fellow mom who has helped her daughter manage a corn allergy, I hear ya! Keep on the lookout as more products are added, and hopefully there WILL be some that will work with your allergy set. And please feel free to start a new topic on our community forums -- I have found great support in managing a corn allergy on our forums, and hopefully you will, too!
I'm sure this snack will be beneficial to many kids. However, some years ago, our allergy doctor informed us that sometimes kids with Soy or Peanut allergy develop allergies to other legumes. If your child has Soy or Peanut allergy and hasn't eaten Chickpeas much, please be sure to check about the Chickpeas Our child has both serious soy and peanut allergies and sure enough quickly became allergic to both chickpeas and lentils within a year of the initial diagnosis.
GREAT FIND we however like many families have a peanut anaph. allergy and peanuts are a legume just like peas, lentils, beans and chickpeas. Hopefully anyone trying already is cleared from being allergic to chickpeas.
Could you check the company website's store locator ? Some products on our FAllergy Friendly Food are showcased at Expo West and will be available later in the year, while others are available now, but they may not be available nationwide at first.
Good points to remind folks about cross-reactivity! Cross-reactivity occurs when the proteins in one food are similar to the proteins in another. When that happens, the body's immune system sees them as the same. While many people don't experience problems with cross-reactivity, it's always a good idea to check with your doctor about a new food that is similar to one of the allergens you manage.
We have tried the chocolate covered cookie dough that Better Bites makes and it tastes just like cookie dough! It is cookie dough with choc. chips in it and covered with chocolate.Very Yummy! Pricey but a nice treat that is yummy and allergen friendly (check label for ingredients, allergens and if safe you you). I haven't seen the birthday do bites ones yet. They do make a brownie with choc. chips on top and a brownie bite covered with chocolate which are decadently delicious too!
We’ve been purchasing this and other free2be foods since 2018 when the company first hit the market! We love them all. I’ve purchased these several time and since my son is away at college, it’s a perfect treat to put in his care packages and “just because” surprise packages. We love them — even for those of us in our family that are not food allergic!!!
