Congrats to this Red Sox player, whose mom had this to say about him: "My little Red Sox Player! He faces allergies with bravery and determination. Michael would rather miss out on something than cause anyone around him to have to avoid a food they love. He's selfless and caring and our Super allergy Super Star! " Michael is the winner of a prize package from Go Veggie and a KFA t-shirt! Congrats, Michael!

Thanks for providing this information. By the way, the link you've shared appears to be incorrect. I found the guideline listed above in: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States: Summary of the NIAID-sponsored Expert Panel Report (p. 9, 3.7).

Re: Food Allergy Awareness: Does Exposure to Food Allergens Affect Outgrowing?

Hi Heddi, thanks for posting the link to the expert panel report. That is the report published in the clinical literature ( Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology ), which is the primary resource on this topic written for the clinician. The link we posted above is the NIH publication that is based on the Expert Panel Report and is written in plain language for patients, families and caregivers. Both are accurate references for the NIH Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food ...

Product Review: We tried the Aged White Cheddar Puffs and really liked them. They are mild in flavor and not salty. I was worried that the puffs would have the texture of Styrofoam, but they didn't. They melt in your mouth. The entire bag was gone within minutes. If you like nutritional yeast, you'll like these Puffs.
