Fish Allergy

Usually lifelong, finned or scaly fish can cause severe allergic reactions. Approximately 40 percent of people with fish allergy have experienced their first allergic reaction as adults. Complete avoidance of one or more fish products is often advised, yet this can be difficult while traveling or eating out. Accidental exposure is more likely to occur when dining out, particularly when eating at restaurants where they offer a wide range of fish meals as well. The possibility of cross-contamination is also quite relevant. Allergic reactions to fish are diverse and these reactions to fish proteins may include a range of symptoms from mild (rashes, hives, itching, swelling, etc.) to severe (trouble breathing, wheezing, loss of consciousness, etc.). The most dangerous symptoms are breathing difficulties or a drop in blood pressure and anaphylactic shock. To prevent an allergic reaction, strict avoidance of fish and fish products is essential. Always read ingredient labels and ask restaurant employees to identify fish in your food. Communication is the key for ensuring a safe, enjoyable allergen free meal.

Milk Allergy

Allergy to cow’s milk is the most common food allergy in early childhood. Milk allergy is an abnormal and adverse response by the body’s immune system to milk protein and dairy products. Cow’s milk is the usual cause of milk allergy, but due to the fact that the proteins in cow’s milk are very similar to those found in milk from goat, sheep, buffalo and other ruminants, caution is highly advised. Therefore, people who are allergic to cow’s milk may also experience reactions to the milk of other ruminants. Interesting: The most common type of allergy-causing milk protein is alpha S1-casein. Soy milk or nut milks are considered also no solutions for people with soy, tree nuts and other multiple food allergies.

Peanut Allergy

Peanut allergy is very common, especially in children, young adults and certain ethnic groups. Peanut allergy symptoms can vary from a minor irritation to a life-threatening reaction. For some people even tiny amounts of peanuts can cause a severe, potentially fatal, allergic attack (anaphylaxis). To prevent a reaction, strict avoidance of peanut and peanut derivatives is essential and therefore highly recommended by allergists. Cross-contamination with trace amounts of peanut may also cause an allergic reaction. Make sure you read product labels carefully. Always ask restaurant employees to identify peanut ingredients. Communication is the key for ensuring a safe, enjoyable allergen free meal. Use our “Food Allergy Translate App” or your “Personal Food Allergy Translate Cards” to gain better understanding! Avoid products and dishes that contain peanut. Also avoid food and products that do not have a proper ingredient list or you cannot understand ingredients before ordering.

Shellfish Allergy

Usually lifelong, allergies to shellfish cause an allergic reaction when you eat shellfish like marine animals with shells, such as shrimp, crab, and lobster, as well as octopus and squid. Shellfish allergy can occur only to certain kinds of shellfish, or you may have a multiple allergy to many shellfish foods.
Shellfish allergy can cause mild symptoms, such as hives, red and itchy skin or nasal congestion and more severe, even life-threatening symptoms such as anaphylaxis, which is an emergency situation, requiring immediate attention. For some people, even a tiny amount of shellfish can cause the most severe reactions.

Seed Allergy (sesame seed)

Sesame seed allergy is rapidly rising in most countries, but many people never even consider sesame-containing foods as the main source of their or their childrens’ allergies. And if somebody is allergic to tree nuts, there is a good chance to be allergic to sesame seed as well, new research shows. Allergic reactions to seeds, especially to sesame seed can be severe. Sesame, sunflower, and poppy seeds have been known to cause diverse reactions. To prevent a reaction, strict and complete avoidance of seed products is essential. Always read ingredient labels and ask restaurant employees to identify sesame seed ingredients. Communication is the key for ensuring a safe, enjoyable allergen free meal.

Soy Allergy

Soy, product of soybeans (member of the legume family), is one of the most common food or food additive that cause allergies. In many cases, soy allergy already starts in early childhood and it is especially severe among babies and children under the age of 10. Approximately 0.5-1 percent of children have known allergic reactions to soy, but this number is growing rapidly due to the fact that soy is an increasing food ingredient used by the food industry. In the United States, Canada, South America and Europe, soy products and derivatives are widely used in processed and convenient food products. Soybeans alone are not a major food source in the diet of many countries (nations), but because soy itself is used in so many commercially prepared foods and traditionally in the Asian cuisine, attention is strongly required.
