Nutrinaz will help you manage food allergies with a custom diet that you’ll love!
Food allergies are frustrating, especially when common foods are the culprits. Many allergic reactions can be life threatening, so whether you’re an adult with allergies or you have a child with food allergy symptoms, it’s important to develop an allergy diet that is safe and nutritionally balanced.
An Nutrinaz dietitian can examine your case and match you with an effective diet and exercise program. We customize each person’s diet plan, so you’ll make as few sacrifices as possible. If you have a favourite dish that you just can’t live without, chances are we know of a recipe that compensates for your allergy symptoms.
There are several types of food allergies, and each type requires different dietary restrictions. When we design your health program, we’ll provide you with a list of easy-to-prepare recipes that correspond with your food restrictions and nutritional needs.
Food Allergy Diet Guidelines
Here is an outline of common allergies including a list of foods that are commonly associated with each:
Egg allergies are particularly inconvenient because so many foods incorporate eggs as a leavening agent. Foods to Avoid: Cakes, cookies, chocolate, marshmallows, fondants, egg-containing soups, mayonnaise, custards, pudding, ice cream, cream pies, eggnog, egg creams, French toast, fritters, pancakes, muffins, rolls, bagels, doughnuts, meatloaf, egg-containing batter, meringues, pretzels, egg substitutes, hollandaise, Caesar dressing, Russian dressing and mayonnaise-based dressing.
Because lactose allergies are extremely common, there are plenty of substitutes for your favorite foods. Foods that should not be consumed in their natural forms include: cream, milk, lactaid, yogurt, ice cream, cream sauces, cheese, certain breads, mashed potatoes and breakfast mixes.
The immune system can react to wheat in several ways. This can make it difficult to create a diet for people with wheat allergies. It can help to begin with a strict diet and add foods overtime.
In children, wheat allergies can cause immediate reactions due to the activation of IgE antibodies. Common reactions include throat swelling, anaphylaxis, vomiting and eczema. Fortunately, many adolescents outgrow this allergy as their immune systems develop.
If you or your child suffers from a food allergy, beware of certain words on food labels: farina, bran, flour, wheat germ, wheat starch, spelt and semolina. Foods that should be avoided in their natural forms include cornbread, crackers, cereals, pasta, meatloaf, sausages, hot dogs, flour-containing sauces, waffles, pancakes, fritters, beer and certain salad dressings.
