About Food Allergies:
For some people, gluten, milk, soya, sulphur dioxide (sulphites) and wheat (as well as their by-products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, many of these allergens are hidden and may not look or sound like their original foods. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to these foods within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 112 or 999 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

]You can learn more about food allergies from your local A&E, health authority or doctor’s surgery.
