About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk or milk ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 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.

About Wheat Allergies:
For some people, wheat (and wheat products) can be a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat and wheat ingredients may not be listed on the product label.

People with a wheat allergy should suspect all baked and processed breads as well as baked goods, mixes, powder and flour; beer (due to the absence of ingredient list in standardized beer, the presence of wheat does not have to be labeled in beers); cereal-based coffee substitutes such as chicory or barley; chicken and beef broth including cans and bouillon cubes); falafel balls; gluten; Host (i.e, Catholic communion wafers and altar bread); hydrolyzed plant protein; imitation bacon or bacon bits; pie fillings and puddings; prepared sauces (including chutney, soy and tamari sauce); and certain mixed seasonings.

In addition, if you see any of the following ingredients on your food, you should avoid them as they may trigger Anaphylactic Shock: Atta, Bulgur, Couscous, Durum, Einkorn, Emmer, Flour, Farina, Fu, Graham, high-gluten and high-protein flour, Kamut, Seitan, Semolina, Spelt (dinkel, farro). Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to wheat ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 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.
