Food Allergies? How to Know If You Can Eat Specific Foods
Read the Labels
A quick glance at the label can help you understand whether or not the food contains the ingredients that you need to avoid. If you have food allergies, then it is important that you understand the exact ingredients that need to be avoided, as well as any other disguised ingredients that might aggravate your allergies.
Be cautious about generalized ingredients. For example, if the label says "chocolate chips" and you are allergic to gluten, then you might need to learn more about the chocolate to make sure that the product contains gluten free chocolate chips.
Talk With the Store or Manufacturer
If there is ever a question about whether a specific food is safe for you to eat, then you might consider calling the manufacturer to learn more about the ingredients. Many companies are happy to answer your questions and provide additional information as needed.
You can also talk with a store manager or employee. Visiting a local health food store can be a great way to find foods that you can eat, and you will discover that the employees are very knowledgeable about food allergies. Or, if you can't find anything locally, then look online for a vendor who offers specialty items that are safe for people with food allergies.
