Top 8 Most Common Childhood Food Allergies
by Abbie Frank
contaminated with the problem product.

Here's the top eight most common food allergies

1. Milk and dairy products

Problem Source: a lot of restaurant food is prepared on a common grill. Butter and
cream is often used in many products. Even products labeled as "nondairy" may
contain a substance or compound derived from milk or dairy.

2.
Eggs

Egg whites are also a source of problem for many. Eggs substitutes are known to
use egg whites in an attempt to be heart healthy and limit cholesterol. If you have a
sensitivity to eggs, most pasta including macaroni and spaghetti can cause a problem.

3.
Peanuts

Consider the fact that although a person with a peanut allergy may simply order an
ice cream cone at the local Dairy Queen, the cone itself, wrapper and most probably
the counters may have all come in contact with peanut toppings.

4.
Tree nuts (such as almonds, cashews, walnuts)

Here, the problem is more with cooking oils than anything else. Foods can be
prepared in a variety of oils that are derived from nuts. Many foods use oils in the
manufacturing of the product. Modern food manufacturing also can cause
cross-contamination or contact as many foods are made using the same equipment.
Tree Nut shells have also found their way into many common products as an
abrasive.

5.
Fish

While identifying are fishy friends from the ocean is relatively easy, don't forget that a
lot of prepackaged sauces may also contain fish oils and products. Common steak
and Worcestershire sauces may contain in anchovy dish

6.
Shellfish - shrimp and lobster

Cross contact contamination in restaurants is a big issue here. Your nice big steak
may have been sizzling right next to the other diners stack of shrimp
Watch also when going in for medical tests. This is especially true for any MRI type
test that requires dye injections. Depending on the body part to be examined, a
contrast medium or dye can be injected into your veins. These contrast mediums
can be shellfish based!

7.
Soy

Although considered a healthy product, for someone with a story and tolerance
many foods. Cereals, soups, infant formulas, prepackaged sauces, and many baked
goods can all use soy or soy products in their recipes.

8.
Wheat and Gluten

From a food perspective, this is probably one of the most challenging to keep under
control. Wheat-based products and gluten are used in many products. Think flour.
We're talking about most baked goods, all breads, rolls, crackers, tortillas, fried foods
breading and anything else where flour is an ingredient.
