US and UK Food Brands for Allergies
« on: May 27, 2005, 19:39:20 pm »
Thought it may be helpful to list foods that we all use for whatever allergy we are dealing with. If we use the following abbreviations (any suggestions welcomed if I miss something) against any items after listing their brand name and then list where you normally buy from it may make shopping easier for other/new parents dealing with food allergies.

DF - Dairy Free
SF - Soya Free
EF - Egg Free
WF - Wheat Free
PF - Peanut free
TF - treenut free
FF - fish free
CF - Crustacean shellfish free

I've listed the top 8 allergens as we could go on forever and the others are more obvious and less likely to be "hidden" in food. I haven't listed the obvious things eg there's not likely to be fish in bread! but if you do come across a product that could have a possible allergen in to others please let people know.
* If you use the above headings to start with and we'll keep adding headings and items

Rice Dream brand rice milk, "ice cream" in several flavors including strawberry, vanilla, orange cream (Note: their label now reads "this item may contain traces of milk because it was produced on the same equipment that processes milk" but with an intolerance *not allergy* I have not had a problem with this) DF, SF

Thanks to fifibobandmore:

I have to check the labels for additives so I think AF which has popped up on a few of my packages means Additive Free. All Additives affect my DS#1 asthma so for him everything has to be made in house including his favourite meal at the moment of chicken nuggets, corn on the cob and spicy potatoe wedges
Wendy -

Zach - 3 1/2 yrs old. My sweet, loving, gentle boy that loves playing in the dirt!

Tyler - 17 months.  My very very spirited little boy.  Can't turn your back for a minute.  He is doing the cutest things now!  Loves to eat and climb!

The orgran range is very good for multiple food allergies. It is an australian brand but is available in the UK. Some supermarkets stock a limited range but we have a vegan store in Manchester that stocks a wide range of these products.


James has atopic eczema, multiple food allergies, asthma and late talker
