Adults with Food Allergies / Re: How Should I Try New Foods???
« Last post by rewgs on Yesterday at 10:00:20 PM »
Then that means that I am continually developing new allergies =( Its been very scary.  Did not start happening until I quit taking an awful medication, always wondered if there was a relation.

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I'm doing some research and this is the first time I've come across someone with a situation similar to mine: food allergies appearing after ceasing a medication, and new allergies continuing to develop.

What was the medication you were taking?

Mfrs. & Packaged Food / Re: Bob’s Red Mill
« Last post by spacecanada on Yesterday at 05:41:22 PM »
From 2020. Nothing they make is safe for me, but I was checking in for my clients going to Walt Disney World.

Thank you for reaching out to us about this. We currently have three facilities where our products are made: two on-site segregated milling & packaging rooms and an offsite facility where our Bob’s Bars are packaged and produced. Our on-site facilities include a dedicated Gluten Free Facility and a Conventional Facility. Nothing enters our Gluten Free Facility without having been tested for gluten cross contact.  If you do not see our Gluten Free Symbol on the front of the package, then the product was packaged in our Conventional Facility. 

Our Conventional Facility processes almonds, coconut, walnuts, soy, wheat, corn, milk, oats, and sesame seeds.

Our Gluten Free Facility processes almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, coconut, macadamia nuts, soy, oats, sesame seeds, and corn ingredients.

Our new line of Bob’s Bars are produced and packaged in an off-site facility that handles wheat, peanuts, egg, soy, milk, and tree nuts (tree nuts may include but not limited to: walnuts, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, and pistachios). The bars are tested for the presence of gluten by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization, a branch of the Gluten Intolerance Group. You can identify these select products by the GFCO logo on the product packages.

Each manufacturing facility follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and follows allergen control strategies to minimize the potential cross contact of food allergens. These practices include, but are not limited to: HACCP training, separation of like materials, and sanitation. In our on-site facilities, we clean our machinery thoroughly with high-pressure air and vacuums between each production run, inspecting and validating cleanliness before a new product is introduced. When a new product is introduced, we flush the lines, donating or discarding the first 20 pounds of product per lot before beginning the new packaging process.

Despite these precautions, we are unable to guarantee that cross-contact has not occurred because of airborne and proximity issues and because our products run on shared production lines. We only test for the presence of gluten (not traces of tree nuts, etc.) in items that are produced in our Dedicated Gluten Free Facility and the facility where our Bob’s Bars are produced.

We have hundreds of products. If you have a concern about a common or uncommon allergen and that ingredient is used in one of our facilities, it is possible for cross contact to occur. If you need more information regarding allergens, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-349-2173 and we are happy to offer additional assistance.

The last time I checked, no. But that was probably at least 10 years ago, so worth another ask.

Does Bob’s Red Mill label for cross contamination with allergens? Specifically concerned with peanut/nut and sesame seed.

Recipes & Cooking / Baking with Just Egg
« Last post by MandCmama on May 08, 2021, 08:38:36 PM »
Hi all! I tried the search function and didn’t find anything, so... has anyone baked with Just Egg? They had an Instagram story showing a cake saying you can use it to bake, but no equivalencies that I can find. Just some of their own recipes. I’d be interested to know if anyone tried and what the results were. Thanks!

Main Discussion Board / Non IgE Mediated Allergies
« Last post by GoingNuts on May 07, 2021, 05:36:54 PM »
Non-IgE-Mediated Food Allergies Are Real and VERY Misunderstood

Presenter
David Stukus, MD

Date: Monday, May 17, 2021
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET

REGISTER TODAY
Summary: This webinar will discuss types of food allergy that differ from the immediate-onset reactions that are triggered by IgE antibodies and can result in anaphylaxis. These non-IgE-mediated food allergies include food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and various forms of cow’s milk protein allergy, among others. Confusion regarding non-IgE-mediated food allergies can delay proper diagnosis or lead to unnecessary dietary avoidance. This webinar will discuss important differences between IgE-mediated and non-IgE-mediated food allergies, such as underlying causes, diagnostic testing, management, prognosis and risks. No presentation on this topic would be complete without discussion of food intolerance and sensitivity as well.

Registration is FREE, and a recording of the webinar will be sent to all registered attendees.

Please send questions in advance to Karie Mulkowsky at kmulkowsky@foodallergy.org.
