Hi, My name is Stephanie and I have been extremly allergic to Dairy Products since i was a baby. My parents and i have always had to Read every single ingredence on everything. I am almost 20 years old and I have always wondered if there was anyone that was worse then me out there with their milk allergies.
My mom came up with an idea of making cards for me to carry around and give to the server at each restaurant we go to to make sure they check everything, and inform them that it is a deadly allergy. The card is like a bussness card and on the front it says:
Food Allergy Information:
I think that i have selected a safe meal from your menu, but will need your help to make sure. I am severely allergic to milk and any milk- derived products, even in small amounts, and to tree nuts. Can you please make sure that the meal I have selected does not contain these ingredients, and is not prepared or plated even to touch milk or milk-derived products or tree nuts? Thank You so much!
Then on the back of the card it says:
Please be careful! If my meal contains any of these ingredients, I can get really sick.
Milk products include milk, non-fat dried milk, creams, butter, butter solids, dried milk solids, cheese, yogurt, whey, margarine, lactose, lactate, sodium lactate, ferrous lactate, curds, casein, sodium caseinate, roux.
tree nuts would include tree nut oils.
Thanks again so much, -name-
This card has really helped and many kitchens respect it! and do very well.
I have found that i can have Fleshmans unsalted or light margarine only not the regular one and no other margarine.
I can have Pilsbury Iceings most,
UD - usually means milk but doesnt always,
and Pureve doesnt always mean milk free.
Hope these things are good ideas to who ever needs help with their food allergies feel free to e-mail me about anything.
