The Most Common Food Allergies

Food Allergies Are you planning on serving food to a large group of people at some point in the near future? Before you do, you should think about the fact that there are many people out there who have food allergies that prevent them from eating certain types of food. In some cases, a person with a food allergy will have a relatively mild reaction to eating some foods. They might get a small rash or experience itchy eyes. But in other cases, a person with a food allergy could be left gasping for their next breath when they eat a particular food. Food allergies can, unfortunately, be very serious, so you should take them into account whenever you feed groups of people.

According to WebMD, there are eight types of food that cause about 90 percent of all the food allergy reactions that people experience. There are many people who are allergic to peanuts as well as tree nuts, including almonds, pecans, walnuts, pine nuts, and more. There are also many people allergic to milk and eggs. Wheat and some other types of grain that contain gluten can cause food allergies as well, as can soy. Moreover, many adults out there suffer from allergies to certain kinds of fish and shellfish. People don’t always have to come in direct contact with these foods, either, as they can also show signs of an allergy simply by sitting at a table where one of these foods was prepared or served.

If you are catering a small event, you might want to speak with those who will be attending about whether or not they have any food allergies.
