The Lists

Why an updated and expanded list of allergens?

Since my book was published I have found more than over 100 new names used on product labels that can indicate the presence of hidden allergens. Some of them are fairly obvious but are included for completeness. Others are more unexpected. For instance, both dry powder type asthma inhaler and latex gloves can be a hidden source of exposure to milk allergens. These new names and products are posted below.

As many of you are probably already aware, if you have either classical food allergies or food sensitivities (the difference is explained on pages 30-32 of the book Conquering Arthritis) avoiding hidden allergens is a critical part of getting well and staying well. Knowing exactly where these hidden allergens are found is an important part of being able to avoid them.

If you have more names to add to my hidden allergen list, please send them to me at:
