What Are Common Foods with Hidden Dairy Products?

Read Transcript

It's all about what you put into your mouth. If you go to a dairy, or a restaurant, speak up, I give my patient a shopping ingredient card that has list of all the ingredient such as cows' milk that they can't come in contact with, that may precipitate an allergic reaction. Cosmetics, creams, sausages, hot-dogs, even a can of tuna fish may contain casein which is a major milk protein that can create havoc, if you have an allergic reaction to dairy.

Do your homework before you put something in your mouth. If you have a food allergy particularly to cows' milk proteins, don't take a chance, get the answers, see an allergist, get tested, find out what you need to avoid.
