Fan of FAAN
I'm a big fan (and a member) of FAAN - the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. I just added it to my list of favorite websites on the side of this blog. A number of years ago, I worked for a large pharmaceutical company, and we worked closely with FAAN to make chewing gum labeling more user-friendly to milk-allergy sufferers. Who would have thought that some types of chewing gum contained milk protein? If you have a genuine food allergy, you need to look at labels very carefully. The information on the FAAN website is very reliable.
