Milk allergy is an adverse immune reaction to one or more proteins in cow's milk. When allergy symptoms occur, they can occur rapidly or have a gradual onset. The former may include anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening condition which requires treatment with epinephrine among other measures. The latter can take hours to days to appear, with symptoms including atopic dermatitis, inflammation of the esophagus, enteropathy involving the small intestine and proctocolitis involving the rectum and colon.In the United States, 90% of allergic responses to foods are caused by eight foods, with cow's milk being the most common. Recognition that a small number of foods are responsible for the majority of food allergies has led to requirements to prominently list these common allergens, including dairy, on food labels. One function of the immune system is to defend against infections by recognizing foreign proteins, but it should not over-react to food proteins. Heating milk proteins can cause them to become denatured, meaning to lose their 3-dimensional configuration, and thus lose allergenicity; for this reason dairy-containing baked goods may be tolerated while fresh milk triggers an allergic reaction.
Management is by avoiding eating any dairy foods or foods that contain dairy ingredients. In people with rapid reactions (IgE-mediated milk allergy), the dose capable of provoking an allergic response can be as low as a few milligrams, so recommendations are to avoid dairy strictly. The declaration of the presence of trace amounts of milk or dairy in foods is not mandatory in any country, with the exception of Brazil.Milk allergy affects between 2% and 3% of babies and young children. To reduce risk, recommendations are that babies should be exclusively breastfed for at least four months, preferably six months, before introducing cow's milk. If there is a family history of dairy allergy, then soy infant formula can be considered, but about 10 to 15% of babies allergic to cow's milk will also react to soy. The majority of children outgrow milk allergy, but for about 0.4% the condition persists into adulthood. Oral immunotherapy is being researched, but it is of unclear benefit.

    I have to say that I had my reservations about this cheese. I've made things in the past that used tofu and they were miserable failures. if you've ever just been served a slab of tofu, warmed slightly with no attempt made to do anything with it, not even drain it properly then you'll...

    Recipe Roasted Okra with Spiced Tomato

    This is a fairly straightforward recipe to make. I'd not tried roasting okra before and I think it does add a little nuttiness to their taste. Keeping them whole and not trimming off too much stalk prevents sliminess. I found the okra cooked in just over 10 minutes. Any more and they would have...

    Recipe (Vegan) Baked Almond Nut Cheese (Feta Style)

    I have to say that this is the first cheese that I've made using almond nuts and I rather like it. The cheese is meant to be similar to a feta and in some ways I guess it is but I personally won't user the word feta to describe it. It does, however, have a really nice clean taste to it. It...
