So, in my many many travels of the ever interesting world wide web, I have come across all sorts of resources on food allergies. In an effort to compile them for our San Francisco Food allergy group, I have decided to do some initial organizing here. These are some of the general information sites I have found on my journey. Some I visit frequently, some not so frequently, but perhaps they can be useful for others. Please let me know if you find any other great sites you use.
(Please excuse my unfortunate layout and formatting problems. I am fighting my computer this morning, and unfortunately my computer is winning.)
Summary: Listen to a narrative (using Real Player® ) by FDA scientist Kenneth J. F alci, PhD while viewing a slide show addressing t he FDA's role in regulating allergens in food products. Classifications for food recalls, labeling requirements of allergens, FDA i nspection guidelines, and control measures are reviewed.
Summary: A summary of the key issues surrounding food allergies, including definition, diagnosis, and information for families of allergic individuals.
While all the sites are wonderful, there are a few I would recommend definitely taking a visit to. The Food Allergy and A naphylaxis Network is an obvious classic in the world of food allergy web sites, and they have tons of useful information. If you have peanut allergies, Peanut Allergy com has useful message boards. Other great message boards are Kids with Food Allergies, especially good for multiple allergies, and the Food Allergy Support Message Board with tons of great information. If you need 504 help check out their school section.
