Health Tip: Preventing Food Allergies While Dining Out

Posted November 10, 2017

(HealthDay News) -- If you have food allergies and plan to eat out, it's important to remember that the beverages you drink may also be a source of the sniffles or more serious reactions.

The American Academy of Food Allergy Asthma & Immunology offers these suggestions:
  • Do not share beverages with others, since they may have eaten a food to which you're allergic.
  • Make sure the bar uses clean utensils and appliances to prepare your drink.
  • Ask about all ingredients that are added to your drink.
  • Be conscious of sulfides that may be included in your drink. These preservatives can trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions. Sulfides may be found in beer, wine, ciders and mixed drinks.
