Celiacs Helping Celiacs Gluten-Free Diet: Grains and Flours This list is intended to be an aid in choosing and enjoying gluten-free foods. Self-management of one’s diet requires awareness of foods’ content by label reading; awareness of foods’ contact with gluten-containing grains; and awareness of foods’ contamination by such grains in storage or preparation. Research on the relationship of celiac disease and food items is still limited. As with the general public, people with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis may also need to consider food allergies. The eight major food allergen groups are: Milk * Eggs * Fish * Crustacean shellfish * Tree nuts * Peanuts * Wheat * Soybeans Self-management is the key to living a full life, gluten-free. Personal application must be based upon understanding one's own tolerances. Explanation of Symbols Consistent with a gluten-free diet at this time. Questionable due to content, contact, or contamination. NOT CONSISTENT WITH A GLUTEN-FREE DIET AT THIS TIME. acorn [Quercus spp.] Sweet edible nut used whole or ground into flour.

These are all IBS triggers, yes, and some of them you will probably have to completely eliminate from your diet. BUT - others can be eaten in small quantities when you follow the How to Eat guidelines coming up, many of the items listed have safer substitutes you can use freely, and there are quite a few tips and tricks you'll soon learn for cooking with the nutritious foods on the list in a safe manner. So take heart, this isn't the end of the world – it's just the beginning of a better diet. Red meat (ground beef, hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, roast beef, pastrami, salami, bologna, pepperoni, corned beef, ham, bacon, sausage, pork chops, and anything else that comes from cows, pigs, sheep, goats, deer, etc. ) Add to Cart Button Diet Kit #2 Eating for IBS, Acacia Can, Peppermint Caps Diet Kit #2
Eating for IBS, Acacia Can, Peppermint Caps $47.84 (20% off $59.80 list price) Item Description Button Items in Cart: QTY Subtotal 0 0 Poultry dark meat and skin (skinless white meat is fine, as is seafood by the way – try to buy organic turkey and chicken) Dairy products (cheese, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, milk, cream, half-and half, ice cream, whipped cream, yogurt, frozen yogurt). Dairy is an Irritable Bowel Syndrome trigger even if you're not lactose intolerant. It's simply not just the lactose. It's also not just the high fat content of most dairy products that can cause your IBS to flare. Even skim and lactose-free dairy can trigger IBS attacks. In addition to fat and lactose, dairy contains components such as the proteins whey and casein, which can cause severe digestion problems. Though yogurt is traditionally recommended as an "easily digestible" dairy product because fermentation has reduced the lactose levels, even non-fat versions contain whey and casein, and should be avoided. Egg yolks (whites are fine, do try to buy organic) Meat, dairy products, and egg yolks are particularly dangerous for all aspects of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In some people their high fat content causes violent, rapid colon spasms and triggers diarrhea. Alternately, for others their heavy animal proteins, complete lack of fiber, and very low water content can lead to drastically slowed colon contractions (or one prolonged colon spasm, which is extremely painful) and severe constipation. No matter what Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms you're prone to, these three categories of foods pose high risks and are really best eliminated from your diet altogether. Other high fat foods to watch out for: French fries Onion rings Fried chicken Corn dogs Anything battered and deep-fried Anything skillet-fried in fat of any kind Shortening Margarine All oils, fats, spreads, etc. Mayonnaise Salad dressings Tartar sauce Cool Whip Coconut milk Shredded coconut Solid chocolate (baking cocoa powder is fine) Solid carob (carob powder is fine) Olives Nuts and nut butters Croissants, pastries, biscuits, scones, and doughnuts Pie crust Potato chips (unless they're baked) Corn chips and nachos (unless they're baked) Store-bought dried bananas (they're almost always deep fried) Fats are usually fairly obvious foods to identify, but not always. The worst culprits are listed above, and many (particularly meat, dairy, egg yolks, and fried foods) can simply be eliminated from your diet entirely and your whole body will be healthier for it. I know the thought of this can be deeply shocking, but giving up these foods does not equal deprivation. Honestly, it doesn't – I promise. There are a great many easy substitutions that will let you cook and eat safely while still enjoying many of your traditional favorite foods. There's also a lot of fun to be had in trying a wide variety of new ones. And when you're tempted to indulge in a dangerous treat, just remember that everything tastes a lot less delicious when it's followed by a vicious IBS attack. There are also some hidden sources of fat to watch out for. Cookies, crackers, pancakes, waffles, French toast, biscuits, scones, pastries, doughnuts, and mashed potatoes can all be sky-high in fat (virtually always so at restaurants), so be careful. Give thanks for the recent fat-free craze that has given us supermarket aisles full of safe alternatives. I certainly would have killed for fat-free Saltines as a kid. Every time I had an attack I was given soda crackers – and I sure wish I'd known then why this so often made me worse, not better. As an aside here, while it's crucial to maintain a low fat diet in order to manage Irritable Bowel Syndrome, it's equally important that you do not go fat free. Though it makes no difference to your gastrocolic reflex if you're eating lard or extra-virgin olive oil, it will make quite a difference to your heart and your health in general. Your body needs healthy fats in order to function. Keep your fat intake to 20% - 25% of your total calories, and make your fats count. They should be monounsaturated and contain essential fatty acids, so choose fat sources such as olive oil, canola oil, avocados, finely ground nuts, fatty fish, flax oil, etc. Because all fats, even heart-healthy choices, are still potential IBS triggers, please follow the Irritable Bowel Syndrome dietary guidelines detailed in How to Eat for IBS. Warning! GI Irritants These foods and beverages offer no IBS benefits but plenty of risks. Avoid them. Coffee ~ both regular AND decaf contain an enzyme that's an extremely powerful GI tract irritant. Go cold turkey today and drink herbal teas instead. Caffeine is a GI stimulant and should be avoided, especially in higher doses. Alcohol is a GI irritant and often triggers IBS attacks, especially on an empty stomach (though small amounts of alcohol used in cooking are fine). Carbonation in soda pop and mineral water can cause bloating and cramps. Artificial sweeteners, particularly sorbitol, can trigger pain, cramps, gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Artificial fats, namely Olestra, can cause abdominal cramping and diarrhea in people who don't even have IBS – imagine what it can do to you. MSG has acquired lots of ugly anecdotal evidence against it regarding all sorts of digestive upsets. It can simply be avoided, so why take a chance? While fats and GI irritants are best reduced or completely eliminated from your diet, there's another crucial component to eating safely for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: understanding the difference betweeen soluble and insoluble fiber. If you're already familiar with how the different fibers can dramatically help (or hurt) IBS, it's time to learn why how you eat is just as important as what you eat.

If you are a healthy adult who is not overweight and who has no family members who are obese, the food pyramid recommendations of the USDA will work fine, as long as you remember that the carbohydrates that are recommended are those contained in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. However, even those who are healthy and who are not overweight can maintain their health and vitality by following a reduced carbohydrate lifestyle. For those who are overweight, or who have diabetes, the low-calorie and low-fat diets recommended by the government do not work well. In fact, for diabetics, they can actually worsen the condition. The only diet that strikes at the real cause of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, hypoglycemia, and type 2 diabetes is a low-carbohydrate diet. Many doctors and nutritionists are now starting to recognize this. There are many different versions of the low-carb diet, such as Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, Protein Power, Neanderthin, The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifestyle Plan, Life Without Bread, and others. All of them, however, have one thing in common -- a very strict reduction in the consumption of carbohydrates. Most low-carb diets replace carbohydrates with fats and proteins. Although diets vary in their recommendations, as a general rule, a low-carb diet is synonymous with a high-fat and moderate protein diet. Those on a low-carb diet should get at least 60 to 70 percent of their daily calorie intake from fat. Carbohydrates should make up less than 10 percent, and in some cases, less than 5 percent of your daily calorie intake. After being told for years to eat a low-fat, high-carbohydrate "balanced" diet, Americans are now the fattest people on Earth, and getting fatter every year! The occurrences of adult-onset diabetes is also increasing. We now know, because research has shown, that fat is not the enemy -- carbohydrates are. On a low-carb diet, you can eat until you're full, as long as you eat only allowed foods. Allowed foods are meats, fish, poultry, eggs, and cheese, plus a limited amount of green vegetables. Stay away from foods that are on the "Not Allowed" list. (View KETO Product List) How does a Low Carb Diet work? Burning Fat Much research has proven that dietary fat is not necessarily converted into body fat. Carbohydrates, on the other hand, are readily converted into fat by the action of insulin. According to many experts, most overweight people became overweight due to a condition called hyperinsulinemia -- elevated insulin levels in the blood. When you eat a high-carbohydrate meal, the increased blood sugar stimulates insulin production by the pancreas. Insulin is the hormone that allows blood sugar to be used by the cells. However, a side effect of insulin is that it also causes fat to be deposited, and it stimulates your brain to produce hunger signals. So what do you do? You eat more carbohydrates, and the cycle repeats. In time, your body cells become resistant to insulin, meaning that your pancreas has to work overtime, producing up to four or five times as much insulin just to keep up with the demand. It has been shown that high levels of insulin have a deleterious effect on the body, including premature aging. Restricting the intake of carbohydrates puts a halt to this vicious cycle. When you restrict your carbohydrate intake, your insulin levels decrease and the levels of glucagon increase. Glucagon is a hormone that causes body fat to be burned and cholesterol to be removed from deposits in the arteries. If you severely restrict carbs, your body goes into a state of ketosis--burning fat with the subsequent production of ketone bodies in the bloodstream. The condition is called "ketonuria" if ketones are spilled out into the urine. The result of ketosis is that your blood sugar levels stabilize; your insulin level drops; and because your body is burning fat, you lose weight! When your diet causes your body to go into a state of ketosis, you are said to be on a ketogenic diet. For most people, restricting your carbohydrate intake to fewer than 30 grams a day will induce ketonuria. Most people on ketogenic diets lose weight fairly quickly. However, although some diet experts believe that ketosis is a safe condition, it is not necessary to be in ketosis to lose weight. Keep in mind, however, that when you choose a higher level of carbohydrates than what is needed to bring on ketosis, you may have to limit your total food intake (calories) somewhat in order to lose weight. Also, for diabetics who are not obese, it certainly is not necessary to induce ketosis to reap the benefits of a low-carb diet. It is quite possible to bring your blood glucose levels under control without being in ketosis. However, if you must lose considerable weight, a ketogenic diet is the most efficient method for bringing your weight back down to where it should be. (View KETO Product List) What are the benefits of a Low Carb Diet? A Healthy Way to Lose Weight In general, on a low-carb diet it is not necessary to count calories. Eat all you want, as often as you want, in order to prevent hunger. Don't stuff yourself, just eat until you're no longer hungry. Remember, there is a difference between being hungry and having an appetite. Hungar means your body needs more food, so you need to eat. Having an appetite means you have the feeling that you want to eat, whether your body needs more food or not. In some cases, for those who are metabolically resistant, reducing total food intake may help to stimulate or maintain weight loss. But it's the carbs, not the total calories that must be kept low. Because you are consuming fats and oils, your appetite stays under control, because fatty foods are very satisfying. Eating a high level of fat actually causes you to lose weight faster than if you were fasting! That is because, during a fast, your body thinks it is starving, so it kicks into a very high efficiency state of metabolism. This slows down weight loss. But with a high fat diet, combined with very low amounts of carbohydrates, your body knows it is not starving, and metabolism is maintained at a normal level. Although consuming fats is necessary for a healthy diet, try to limit consumption of trans-fats (margarine and shortening). Good fats include olive oil, flax seed oil, canola oil, oils found in nuts, and also real butter. Most fats should be the monounsaturated and saturated fats. Avoid the polyunsaturated fats when possible, except for those containing the essential omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish. But isn't a low-carb diet high in protein and doesn't eating a lot of protein damage the kidneys? First of all, a low-carb diet is not necessarily a high protein diet. It's an adequate protein diet. It's primarily a high fat diet. But the answer to the second part of the question is no, there is no evidence that eating lots of protein will damage healthy kidneys. Advantages of Low-Carbing * Sustained weight loss * Stabilized blood sugar (especially important for diabetics) * Lower insulin levels * Better blood lipid profile (low cholesterol) * Lowered blood pressure * More energy Vitamins and Minerals But isn't a low-carb diet deficient in vitamins and minerals that are found in fresh fruits and vegetables? A low-carb lifestyle used to control diabetes and not to lose weight can be quite balanced--just stay away from refined carbohydrates. However, most low-carb diets used for weight loss are not "balanced" in terms of providing all the essential micronutrients. That is why it is extremely important to supplement your diet with good-quality vitamin and mineral products. It is also important to take a fiber supplement. Look at it this way: All your life your body has been constantly subjected to high "doses" of sugar, in the form of refined carbohydrates. Your body recognizes only one carbohydrate -- sugar. All carbohydrates you eat, except fiber, are converted into sugar. Eating a diet that is 70% carbohydrates means that most of what you eat is sugar. That type of diet is also unbalanced. The purpose of a low-carb diet is to bring your body chemistry and insulin sensitivity back into balance. To do that, you must eat a diet that is unbalanced in the opposite direction of they way you have been eating for years. Once the weight is off, and your blood chemistry, blood pressure, and energy levels are back in the normal range, then you may start adding some more complex carbohydrates back into your diet. By eating a moderate amount of foods like vegetables and berries, and a limited amount of grain products, such as whole-grain breads and beans, your diet will then be balanced and you can stop taking the supplements, if you wish. Besides, the low-carb diet is not as unbalanced as you might think. Meats, butter, nuts, cheese, and eggs contain a lot of essential vitamins and minerals. (View KETO Product List) What are the Main Points? Guidelines to Follow when Lowcarbing... * Limit carbohydrates to no more than 10 percent of your daily calorie intake * Eat only allowed foods * Eat NO foods that contain sugar or white flour * Be aware of "hidden" sugars and carbohydrates * Cut out caffeine * Take fiber supplements (psyllium husks are good) * Take vitamin and mineral supplements * Drink LOTS of water * See your health care professional before starting any diet (View KETO Product List) Who Should Follow a Low-Carb Lifestyle? Your Mileage May Vary One of the most common short-hand notations found on most diet newsgroups is YMMV (Your mileage may vary)! And this is most certainly true of the low-carbohydrate way of eating. Not everyone will lose weight at the same speed. Some people reach plateaus in their weight loss (as with other diets). And some people experience some minor "withdrawal symptoms" as their bodies adjust to using fat for energy instead of carbs. Most of the negative side effects reported, such as tiredness, constipation, diarrhea, or headaches are only temporary. Most will disappear in a week or so. Some authors advise starting the diet slowly, by gradually reducing the number of carbs in order to minimize side effects. For most people, however, going "cold turkey" is the best approach. So who should follow the low-carb lifestyle? Well, it wouldn't hurt for anyone who wants to lose weight to give it a try. But those who have developed hyperinsulinemia are perfect candidates for the low-carb diet. In fact, a low-carb diet is the ONLY treatment for hyperinsulinemia. Hyperinsulinemia usually leads to insulin resistance and its associated symptoms and disorders. It is often called Syndrome X. Syndrome X Syndrome X is manifested by some or all of the following symptoms and conditions: * Hypoglycemia * High blood pressure * High LDL cholesterol * High triglycerides * Anxiety/Panic disorder * Irritable bowel syndrome * Binge eating * Digestive disorders * Obesity * Heart disease * Type 2 diabetes If you have any of these symptoms or conditions, a low-carb diet may be the best treatment. In fact, it is the only way to actually treat the CAUSE of all these symptoms and conditions -- hyperinsulinemia. Medications and other diets can only treat the symptoms themselves, not the underlying cause. Is there anyone who should not try a low-carb diet? Recent scientific studies have shown that a low-carb diet is safe and effective. Therefore, anyone who desires to lose weight or who needs to bring their blood chemistry back into line, should try a low-carb lifestyle. However, there are those who, for whatever reason, cannot stick with the low-carb diet. It is very difficult (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low-carb diet. Also, those who just do not like a lot of meat, eggs, and cheese may find this way of eating difficult to stick with for a long time. But for those who love steaks, shrimp, fish, chicken, omelets, cheese, and pork chops, and who don't mind giving up the bread, potatoes, and desserts, the low-carb alternative can easily become a life-long way of eating -- especially since your cravings for the high-carbohydrate foods will go away after a couple of weeks of low-carb eating.

Food allergies/Food intolerance Some people have an intolerance or allergy to certain foods which means that if they eat that food it can make them ill. There are a range of foods and food ingredients which can cause allergic reactions in some people the most common of which are cow's milk, eggs, soya, wheat, fish, shellfish and nuts. The Co-op is committed to helping customers with special dietary needs as follows: (click on a title to find out more). Contact customer relations on 0800 0686 727 for 'free from products' lists. * Allergy Labelling Policy * "Free From" Co-op brand product lists * Milk Free Diet * Soya Free Diet * Egg Free Diet * Wheat Free Diet * Nut Free Diet * Special Dietary Requirements * Nickel Allergy and Kettles * Useful Contacts Allergy labelling To help customers with food allergies the Co-op now add an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list, which highlights the presence of any of the most common allergens, nuts, sesame seeds, eggs, fish, crustacea, molluscs, shellfish, cows milk, gluten or soya will all be shown. If any ingredient or compound product can be linked to one of these allergens (e.g. whey or cheese in the case of milk) then they will be listed too, e.g. 'contains cows milk' will be on foods which contain whey. Allergy labelling was introduced from spring 2000 on label re-designs and new products. However, it will be some time before this labelling is on all products, so continue to check the ingredients list. "Free From" lists of Co-op brand products (e.g. egg free Co-op products) are also available to make shopping easier (include link to section). For the most dangerous allergens (nuts and sesame seeds) we also label if there is a danger of cross contamination. Therefore if a product does not contain nuts or sesame seeds, but has been produced in a factory that uses these and there is a danger of cross contamination, this will be indicated by one of the following statements: PRODUCED IN A FACTORY HANDLING NUTS or PRODUCED IN A FACTORY HANDLING SESAME SEEDS or PRODUCED IN A FACTORY HANDLING NUTS AND SESAME SEEDS n addition, because young children may develop a nut allergy if they are exposed to an excess of nuts at a very early age, the following wording will be used on certain products: ALLERGY ADVICE: To help prevent nut allergy, if your family has a history of allergy or asthma, do not eat a lot of nuts when pregnant or breast feeding. Young children should also avoid nuts. For culinary nuts, the following warning will appear on all packs, due to the slight risk of contamination from other nuts: ALLERGY ADVICE: May contain minute traces of other nuts "Free From" Co-op brand product lists As everyday basic foods such as milk, egg, wheat etc are used in producing many manufactured foods, it can prove difficult and time consuming when shopping to identify products which are free from a problem ingredient(s). The Co-op therefore produce a number of "free from lists" which identify which Co-op products are suitable for certain special diets. The "free from lists" available are: Wheat Free Soya Free Egg Free Milk Free Additive Free Azo Free Gluten Free Nut Free Preservative Free Yeast Free Contains Nuts and or sesame Seeds Suitable for Vegetarians Suitable for Vegans Non Food Products - which do not contain animal by-products Organic Products and are available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org Advice on using "Free From" lists: * Ingredients and manufacturing procedures do change from time to time and so you should ALWAYS check the ingredients list. * Information on a product label is specific to that product and so you should check the labels of different sizes or different flavours of any product. * You should carefully check any product with a "New Recipe" flash as the change to the recipe could mean that it is no longer suitable for certain allergies. * Remember cutting too many foods out of the diet without adequate nutritional replacement can result in inadequate nutrition. You should consult your GP if you believe you have a food allergy. A free from list (if being used to treat a medical condition) should be used in conjunction with dietary advice from a qualified person, e.g. your GP or State Registered Dietician. * We would suggest you renew your list at least once a year. Milk Free Diet A cows milk free diet involves avoiding cows milk and other dairy products such as cheese, butter, yoghurt and cream. Milk is an important part of our diet as it provides a good source of protein, calcium and other vitamins and minerals. It is therefore important that there is still an adequate intake of these nutrients from other foods (such as fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds). Many manufactured products contain milk and it can be difficult to distinguish which products do not contain milk. Milk free products should not contain the following: * Butter * Butterfat * Buttermilk * Caseinates * Cheese * Cheese powder * Cottage Cheese * Cream * Dried Milk * Dried Whey * Lactic Acid (if from milk) * Lactose (a milk sugar) * Margarine (containing whey) * Milk (whole / semi-skimmed / skimmed) * (Milk) chocolate * Milk Powder * Milk Protein * Sodium Caseinates * Sweetened condensed milk * Toffee * Whey * Whey Protein * Whey Solids * Yoghurt To help customers with milk allergies the presence of cows milk (or milk derived ingredients e.g. cheese or whey) will be highlighted on Co-op brand products by "CONTAINS COWS MILK" in an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list. Link to Allergy Labelling Policy A full list of free from products is available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at email@example.com Soya Free Diet People who are allergic to soya must not include it in their diet. Soya is used as an ingredient in a wide range of foods. The following products should be avoided on a soya free diet: * Autolysed Protein (if from a soya source) * De-fatted soya flour * Hydrolysed vegetable protein (if from a soya source) * Lecithin (E322 - from a soya source) * Soy Sauce * Soya flour * Soya grits * Soya protein * Soya protein concentrate * Soya protein isolate * Textured soya * Textured vegetable protein (if from a soya source) * Worcester sauce (often contains soya) To help customers with soya allergies the presence of soya (or soya derived ingredients) will be highlighted on Co-op brand products by "CONTAINS SOYA" in an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list. Link to Allergy Labelling Policy A full list of free from products is available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org Egg Free Diet An egg free diet involves avoiding eggs and egg products. This can prove to be difficult as eggs are used in many manufactured products and it is difficult to determine which contain eggs and which do not. Products that may contain egg include: Mayonnaise, salad cream, pasta, ice-cream, custard, Quorn, biscuits, cakes, quiche, meringues etc. Egg free products should not contain the following: * Egg white * Egg yolk * Albumen * Ovalbumin * Emulsifier (lecithin if from an egg source) * Egg powder To help customers with egg allergies the presence of egg (or egg derived ingredients e.g. albumen) will be highlighted on Co-op brand products by "CONTAINS EGG" in an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list. Link to Allergy Labelling Policy A full list of free from products is available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at email@example.com Wheat Free Diet There are two reasons why some people avoid wheat, one is due to wheat allergy or food intolerance, the other is a sensitivity to the protein gluten which is found in wheat, rye, barley and oats and this is called Coeliac disease. Wheat Allergy Wheat allergy sufferers are sensitive to the wheat whole grain and this condition can give symptoms such as asthma, itchy skin and diarrhoea. Coeliac Disease Coeliac Disease is a sensitivity to the protein gluten, which causes damage to the lining of the small intestine and therefore reduces the absorption of nutrients from food. This protein can also be found in barley, oats and rye, however, it varies between coeliacs as to what can be tolerated, for example, some coeliacs can eat oats without any symptoms. Products containing the following should NOT be eaten if following a wheat free diet: * Breadcrumbs * Crumbs * Croutons * Durum Wheat * English Mustard (may contain wheat) * Liquorice (may contain wheat) * Macaroni * Modified (wheat) starch * Noodles * Pasta * Rusk * Semolina * Soy Sauce (may contain wheat) * Spaghetti * Suet (wheat flour may be added to keep shredded suet free flowing) * Wheat * Wheat Bran * Wheat Flakes * Wheat flour * (Wheat) Starch * Wholemeal/Wholewheat To help customers with Coeliac disease or who have an allergy to wheat the presence of gluten will be highlighted on Co-op brand products by "CONTAINS GLUTEN" in an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list. Link to Allergy Labelling Policy A full list of free from products is available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org Nut Free Diet People who are allergic to nuts must avoid all nuts and nut products from their diet. The following are types of nuts: * Almond * Brazil * Cashew * Chestnut * Cobnut * Hazelnut * Macadamia Nut * Peanut * Pecan * Pistachio * Walnut Obvious foods to be avoided have the name of the nut mentioned in their name e.g. peanut butter, but for other products it is not so obvious. For a nut allergy sufferer even if the product does not contain nuts but is made in the same factory as something that does there is a possibility of cross contamination which could be fatal. To help customers with nut allergies the presence of nuts will be highlighted on Co-op brand products by "CONTAINS NUTS" in an Allergy Advice box under the ingredients list. We also label if there is a danger of cross contamination by the following statement which will also appear in the allergy advice box: "PRODUCED IN A FACTORY HANDLING NUTS". In addition, because young children may develop a nut allergy if they are exposed to an excess of nuts at a very early age, the following wording will be used on certain products: ALLERGY ADVICE: To help prevent nut allergy, if your family has a history of allergy or asthma, do not eat a lot of nuts when pregnant or breast feeding. Young children should also avoid nuts. For culinary nuts, the following warning will appear on all packs, due to the slight risk of contamination from other nuts: ALLERGY ADVICE: May contain minute traces of other nuts Link to Allergy Labelling Policy A full list of free from products is available by contacting customer relations on 0800 0686 727 or e-mail us at email@example.com Special Dietary Requirements Product guide This list has been compiled from information held on the Co-op Nutrition Database, and at the date of publication the information is believed to be correct.

Nickel Allergy and Kettles The Food Standards Agency has issued advice to people whose skin reacts to nickel to choose kettles with either a stainless steel element or a 'flatbed' kettle without an exposed element. This is as a result of a study carried out by the Drinking Water Inspectorate looking at the level of nickel in tap water boiled in domestic kettles. The study indicates that * levels are highest in water boiled in new kettles * nickel levels tend to decrease as the kettle is used over time * the nickel content of water boiled in some types of exposed element kettles is higher Whilst not a health risk for most people, nickel can make skin problems worse for people who have nickel allergic dermatitis. Useful contacts: The Food Standards Agency has introduced a section on its website all about food intolerance. It provides information on 24 different types of food intolerance and includes some background information on why people get allergies and how to deal with them.
