Hello the greedy
I propose in this article the list of 14 allergens and their alternatives
How and by what to replace them.
More and more people are having more and more food allergies and wondering how to avoid them or replace them if possible
Managing allergies at home
Few meals with friends or family without having to juggle each other's allergies, when it's not gluten-free, it's lactose-free, sugar-free, egg-free… and sometimes it's hard to reconcile everything.
But now, when you're allergic to them, how do you replace them? How can you find the pleasure of a financier or a Paris-Brest without ending up in the emergency room?
Provided you are not allergic to other allergens at the same time, which is often the case. This table will help you choose your replacement products
For some of the alternative products, I also took into account the needs of protein, fibre and essential fatty acids. This is particularly the case for fish, crustaceans, eggs
Various allergic reactions
Of course, depending on the degree of allergic reaction, which ranges from simple skin redness to anaphylactic shock, I recommend that you also avoid eating foods from the same family. This is particularly the case for celery and mustard.
I'll give you a list of the 14 allergens and their alternatives
