Families with a history of food allergies love our product because it arrives in a box containing individually sealed, foil-lined packets of pre-measured powder. These packets are designed to be easily poured directly into your baby’s bottle or mixed into solid food without unintentional contact with the powder itself, significantly reducing the chance of cross-contamination and exposure of at-risk family members to the allergens. The allergen proteins are gently introduced one-at-a-time to safely and easily monitor the cause of any potential reaction. Here are 9 great tips on how to safely introduce allergenic foods when living with others who have a food allergy.
Our mission is to provide the peace of mind all parents need when introducing your child to allergenic food, as the USDA Dietary Guideline Report recommends, it is best to start early allergen introduction as early as 4 months old.
Rest assured that early allergen introduction is inherently safe. Dr. Jonathan Spergel, Head of Allergy at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia explains that "babies have the fewest severe allergic reactions of any age group, with the severity of allergic reactions increasing as the child gets older, by the two different severity scales," which is why we recommend beginning early allergen introduction for all children as early as 4 months of age.
