dairy allergiesDairy allergies are believed to be the most common of all food related allergies and affect millions of people worldwide.  People who suffer from dairy allergies have to watch their diets very carefully according to their known sensitivities.  More time than not, a diary allergy is confused with milk or lactose intolerance, however an allergy to dairy related products can lead to severe symptoms to include hives, respiratory difficulties and even anaphylactic shock.

Dangers of Dairy Allergies

It is possible for a person who suffers from this form of food allergy to ingest a dairy product in some form and die before reaching a hospital. This type of severe allergy is actually related to the protein found in cow’s milk which can cause a more severe reaction than an intolerance which is normally caused by sugars found in milk. While symptoms of milk intolerance may be uncomfortable, it is normally not life threatening.

Ongoing dairy allergies can damage the digestive tract and cause a deficiency in the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells lining the digestive tract.  Many people mistakenly believe that they can continue to eat dairy products as long as they take an oral digestive aid but usually receive temporary relief. Unfortunately, most continue to suffer from their dairy allergies even though their digestive symptoms have diminished.

It is important for anyone who believes they may have a dairy allergy to go to a doctor specializing in food related allergy testing. Blood tests are usually more accurate but may require skin testing and other methods for a complete diagnosis.

It is imperative to always read food labels and look for possible “milk containing” ingredients. Dairy and milk containing ingredients can be found in a multitude of products that people would not normally associate with dairy. Here is partial list of potential hidden dairy containing ingredients:

  • Ammonium Caseinate
  • Calcium Caseinate
  • Casein
  • Hydrolyzed Casein
  • Demineralized Whey
  • Lactalbumin
  • Lactoferrin
  • Lactoglobulin
  • Magnesium Caseinate
  • Paneer
  • Potassium Caseinate
  • Recaldent
  • Whey Powder
  • Sodium Caseinate
  • Rennet Casein
  • Zinc Caseinate

What is the difference between organic milk, regular milk and soy milk?

My daughter is 1 year old and just had allergy testing done. The testing confirmed that she does have an allergy to milk.  I’ve been introducing her to soy formula with only 1 ounce each of her bottle and been a week now but she still seems to have allergic reactions. I just read that it is also possible to have an allergy to soy milk.  What can I do?

Best Answer:

Yes, an allergic child can have an allergy or become allergic to any milk and at any time. If a child is believed to have allergies, it is always advisable to track all foods and beverages in a journal for the first three years.

It is possible that she would also be allergic to soy since it also considered to be a possible food allergen. However, statistically, soy allergies are rarer than dairy milk allergies. My brother was born allergic to all dairy and my mom substituted rice products for years and he eventually grew out of it.  Rice Dream is one of the best and allergy reactions are very rare if any.

To answer you question about organic and non-organic milk; the distinction should always be made by whether or not the product contains the following ingredients if tested:

  • antibiotics
  • pesticides
  • growth hormones

The dairy cows that the milk is extracted from should also be free of any type of cloning programs to be considered organic. Do not confuse natural with organic as natural have totally different meanings such as no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Also, it is always better to look for certified organic seals on the packaging since the word organic itself does not always guarantee the product to be 100% organic.

Additional Information on Milk Allergies from the AllergyReliefExpert.com Editior-In-Chief

Please keep in mind that any soy product which has been processed in any way can lead to allergies in adults or children. It is therefore a good idea to shy away from all processed soy milk or cheese products for persons which have a tendency toward allergies. Also, consider alternative milk products such as almond milk which is rarely allergic to most individuals.  (Refer to the Related Posts below for more information about this important subject)
