AllerNote products are food allergy warning alerts designed to provide food service workers with a heightened awareness of the seriousness of your allergy- affording you peace of mind so you can enjoy eating away from home. Two types of AllerNote products are available: AllerNote notes and AllerNote Labels. Those that address dairy allergy issues read “No Dairy”. The act of handing over an AllerNote will go one step further in assuring that your explanation will be “taken in hand” and acted upon rather than being ignored. We’ve found them to be very effective.
AllerNote notes are transferable sticky notes that can be attached, removed and attached again without leaving any residue. They are designed to be given to your server as you explain your allergy issue. The AllerNote is an added reminder to your server and other food service workers of your food preparation needs and health concerns. There are 50 AllerNote notes in each matchbook type pad.
AllerNote Labels are semi-permanent, self-adhesive labels that are not easily removed; they are designed for lunch-boxes, notebooks, laptop covers, tumblers and anywhere else where it would be appropriate to draw attention to your allergy issue.
Dairy allergies are overreactions of the body’s immune system to proteins found in animal’s milk. People most often have a reaction to cow’s milk, as it is the most common milk in our diet. A dairy allergy is different from being lactose intolerant; the first is an immune response and reactions usually happen within an hour, while the second is an inability to digest milk and reactions usually occur an hour to a day later. Like most food allergies, it develops early in childhood, but is among the allergies that tend to disappear as the child gets older; this is not the case for everyone. Reactions can include hives, swelling, wheezing, or even the most severe allergic reaction - anaphylaxis, which can result in death if not given immediate medical attention. Alerting restaurant staff of your allergy with AllerNote notes (in addition to providing a full explanation of your allergy issue) can help them to focus on the fact that you must avoid dairy products in your food, and may even result in their offering you milk substitutes like rice milk.
