Find Out How We Can Live Happily With Egg Allergy
how dangerous is it actually ? The reaction to egg allergy can
be different, but the most severe and dangerous one is
anaphylaxis. Therefore, keep your
loved ones away from the dangerous
attack by keeping on reading with me the whole stories about egg
According to Wikipedia, egg allergy is
type of food allergy. It is a hypersensitivity to dietary
substances from the yolk or whites of eggs, causing an
overreaction of the immune system which may lead to severe
physical symptoms for millions of people around the world.”
Egg allergy is
a condition when a person who has egg allergy have his/her
immune system overreacts to proteins in the egg. The reaction could only
be to white egg, or in some cases, also in the yolk egg.
This is what
really happens in your body: the immune system responds by creating
specific antibodies to that food, which are designed to fight off the
“stranger”. These antibodies — called
(IgE) — trigger the release of certain chemicals into the body. So when
someone with egg allergy eats food that contains eggs, the immune system
unleashes chemicals to protect the body. The release of these chemicals
can affect the respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, skin, and the
cardiovascular system — causing egg allergy symptoms like wheezing,
nausea, headache, stomach-ache, and itchy hives.
Egg Allergy Diet
I also have
egg allergy, and the first symptoms is usually swelling around my
throat, then becomes airways infection. That makes me going on a
strictly diet with no egg in my menu. And, trust me, it’s not easy!
Because most of foods in deli or supermarket such as cakes, bread,
cookies, ice cream, puddings, even salad dressing use eggs as one of the
ingredients. The solution? My mother (she also had egg allergy and
asthma – find out more about this in my About Me
page) tried to create a homemade pudding with no egg, which both of us
can enjoy together, and which I’m now happy to share it with you…

But if you
want to bake your own cakes for your lovely families who have egg
allergy, these are several alternatives to substitute egg,
baking powder + 1 tablespoon liquid + 1 tablespoon vinegar
yeast dissolved in ¼ cup warm water
tablespoons water + 1½ tablespoons oil + 1 teaspoon baking powder
gelatin + 2 tablespoons warm water (don't mix until ready to use)
tablespoon pureed fruit such as apricots or bananas
substitutes for no more than 3 eggs in the original recipe.
When you eat
in restaurants, always ask the waiter or the chef about egg contents in
food you’d like to order. When you buy foods in the market, always read
the content labels very thoroughly.
