My friend has a birthday soon who is allergic to eggs. Our friend group is planning to take her out to eat but we're not sure what food is likely to be contaminated. Food places sometimes label GF but don't label egg free. When you ask the staff, they can't answer if the manager is not in etc. Sometimes the manager doesn't even know themself.

Do you have any advice?

Thanks !heart

Hi Maddison and welcome,

Despite all the allergen awareness these days food places often don't label their menu choices.

Often, if it's a cafe they purchase their chips in a packet so they're not prepared fresh - that's precisely why the manager doesn't know the ingredients and what they've been exposed to. If they are cooked from raw ingredients, they would know.

I would suggest your friend group to purchase ingredients from a supermarket to have a picnic. Supermarkets have clear labels that by law (check with your country) have to mention allergens.

I hope this helps.

id ring find a specialty cafe or restaurant that cater for allergies. you'd have to be sooo careful with cross contamination too.

Coming from a family of people with a lot of allergies, please check with her first before organising anything. Yeah, not fun or suprising, but she knows how to manage her condition better than anyone. She should still appreciate the thought of you organising something.

& to add to this, some additional egg-free foods may make her feel sick. Check with her first.

Good luck xxx

By walking about the city and asking eateries on foot, I was shocked by the lack of knowledge from staff and managers themselves. They literally do not know the contents of food they're feeding us. I also felt so so sad for my friend who must struggle every time she eats out. Not even salads are safe with their exotic dressings.

Thanks for the suggestion, that's an excellent idea.

Food allergies can be very serious, it depends what part of the spectrum you are on. Pack a picnic basket...better to be safe than sorry.
