Tolerance Against Dairy Allergies With Baked Milk In Foods!
Parents of children with dairy allergies can heave a sigh of relief now! According to a recent study conducted by a group of researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine’s Jaffe Food Allergy Institute, children who are allergic to dairy products can outgrow it by increasing the quantity of foods that contain baked milk in their diet.
The study involved 88 children who were diagnosed with milk allergy and aged between 2 and 17 years. Their tolerance to foods consisting of baked milk such as waffles, muffins and cookies was evaluated.
High temperatures during the process of baking break down the proteins in milk, reducing the allergenicity.
During the 5 year span of this study, children were progressively introduced to less heated milk forms after a series of food challenges. By the end of the study, 47% of the children did not show any allergy symptoms and could tolerate yogurt, skimmed milk and ice cream, the unheated milk products.
