That is even more daunting because some food labels are just a generalization of a type of food category surrounding the ingredient. Does that mean that we run the risk of an allergy experience if we choice to eat that product? Most likely, so we choice to heed the warning and stay away from all products that contain that ingredient we are allergic to. This complicates the simple pleasure of food. This complicates the planning, shopping and even cooking of the food we used to once enjoy.
