An increasing number of people have food allergies or require special diets, and they are dining out more often. As a food service professional, how do you accommodate the needs of these customers? Serving People with Food Allergies: Kitchen Management and Menu Creation brings together a vast store of knowledge and practical advice for people working in the food service industry.

This handy reference contains tools for cooks, managers, and chefs to help them create and modify recipes that meet the needs of people afflicted with multiple food allergies. It discusses the special dietary needs of those with autism, celiac disease, diabetes, lactose intolerance, and phenylketonuria (PKU), as well as diets for people who are vegetarian or vegan.

The former manager of Product Development and Special Diets for Walt Disney World® Resort and an experienced trainer, the author goes through step-by-step processes for the kitchen and front of the house. Reviewing the main foods that cause allergic reactions—eggs, milk, peanuts and tree nuts, fish and shellfish, soy, wheat, and corn—he explains how to identify the ingredients, by-products, and derivatives in food labels. The author provides information on specialty products to enhance menu offerings and reduce liability issues. He also offers ideas on reviewing kitchen procedures to identify ways to prevent cross-contact and cross-contamination of food.

Written for large food service corporations and hotel and restaurant chains to use when training their staff, this book contains information on cooking for and serving those with food allergies and special dietary needs. Using basic terminology, this book is suitable for home cooks as well.

Videos of the author working in the kitchen can be found on his Youtube channel.

Controlling allergens in food is a matter of increasing importance for the food industry, especially in light of recent legislation. Effective handling of allergens depends on identifying allergenic ingredients, creating separate production lines for allergen-free products, and effective labelling to inform consumers about which products are safe to eat. Recent attention has also focused on novel methods to manage allergens in food, for example by reducing allergenicity through the prudent selection of raw food materials and improved processing techniques. This important collection provides a clear introduction to food allergens and allergy and offers a comprehensive review of current research contributing to safer food production with regard to allergens.

Part one discusses the diagnosis of offending foods and how allergens can affect the quality of life. Expanding on these fundamentals, part two reviews the effect of different methods of food processing on allergens and novel technologies which can reduce the potency of allergens or remove them altogether from foods. The final part of the book covers the key area of risk assessment and allergen management to achieve more uniform standards within the industry. Practical strategies to improve consumer acceptance of GM foods are also discussed.

With its distinguished editors and array of international contributors, Managing allergens in food is an essential reference for producers, manufacturers, retailers and all those wishing to improve safety in the food industry.Presents a cohesive summary of recent research into safer food productionDiscusses the effects of food processing on allergensAn international team of editors

The Cure For All Disease is the Owner's Manual for your body.

There is a cure for all disease.

It is 100% Natural and costs only a few dollars each month.

Your body heals you by giving it what it needs and making sure you avoid the poisons that cause all disease.

Water is the very Essence of Life.

Without water there would no Life on this planet.

This is why I believe the quality of your health is equal to the quality of your water.

There are no cures with doctors and the medical profession.

They turned their backs on all cures and all real medicine once drug corporations began manufacturing synthetic man-made chemical "medicines" starting in 1939.

Cures ended with Dr. Jonas Salk's polio vaccine which he gave to mankind for free in 1954.

Poisons cause all disease. Without poisons, even germs and viruses could not make you sick.

All disease requires an acidic body to exist in. Your body becomes acidic by habitual consumption of poisons in your food, drinks and water; such as white flour, white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, red meats and the chlorine and fluoride in your water.

This book teaches you how to reverse the acidity of your body, correct your diet deficiencies and to value Water, the very Essence of Life.

There are also some quick cures for some major diseases like migraines, kidney stones, heartburn and others. These cures may seem like "miracle cures", but they are just science that has been around since man began living on this Earth.

The thing that the Author adds to those centuries of proven healing science is how to recognize and avoid the saturation of poisons that have inundated our food, drinks and water supplies, as well as personal hygiene items.

The Author teaches you how to clean up your current diet and also gives you details on other things you can do to improve your health and speed you on to freedom from disease.

This book was written by a man who cured himself of 10 diseases doctors REFUSE to cure. And did so after doctors said he would be on dialysis or dead by 2009.

Before then, the Author did not know that doctors cure no one.

YOU must decide whether to remain without hope as you have with all doctors - OR...

Learn how to use Natural Science to restore your Natural body to health to rid it of all disease.

For those who choose Life and freedom from sickness, this book was written for YOU!

...A short and to the point book to get you cured of all disease as quickly as possible -
