When planning and organising catering for an event it is important to bear in mind people with food allergies or intolerances. There is an increasing prevalence of food allergy and intolerance in the general public and the chances for one or more of your guests suffering from some sort of food allergy is quite high.
It’s essential that your guests gives prior notice about their food allergy or intolerances, so you and your catering company can create a menu that suits your guests specific needs.
You want all of your guests to enjoy similar dishes, respecting the guests with food allergy by avoiding singling people out with special menus. At Devour It Catering, we cater for people with food allergies by adjusting many recipes and creating delicious versions of dishes without including ingredients that are known allergens.
Common Food Allergens
Almost any food is capable of causing an allergic reaction. However, the most common food allergens include milk, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, sesame, wheat and soy products. Alarmingly, studies show that almost half the Australian population have a predisposition to Coeliac disease, which is hypersensitivity towards gluten.
All of the above may create a serious allergic reaction that can be life threatening. Selecting a catering company in Melbourne that takes food allergies and intolerances seriously and that caters to you and your guests requirements is important.
