Food Allergy & Gluten-Free Training

 Food Allergy & Gluten-Free Training by AllerTrain

 

About 

Food allergies affect about 2 percent of adults and 4 to 8 percent of children in the United States. Each year in the U.S., it is estimated that anaphylaxis to food results in 30,000 emergency room visits, 2,000 hospitalizations, and 150 deaths. A food allergy is a specific type of adverse food reaction involving the immune system. The body produces what is called an allergic, or immunoglobulin E (IgE), antibody to a food. Once a specific food is ingested and binds with the IgE antibody, an allergic reaction ensues.

Required Training

Montgomery County, Maryland and the states of Illinois and Michigan were the first states to require ANSI accredited food allergy awareness training for all food managers. As of right now, it is suggested that all other states follow suit to get ahead of the curve and to help protect your customers.

 Training Options

Online and in-person training is available and there are many training options for schools, universities, restaurants, manufacturing, etc.  Listed below are the courses available and information about them.  Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an in-person training.

In addition to AllerTrain and Allertrain Lite (listed below), we offer AllerTrain K12 for primary and secondary schools, AllerTrain U for college and university settings, AllerChef for chefs, AllerTrain RA for college or university resident assistants, Allertrain for Food Manufactures, and AllerTrain Mini, which is a food allergy emergency response training course, designed for those who don’t necessarily serve or handle food, but may need to know what a food allergy is and how to handle an allergic reaction (i.e. bus drivers, teachers, flight attendants, volunteers etc.).
