This is the reason, we do not use any milk products for making our delightful Casein Free cake. We always keep your long term health ahead of our financial gains.
Milk contains casein. Casein is the name for a family of related phosphoproteins. These proteins are commonly found in mammalian milk, making up 80% of the proteins in cow milk and other dairy products made from cow’s milk. However, some research has shown that this type of protein has hidden dangers. Several people are allergic to casein.
A casein allergy occurs when your body’s immune system mistakenly thinks that the protein is harmful and inappropriately produces allergic (IgE) antibodies for protection. The interaction between these antibodies and the specific protein triggers the release of body chemicals such as histamine that cause symptoms which may include:
•Swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue, face, or throat
•Skin reactions such as hives, a rash, or red, itchy skin
•Nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, coughing, or wheezing
The most serious reaction to milk allergy is called anaphylaxis. This is a potentially life threatening reaction that can occur rapidly. Allergy to foods (including casein in milk) is believed to be the leading cause of anaphylaxis outside the hospital setting. People who have asthma in addition to a serious food allergy to an item, such as casein, are at greater risk for worse outcomes if they suffer an exposure and develop an anaphylactic reaction.
Symptoms such as swelling inside your mouth, chest pain, hives or difficulty breathing within minutes of consuming a milk product may mean you are experiencing an anaphylactic reaction and need emergency medical attention.
That is the reason we only sell Casein Free cake and lose some business as some of the customer we speak to want cake only with icing with cream.
