Baked Goods Containing Milk May Help Children Overcome Milk Allergy

May 23, 2011: 12:12 PM EST
Many children who are allergic to cow’s milk can tolerate heated or baked milk in foods like muffins or cheese pizza. U.S. researchers have now found that introducing baked milk into the diets of allergic children increases their tolerance of cow’s milk. Over 37 months, 88 milk-allergic children were introduced to baked milk in various forms. Of 65 children who were tolerant to baked milk, 60 percent became tolerant of unheated milk. The researcher concluded that “the addition of baked milk to the diet of children tolerating such foods appears to accelerate the development of unheated milk tolerance compared with strict avoidance.”
