Milk-Allergic Children Conquer Their Sensitivity Faster With Powdered Milk Protein

December 6, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study involving 30 young patients with moderate to severe milk sensitivity showed that consuming higher doses of milk protein as a dry powder did significantly better than sublingual milk extract in treating the allergies. Giving allergic children increasing doses of liquid milk extract under the tongue has been a strategy for training the immune system to tolerate milk. However, by the end of the two-year trial, half of the patients in the study were able to take eight grams of milk protein — the equivalent of 8 ounces of liquid milk — without any sign of allergic reaction. Most children treated with the dry-milk approach could eventually drink real amounts of milk with fewer and milder reactions over two years.
