Hidden sources of allergens
When you check an “exclude” box in our Advanced Recipe Search tool, the recipes listed in the search results will contain no obvious sources of the noted allergen, but any of them may contain hidden sources. Below is a chart we’ve created using information from Health Canada that provides some information on hidden sources of food allergens. This chart is not exhaustive, so if you have a food allergy, speak to your physician and/or a registered dietitian for a comprehensive list of foods and their derivatives to avoid.

Check food labels
When preparing our recipes, check the food label for each ingredient as food allergens and their derivatives may be present.

Note: These food lists are not complete and may change. Always read the ingredient list carefully for all food products prior to consumption. Allergens and their derivatives can have various names and may be present in some food brands but not others. If the ingredient list is not available on the food product, check with the food manufacturer, or do not consume the product. If you have a food allergy, speak to your physician and/or a registered dietitian for a comprehensive list of foods and their derivatives to avoid.
