Allergies, Allergens AND E NUMBERS

Recognize some of the symptoms and how to tackle them


If you are suffering from any of the following, then maybe you have an allergy.  Keeping things clean and dust free is the best start to ridding yourself and your boat of allergens.  Many people suffer from food allergies, so knowing what is affecting you is of prime importance.  A visit to the doctor is highly recommended.  It might be wise to know the phone number and location of a local doctor.

What to Do If Symptoms Occur

The food(s) that caused these symptoms should be avoided, and the affected person should contact a doctor or health care provider for appropriate testing and evaluation.

Keep a food diary, diligence is what counts here, write down everything you eat and drink, and at what time.  It might also be useful to write down what chemicals you are using or are in your vicinity.  It could be that the answer to your problems will jump out of the page at you - it costs nothing to try, and could save a lot of grief.

Persons found to have a food allergy should be taught to read labels and avoid the offending foods. They should also be taught, in case of accidental ingestion, to recognize the early symptoms of an allergic reaction, and be properly educated on — and armed with — appropriate treatment measures.
Persons with a known food allergy who begin experiencing symptoms while, or after eating a food should initiate treatment immediately, and go to a nearby emergency room if symptoms progress.

Fact - Allergies can Kill

Following ingestion of a food allergen(s), a person with food allergies can experience a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.

If a crew member states they have severe allergies to products such as peanuts, take note and do not take risks - read this account of a death from anaphylaxis due to a restaurant's negligence. 

This can lead to:

constricted airways in the lungs
severe lowering of blood pressure and shock ("anaphylactic shock")
suffocation by swelling of the throat

Prompt administration of epinephrine by autoinjector (e.g., Epi-pen) during early symptoms of anaphylaxis may help prevent these serious consequences.  Some boats carry epi-pens in their first aid kits, talk to your medical practitioner.


Over the counter remedies are very popular, so have a chat with your local pharmacist, alternatively try a natural remedy.

These simple natural remedies can be very effective for allergy relief. Different people seem to benefit from different remedies, so it might be worth trying more than one of these to see which works best.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is an age old remedy that is often suggested for a variety of health conditions.  The theory is that its ability to reduce mucous production and cleanse the lymphatic system makes it useful for allergies. It is also said to help digestion, weight loss and more, so it is worth a try!

Method: Mix a teaspoon of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with water and drank this three times a day. This can help with relief of acute allergy symptoms and seems to help prevent allergy attacks as well.

Neti Pot and Saline Rinse

The basic theory is that you use a Neti Pot filled with a sterile saline solution to flush out the sinuses of allergens and irritations.  This recommended by conventional and alternative doctors, and it seems that it doesn’t really have a downside.

Method: Either use a pre-made saline rinse or make your own by dissolving 1 teaspoon of sea salt (no, not the stuff around the boat) in a quart of boiled distilled water. Cool completely and put in the pot. Pour through one nostril and let it drain out the other.  Oh what fun!

Quercetin

Quercetin is a natural bioflavonoid that is said to help stabilize mast cells to keep them from releasing histamine. It is also a potent antioxidant that is said to help reduce inflammation. It is best used as a long term remedy.

As with any herb, you should check with your doctor before using, especially if you have a liver problem, are pregnant,  or are on hormonal contraceptives.

Method: Though Quercetin is naturally found in foods like citrus and broccoli, it is very difficult to get the amount needed to relive allergies from food alone. A supplemental dose can be helpful for preventing allergies or helping acute symptoms. Not recommended during pregnancy or nursing though some practitioners feel it is safe after the first trimester.

Nettle Leaf

Nettle leaf is another natural antihistamine that can be very effective as it naturally blocks the body’s ability to produce histamine. It grows in many places and can be made in to a tincture or tea, but for allergy relief, capsules made from dried nettle leaves are the easiest and most effective option.

Nettle leaf can also be used in combination with other herbs to make a soothing herbal tea for allergy relief. It is often mixed with peppermint leaf and sometimes red raspberry leaf to make a refreshing allergy relief tea.

Probiotics

Allergies are the result of an imbalance in the immune system that causes the body to react too strongly to a stimuli. New research links the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut with reduced incidence of allergies. Evidence is even emerging that a mother’s gut bacteria during pregnancy and nursing can impact a child’s likelihood of getting allergies throughout life.

While we can’t do much about our mothers’ diets while they were pregnant, balancing gut bacteria now and consuming enough beneficial bacteria can have a positive effect on allergies now. Fermented foods and drinks like Kombucha or Kefir can hep boost gut bacteria, as can a high quality probiotic capsule.

Local Honey

There isn’t much scientific evidence to back this one, but there seems to be a lot of anecdotal evidence from people who have tried it. The theory is that consuming local honey from where you live will help your body adapt to the allergens in the environment there. This is supposed to work like a natural allergy “shot” and doesn’t seem to have a downside.

Diet Changes

If all else fails, sometimes dietary changes can be the answer to allergy problems.

E Numbers

 

As it's highly likely that you'll have consumed a food product with an E number listed on the label at some point, you may have asked:

  • What are E Numbers?
  • Are they all bad?
  • Which ones should I really try to avoid?

What is an E Number?

The E number that you see on food labels is a number assigned to food additives which have been checked and listed (mostly as safe to use) in the European Union. The numbers refer to:
  • colors
  • flavoring agents
  • preservatives
  • anti-oxidants
  • sweeteners
  • gelling agents
  • emulsifiers

Are All E Numbers Bad for Me?

No, not all  E numbers are bad. The letter E (for Europe) together with its number, simply means it's been tested by the powers-that-be in the EU and gives it an easily identifiable code to make it easy to look up. Natural substances like vitamin C (E300), paprika (E160c) and even oxygen (E948) each have an E Number assigned to them, along with many other naturally occurring substances.

All added preservatives have been tested (and therefore have E numbers) and most are safe in small amounts (within ascribed recommended daily intake limits) and - rather than being 'bad' chemicals - have actually helped to remove the threat of serious food poisoning such as that caused by botulism.

Many people are concerned about the long-term effects of consuming certain 'E numbers' and especially the effect they could have on children. 'E numbers' do go through lengthy testing processes before being unleashed on the public, but some have proven links to negative side effects on certain consumer groups. Often though it’s because a person is particularly sensitive to an ingredient or element within that chemical, or because it exacerbates an existing condition they have.


Choosing the top E numbers worth avoiding is a bit tricky, as there are lots that it would be ideal to avoid if you’re concerned about your health.

  • E102 – tartrazine
  • E122 – carmoisine
  • E129 – allura red
  • E104 – quinoline yellow
These colors have suspected links to hyperactivity in children and while they are still permitted under EU legislation, the FSA (Food Standards Agency) recommends that UK manufacturers no longer include them in their food products. Food and drink supplied to the EU which contain these additives, must include the following information

" Name or E number of the color(s)’: may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children."

If you spot any food items (especially those aimed at children), which contain any of the above E numbers and do not show the warning, contact the Food Standards Agency.

E Numbers To Avoid

The following are still ones you may prefer to avoid:

E621 – monosodium glutamate

Otherwise known as MSG, Monosodium Glutamate, E621 is a flavor enhancer that’s commonly used to pep up food products and make them taste better. Unfortunately, it is known to cause problems for some people – and certain people seem to more sensitive to its effects than others. Amongst the known side effects, MSG can cause symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, muscle pain, palpitations and even pain.

E951 – aspartame

Aspartame, E951 is an artificial sweetener that’s commonly used as a sweetening ingredient. In particular, it’s often found in products aimed at dieters or diabetics, such as desserts, low-fat foods, low sugar drinks, snacks and sweets. It’s well known to be linked to problems in people who suffer from the condition PKU, and they are well advised to avoid it completely. But aspartame has become a concern to other people too and side effects, such as headaches, have often been reported.

E211 – sodium benzoate

E211, sodium benzoate, is an E number that’s used as a preservative and is found in products such as margarine, salad dressing, soy sauce, sweets and soft drinks. Studies have found that it’s linked to hyperactivity in children, plus it may cause reactions in people have allergic conditions or asthma.

E151 – black PN / brilliant black BN

Black PN, E151 is a form of black synthetic dye that is used as a food coloring in some products. However, concerns have been raised in other countries, as it’s been linked to allergic reactions in some people. It is already banned in Australia, Austria, America, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium and France.

E133 – brilliant blue FCF

Brilliant blue, E133 is another synthetic blue colouring dye, which adds a blue color to some products. Some people have been found to experience allergic reactions after consuming products containing E133 and this E number is already banned in Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Germany and Norway.

E213 – calcium benzoate

Calcium Benzoate, E213 is a form of preservative that’s used to lengthen the shelf life of foods and drinks. It’s often found in low sugar products, but it has been linked to side effects in people who have allergic conditions.


What can you eat that doesn't contain E Numbers?


As well as getting to grips with studying the ingredients lists on packaging, if you’re looking for snacks that are better for your health, more natural and perhaps lower in other additives or calories, then perhaps you could look towards the available alternatives to processed and packaged snacks. For example:

  • Dried fruit, such as apricots or raisins, give you a sweet kick and fill you up, but don’t contain E numbers.
  • Plain shelled nuts are a good alternative to packets of flavored or coated ones, which often have additives and E numbers added too.
  • Pitta bread or a bread roll offer a quick and easy snack and, unlike some pre-packaged sandwiches, won’t have unexpected additives lurking in their ingredients.
  • A good quality dark chocolate is very satisfying and is better for you than most confectionery chocolate.

Finding Drinks Without E Numbers

Finding drinks without E numbers is a similar task to finding snacks. On the one hand, it’s useful to get to grips with checking ingredients lists, but on the other hand you may need to slightly change the type of drinks you usually go for.

Fizzy drinks, fruit drinks and squashes are all renowned for being liable to contain E numbers and additives, particularly if they’re highly colored. It’s easy to get caught out by fruit drinks in particular. Whilst the name implies that they must contain fruit, some offerings barely have any fruit at all, but do have heaps of E numbers.

You need to check the labels carefully and look for ‘pure fruit juices’ rather than ‘fruit drinks,’ as these are more likely to be 100% pure fruit juice.

Some hot drinks, especially the ones that come in dried powder form and need to be mixed up, may contain E numbers too. In this instance, it’s basically a case of going back to the ingredients list and checking through to make sure there’s nothing nasty lurking in your favored hot drink.


Home Made and no E Numbers - here we go


If you’re keen to avoid consuming too many E numbers, then one perfect way of doing so is by home cooking.

For the avid E number avoider, checking the labels of foods and drinks before purchasing is a good way of avoiding E numbers. But to save the time and hassle, and give your health a great boost at the same time, the best bet is to prepare and cook food  from scratch.

What To Cook?

If you get really into the idea, then you could also have a go at bread making too. A wide range of bread makers are available that make the art of bread making dead simple – and quick too. The ingredients are all easily available and you can make your bread as wholesome as you like.

If you often eat yogurt, then it’s also possible to make yogurt. Yogurt makers are inexpensive and allow you to make yogurt that is free from flavourings, additives and E numbers. Natural yogurt is tasty on its own, but can be sweetened by adding a teaspoon of honey or a selection of fruit to it.

When you’re avoiding E numbers, you don’t have to miss out on foods such as cakes or biscuits. Although shop bought products are very likely to contain synthetic flavourings, additives or E numbers, by making your own cakes and biscuits you can avoid the unnatural ingredients and be sure of exactly what you’re eating.
