According to to the AAAAI, American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, milk allergies are quickly rising as a threat for anaphylaxis. Sloane Miller, a resident expert here, has an article outlining the AAAAI's position and research from a conference she attended. You can read the article here. There is also an article here where noted Author Alice Sherwood outlines the top allergens. She also notes the difference between allergy and intolerance. You can read the interview here. Because casein and whey are the two main protein allergens in milk, you should not eat foods that have these ingredients.

There's a lot of foods with milk in them you'd be surprised!
My son has milk allergies and there's a bunch of things he can't eat. Butter or margarine, cheese, whipped cream, custard and caramel candies are just a few.
That also means breakfast ceral, cookies, breads, and even lunchmeat, hot dogs and sausages! They might have something in them called casein, which is a fancy word for a milk protein or something.
