Food Labels: Breaking the Code

Many individuals with acid reflux disease have food sensitivities. For example, my son   can not tolerate corn, eggs, wheat, or dairy. And even though new food labeling requirements took effect in the United States in 2006, there are still times that reading food labels can be a bit complicated. This is because a food may take on an unfamiliar name if it is used for processing purposes, or if a food is packaged outside of the U.S., the stricter food labeling requirements may not have been met.
