EMA Care offers food allergy services

The amount of children with food allergies is on the rise.

It is estimated that between 1997 and 2011 the number increased by 50%. That means 1 out of 13 children have food allergies; 2 in every classroom!

If your family has a member with food allergies, EMA Care is here for you.   EMA Care is the only medical concierge company that specializes in helping you travel safely with food allergies.

The most common food allergies are milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish. Experts have estimated that sesame is becoming the 9th most common food allergy.  Except for shellfish, these allergens are popular and commonly used in food preparation in Israel!  It’s important to know that the Israeli culture is not attuned to food allergies because there are so few people in Israel with allergies.

EMA Care offers you many different food allergy services.
