Galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose, or Alpha-Gal for short, is a delayed allergy to mammal meat affecting a growing number of the population. This allergy is initially caused by a tick bite. Since the reaction to eating mammal meat is delayed by several hours, the proper diagnosis is often missed or misdiagnosed. People who are afflicted with this allergy have to be constantly vigilant about the ingredients they consume, because an allergic reaction can be severe and life-threatening.
The Alpha-Gal Allergy Awareness (AGAA) team is here to help educate the public and increase awareness about this allergy, particularly in the food service industry.
