Fish-Free Diet

Fish-Free Diet

Fish allergies are becoming increasingly common across the UK, and it is important for those who do suffer from it to know how to properly adhere to a fish-free diet.

What is a fish allergy?

A fish allergy is often severe and can, in rare cases, be fatal. For this reason it is important that those who suffer from a fish allergy know what foods to avoid.

Firstly, it is advised that all types of fish are avoided, with some of the most well-known including:

  • Cod
  • Salmon
  • Trout
  • Herring
  • Sardines
  • Bass
  • Orange roughy
  • Swordfish
  • Halibut
  • Tuna

As well as this, it is advised that you avoid food products that are made from/include fish, such as:

  • Caviar or roe (fish eggs)
  • Fish oil
  • Fish sauce
  • Surimi (imitation crabmeat) contains fish
  • Anchovies
  • Caponata
  • Caesar salad dressings
  • Steak sauce
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Gelatin
  • Omega-3 supplements

When eating at a restaurant, it is advised that you take particular caution when eating in places that serve seafood or Asian foods, as these often contain fish or traces of fish.
