Life-threatening food allergies are a daily challenge for millions of people worldwide. International travel can be stressful due to unknown foods and environments abroad. The difficulties of traveling with a food allergy can include: understanding a country's allergen labeling for prepackaged food, communicating allergies in a foreign language at restaurants, translating medical needs and choosing an allergy-friendly airline.
