Your Allergy Profile

When you or a loved one has food allergies, you have to tell a lot of different people — some who have higher food allergy IQ's; others who are totally uninformed — about them and how they can help you. You also have to research food choices to be sure all your food is allergen-free.

The Allergy Force app has features that make all these communication and research efforts much easier and more efficient for you.

To get the most out of the app, the first step you need to take after downloading is creating your Allergy Profile. This profile informs other features in the app (*see list below) about your food allergies so they can work on your behalf.

How do you do set up an Allergy Profile?

Set-up is easy to do — it just takes a minute. You will be prompted to set up your Allergy Profile as soon as you download the app and register. You'll find that the app accommodates up to 24 different food allergies.

Creating your Allergy Profile just takes a minute!

  1. As you scroll down the ‘Select Allergies’ page you will see there are 12 pre-populated allergens in the app that you can toggle ‘ON’.

  2. To toggle an allergen ‘ON’, tap the greyed-out square labelled with the allergen’s name that you want to add to your profile. When you toggle ‘ON’ an allergen, the image of the allergen becomes clearly visible and the text disappears.

  3. If you need to change the allergens (like adding a 2nd child’s different allergens), you can easily toggle ‘ON’ more allergens. If you want to remove an allergen from the profile, just tap the image again to toggle it ‘OFF’.

  4. Scrolling further down the ‘Select Allergies’ page you will see an ‘Add More’ button. If you tap that button, you will land on the ‘Add More’ page where you can type-in up to 12 more food allergies that are unique to you.

  5. When you’ve finished, click ‘Done’ or use the back arrow at the top of the screen to return to the ‘Select Allergies’ page.

  6. Scrolling to the very bottom of the ‘Select Allergies’ page you will be prompted to choose how you want to share your allergen information inside the Allergy Force community. You can choose to make your Allergy Profile ‘Public’ or ‘Self’. At this time, the app does not share anyone’s allergen information with other app users, even when ‘Public’ is selected.

What features in the app use the allergen list from your Allergy Profile?

A mix of Free Forever and Premium {paid} features in the app rely on the Allergy Profile information to work for you. Generally, these features help you easily communicate your allergies to others using pre-filled text and built-in email, text, or print features. They also help you research food options so you can make better (safer) food choices. Here they are:

  • Restaurant Allergy Explanation Card: alerts restaurants to your list of food allergies 21 different languages. (free)

  • Friends/Family Food Allergy Explanation: helps you easily & consistently explain your list of food allergies to friends & family. (free)

  • Food Scan: banishes unsafe food from your grocery cart with a quick barcode scan. (premium)

  • Food Search: search by food category, brand or exact label (premium)

  • Recipe Search: finds safe recipes free of your allergens that you can save to build your own library of allergy-friendly recipes or share with friends and family. (premium)

  • Food Preparation Explanation: step-by-step guide to help people preparing food for you. (premium)
