Singapore - Post Report Question and Answers

What do people who suffer from environmental or food allergies need to know?

Be your own advocate and ask specific questions about your allergens. Thankfully you can ask detailed/specific questions in English here AND understand the answers. All food labels have English ingredient lists (however note that the generic term “permitted additives” is allowed as a named ingredient!). There’s general awareness of allergies, particularly nuts. But a lot of the foods here contain soy, ground peanuts or candlenuts and ground shrimp paste, and labeling might not be what you’re used to. - Mar 2022
