Alpha-Gal Syndrome, also known as the Meat Allergy or Mammalian Meat Allergy (MMA), is a condition that causes allergic reactions to the carbohydrate, alpha-gal, found in mammals. This condition was traditionally considered to be a relatively uncommon allergy; however, it is becoming more and more prevalent in certain parts of the world, including the US. Because mammalian ingredients are so widely used to produce so many day to day products, ie. personal care items, makeup, foods, pharmaceuticals, it has been very difficult for those diagnosed to completely avoid them. Our goal is to raise awareness, in hopes that producers, manufacturers and food service industries would develop a better understanding of this condition and be able to clearly label their products and/or change their preparation and manufacturing processes.

Three of our Common Connection Team members have experienced the effects of this life changing syndrome. We are determined to do our part to help raise awareness and offer support for others who have Alpha-gal.
