Gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, and milk allergies are likely to present very mild symptoms of stomach discomfort, bloating, perhaps flatulence. Lactose intolerance is most closely related to increasing age as the body produces less lactase, the enzyme responsible for the processing of lactose. Gluten is a protein in cereals such as wheat, barley, and rye. A person with gluten intolerance or sensitivity may experience pain and bloating after eating foods that contain gluten.
Gluten intolerance can lead to discomfort, but it is unlikely to cause severe symptoms that require emergency care. Severe abdominal pain can be a symptom of a serious medical issue, and anyone who experiences it should receive immediate medical attention.
The peanuts in the product are the major concern here. In certain people, the consumption of peanuts or soya can induce anaphylactic shock which is a serious condition requiring emergency treatment.

Allergen awareness is very important for food manufacturers and anyone who prepares food regularly. UK local authorities recommend food handlers complete allergy awareness training.
