Food allergies are immunologically mediated adverse reactions to foods. Such allergies can result in disorders with an acute onset of symptoms following ingestion of the triggering food allergen (eg, anaphylaxis), as well as in chronic disorders (eg, atopic dermatitis, eosinophilic esophagitis). Symptoms observed in a food-induced anaphylactic reaction may involve the skin, gastrointestinal tract, and respiratory tract. How much do you know about food allergies?
