Allergic reactions range from simple itching to life-threatening anaphylactic reactions that can lead to death. In most of the cases, we blame to food.

How to define food allergy?

An allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction triggered by the body’s own immune system. A food allergy is reaction of  an immune system that occurs immediately after eating certain foods.

Epidemiological studies show that food allergy is an increasing problem in most developing countries. It affects 6 to 8% of children under 3 years of age and about 3% of adults.

There are three main groups of food allergies:

 IgE-mediated response (immunoglobulin E). This is an immediate reaction that occurs within 2 hours of ingestion.

 Non-IgE-mediated response: Delayed response that occurs 4–28 hours after ingestion. 

If you have a mixed food allergy, your immune system recognizes the food as harmful. The immune system causes cells to release immunoglobulin E to neutralize food particles. 

The next time we eat this food, IgE signals the immune system to release a chemical called histamine, which causes an allergic reaction.
