What are food allergies?

That’s the big deal! It is when the body’s response to food allergens (such as eggs, nuts, milk, shellfish, strawberries and tomatoes) causes an allergic reaction, which increases histamine levels in the blood. Proteins in food can not be broken down during the cooking process or by acid in the stomach or intestinal digestive enzymes. Allergens enter the gastrointestinal mucosa and blood circulation and cause allergic reactions in the body and attack the immune system. For some people, these foods can cause anaphylactic shock. About 3% of adults and 6-8% of children have clinically demonstrated allergic reactions. Children may have food allergies, but adults do not. Most food allergies are of genetic origin and usually both parents have food allergies.
