When the body’s immune system sees a specific food as dangerous and responds by causing allergic symptoms, is when food allergy occurs. Allergens are foods that cause allergic reactions. There are different kinds of allergic reactions to foods:

(IgE)  Immunoglobulin E mediated. Immunoglobulins E (IgE) are antibodies made by the body’s immune system. These IgE antibodies respond with a specific food and cause symptoms. In the United States, the most common causes of food allergy are these 8 foods:



Tree Nut



Shellfish (crustaceans)



Non-IgE mediated. Other parts of the body’s immune system respond to a specific food. This reaction causes symptoms, but does not include an IgE antibody. Someone individuals can have both non-IgE mediated food and IgE mediated allergies.

Not all individuals who react to a specific food have an allergy. They may have intolerance to food. For example: gluten intolerance, sulfite sensitivity or lactose intolerance. Food intolerance does not include the immune system.
