Abstract

Food allergies and intolerances affect a small but significant portion of the population. Symptoms can range from mildly annoying to severe and life -threatening. The true food allergies present the biggest risk because symptoms can occasionally be quite severe and the threshold dose of the offending food needed to provoke a reaction is quite small. The only management strategy for individuals with food allergies and intolerances is the specific avoidance of the offending food. Development of safe and effective avoidance diets can be quite difficult for individuals with true food allergies.
