What is a food allergy?
A food allergy is caused when the body's immune system mistakes an ingredient in food—usually a protein—as harmful and creates a defence system to fight it. An allergic reaction occurs when the antibodies are battling this food protein. Although a person could have an allergy to almost any food, the following foods account for almost 90% of all food-related allergic reactions:
Tree nuts (such as cashews and walnuts)
