Allergens in food: all the dangers

About 2% of adults and up to 8% of children suffer from true food allergy. The real food allergens are proteins. The difference between allergy and intolerance lies in the way the body handles the offending food.

In a true food allergy, the body’s immune system recognizes a reaction-causing substance, or allergen, as foreign and produces antibodies to stop the “invasion”. As the battle rages, symptoms appear throughout the body.

The most common sites are the mouth (swelling of the lips), the digestive system (stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea), the skin (hives, skin rashes or eczema) and the respiratory tract (wheezing or breathing problems).

There is no cure for food allergies; the only solution is to strictly avoid the offending food. For an individual with food allergies, the main problem is knowing whether an allergen is contained in a particular food.

Food intolerance is due to a chemical deficiency (usually the lack of a specific enzyme) and causes digestive problems. Lactose intolerance is an example of food intolerance.
