Although nearly any food is capable of causing an allergic reaction, there are eight foods that account for approximately 90 percent of all food-allergic reactions.These foods are:

  • Peanuts
  • Milk
  • Wheat
  • Fish
  • Tree Nuts
  • Eggs
  • Soy
  • Shellfish

Here are some interesting facts from FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education.

  • Every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency department – that is more than 200,000 emergency department visits per year
  • A reaction to food can range from a mild response (such as an itchy mouth) to anaphylaxis, a severe and potentially deadly reaction.
  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that food allergies result in more than 300,000 ambulatory-care visits a year among children under the age of 18. Food allergy is the leading cause of anaphylaxis outside the hospital setting.
  • Once an anaphylactic reaction starts, a medication called epinephrine is the first line of defense to treat the reaction, and you should immediately seek emergency medical attention by calling 911. You can protect yourself by learning the symptoms of allergic reactions and knowing what steps to take if you have a severe reaction.
  • Teenagers and young adults with food allergies are at the highest risk of fatal food-induced anaphylaxis
  • Individuals with food allergies who also have asthma may be at increased risk for severe/fatal food allergy reactions
  • Symptoms of anaphylaxis may recur after initially subsiding and experts recommend an observation period of about four hours to monitor that the reaction has been resolved.
  • It is possible to have anaphylaxis without any skin symptoms (no rash, hives).
  • Failure to promptly (i.e., within minutes) treat food anaphylaxis with epinephrine is a risk factor for fatalities.
