Allergens & Food Allergies
In India an estimated 6 million people suffer from food allergies. A food allergy, or hypersensitivity, is an abnormally robust response to a food item triggered by the immune system. This severe reaction is responsible for 30,000 hospitalizations and 350 deaths a year in India. Currently there is no cure for allergies; the only way a person who suffers from this ailment can prevent an allergic reaction is to identify certain foods responsible for such a reaction and avoid eating them.
Products which commonly cause food allergies in adults are shrimp, lobster, crab, and other shellfish, peanuts, walnuts and other tree nuts, fish and eggs. Children are often afflicted by eggs, milk, peanuts, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts fish and shrimp.
