Food allergy is mediated by the immune system and is the body's abnormal response to a food.
Manifest themselves through digestive symptoms, skin and respiratory system, sometimes leading to anaphylactic shock. Reaction products of an allergen are not predictive, therefore the only effective treatment in food allergy is avoidance of the food the determinant.
Food allergy must be well separated from food intolerance, which does not involve the immunological reactions and is caused by the inability of the digestive system to digest a particular food.
Probiotics can prevent food allergies
A good natural means of prevention of food allergies is the consumption of probiotics (Lactobacillus, Streptococcus thermophillus bulcaricus, L Casei Imunitas acidophilus, Lactobacillus or Bifidobacteria), the best sources of probiotics being usual yoghurts (unless you have an allergy to dairy!), sauerkraut, fermented foods, spirulina, and nutritional supplements with probiotics.
The most common food allergies
Theoretically, any food can cause allergies, but main are cow's milk, eggs, peanuts, walnuts, soy, fish and shellfish.
Some infants may have a very strong allergy, so the following reactions alaptarii presents if the mother has eaten one of these foods.
Peanut Allergy is often common in children and usually lasts a lifetime, and the reactions that we determine are very serious, agravandu with the passage of time, roughly a quarter consisting of anaphylactic shock-which can lead to death if not quickly intervenes.
Because peanuts are present in many preparations, the incidence of Peanut Allergy has increased and is a major cause of severe allergic reactions to food.
People with an allergy to peanuts may present cross reactivity to almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts, berries and sometimes from legumes, such as peas or beans.
Allergy to eggs is caused most commonly by antigens from albus (ovalbumin and ovomucoidul) who maintain the effect and making Thermo, but the yolk may cause allergies. If a child is allergic in the first years of life, it can heal afterwards.
Milk allergy is the cause of this beta-lactoglobulinei.
Some children may have an allergy to milk before the age of 5 years, then nemaiprezentand allergic reactions.
There are cross reactions between cow's milk and goat's milk, so will avoid other types of milk to children allergic to cow's milk.
Allergy to over is one of the most common allergies in both child and adult.
The protein that causes the allergy is often over at parvalbumina. Unlike other food allergens, protein fractions of fish can be damaged by heat-treating, so if a person is allergic to fresh tuna may not pose an allergy to canned tuna consumption.
The resulting smoke also hovering, the fish can cause allergic reactions!
Seafood allergy is commonly seen in adults, being caused by shellfish (mussels, oysters, snails, squid and Octopus) and crustaceans (lobsters, crabs, shrimp).
Many people may have allergies to related products, what is called cross reactivity. A person who is allergic to shrimp, may be allergic to other shellfish such as crab or lobster.
Other food allergies can be caused by fruits, such as peaches, strawberries, raspberries, strawberries, kiwi fruit, or vegetables, e.g. carrots, or celery.
The most serious symptoms of food allergies are caused by peanut butter, nuts and seafood!
