Why is food allergen training important?

Food allergies are a serious medical condition where the body’s immune system mistakenly targets and attacks a harmless food protein (allergen). From the newly diagnosed to someone that has lived with it for years, personal research is critical to staying safe and living well with food allergies. The difference between food intolerance and an allergy is the immune system’s ability to produce abnormally large amounts of immunoglobin E (IgE). These antibodies fight the perceived enemy (allergens) by releasing histamine and other chemicals that trigger reaction symptoms.
