According to the recently revised nomenclature for allergy the term "Food Hypersensitivity" is proposed to define a reaction on food exposure causing objectively reproducible symptoms or signs at a dose tolerated by normal subjects. Those reactions to food in which immunologic mechanisms are demonstrated comprise the term "Food Allergy". Immunologic reactions to food in which an immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated mechanism is established are defined as IgE-mediated food allergy. This review focuses on IgE-mediated allergic reactions to foods.
