The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases defines food allergy as an adverse immune response occurring reproducibly on exposure to a given food and distinct from other adverse responses to food, such as food intolerance, pharmacologic reactions, and toxin-induced reactions. Laboratory testing options include skin testing, food-specific serum IgE, and serum tryptase.
