Food Allergies Call for Savvy Sleuthing

Some people grocery shop with a list. My friend, Susan, strolls along the aisles with a magnifying glass in hand. Why? She needs it for reading labels.

Her husband is one of the roughly 12 million Americans who have food allergies and one of roughly 1% of Americans who are allergic to peanuts. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, peanuts and tree nuts are the leading causes of fatal and near-fatal food allergic reactions.

It’s no wonder Susan isn’t taking any chances. Her magnifying glass trains on label after label, looking not only for obvious sources such as peanuts, peanut flour, and peanut butter but other more obscure forms of offending peanut proteins like peanut extracts, ground nuts, packaged cakes, crackers, soups, salad dressings, health bars, and chocolate candy, just to name a few. My usual supermarket sprint turned into a mega-shopping marathon when I decided to join Susan one afternoon, but it was well worth it. Now, I have bona fide experience at being a food allergy sleuth.

What Is Food Allergy?

Today, food allergy seems to be the new “in” medical disorder. It’s the hot topic discussed at cocktail parties, on talk shows, and by movie stars, moguls, and supermodels. But true food allergy isn’t something to take lightly.

Food allergy, explains Anne Muñoz-Furlong, cofounder of the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, “is a condition in which the immune system incorrectly identifies a food protein as a threat and attempts to protect the body against it by releasing chemicals into the blood. The release of these chemicals results in the symptoms of an allergic reaction.”

These symptoms, which may begin minutes or up to two hours after eating an offending food, can range from mildly annoying itching and wheezing to a life-threatening drop in blood pressure and loss of consciousness.

Food intolerance and food sensitivity are two terms commonly confused with food allergy. Food intolerance doesn’t involve the immune system. Instead, it’s a condition in which our bodies can’t adequately digest a certain component of a particular food. Lactose intolerance—an inability to digest the natural sugar in milk—is a good example. A reaction is uncomfortable but not usually life threatening.

The definition of food sensitivity is a bit fuzzier. It’s generally used as a blanket term for both food intolerances and food allergies, which at worst creates a plateful of misunderstanding.

“If you think you have a food allergy,” says Muñoz-Furlong, “keep a diet diary to help pinpoint the food or foods. Then, work in partnership with your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. If you’re tested and the results point to a food that’s a staple in your diet, speak up; it might be a false positive.”

A clinical history, meaning a detailed account of what you eat and how you f...
