    Sammanfattning : Background: The prevalence of allergy to foods has increased over the last decades and among children in Europe as many as 8 % have an allergy to one or more types of food.

    Sammanfattning : The knowledge on adverse reactions to foods and the spectrum of food-related gastrointestinal symptoms in relation to allergy in adults is still scarce. The conventional allergy tests do not always offer with precision an accurate diagnosis in case of suspicious food allergy and therefore patients often need to be investigated further with oral food challenge or even intestinal biopsy.
