This article provides a clinically focused review of food-induced anaphylaxis that includes epidemiology, risk factors, allergens, diagnosis, and management. Currently, there is no treatment for food allergy. Dietary avoidance and emergency preparedness are the cornerstones of management. Effective and safe therapies to reduce the risk of serious food-induced reactions are urgently needed, as are reliable biomarkers to predict severity.
