Causes and mechanism of action
A true food (nutritional) allergy is the response of the immune system to substances that the body perceives as dangerous. The first time a new product enters the body, the immune system begins to produce antibodies — class A immunoglobulins. And subsequently, when the body encounters this product, it “recognizes” it as safe. But sometimes, in response to new food, the body produces class E immunoglobulins, it is they that provoke an allergic reaction. Continue reading
