Allergens are substances in food that are a common cause of allergic reactions or other hypersensitivity reactions. Even small amounts of an allergen might cause severe reactions.
The symptoms of an allergic reaction can vary from mild to severe, from itching of the mouth and eyes, rhinitis, coughing, vomiting and stomach pain, to asthma, blood pressure drop and systemic reactions, which might develop into an allergic chock. All hypersensitivity reactions are not allergic reactions. Examples of other hypersensitivity reactions are celiac disease (intolerance to gluten) and lactose intolerance.
