The prevalence and distribution of food sensitization in European adults
TLDR
This work has assessed IgE sensitization to food‐associated allergens in different regions of Europe using a common protocol and found that in general, IgE sensitivity to food allergens is higher in Europe than in the rest of the world.

TLDR
The prevalence of sensitization and probable food allergy to 24 common foods among adults from general population in Karnataka, South India is reported.

TLDR
Sensitization profiles to purified plant food allergens among pediatric patients with allergy to banana are found to be similar to those of other children with peanut allergy.
Food allergy in infants assessed in two German birth cohorts 10 years after the EuroPrevall Study
TLDR
Using two large German birth cohorts, this work provides an update of the status quo 10 years later of Germany as a country with very high prevalence of FA at that time.
IgE sensitization against food allergens : Natural history, relation to airway inflammation and asthma
TLDR
The IgE sensitization protects against perennial allergens but also against food allergens, and is related to asthma risk and increased airway inflamma in children.
Epidemiology of Food Allergy.
TLDR
Allergy to peanut and egg seems to be more common in Northern Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia compared with Southern Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia, whereas shellfish and fish allergies may be moreCommon in Asia.
Epidemiologic studies about food allergy and food sensitization in tropical countries. Results and limitations.
The variety of foods and methods of preparation are part of the cultural identity of each population, and thus the main foods that cause symptoms vary among different regions. Due to their increasing

TLDR
The prevalence of peanut allergy in South Africa is unknown, but previously thought to be low, particularly in black South Africans, and component patterns and predictive values of screening tests in peanut allergy are determined.
[High prevalence of food sensitization among adults with allergic diseases who live in the Guadalajara metropolitan area].
TLDR
The prevalence of food sensitization in people with allergic disease was 40 % and further studies are required to determine its prevalence in the general population.
Food Allergens-Allergic Reation to Food
  • 2020
For a small percentage of people, specific foods or components of food may cause adverse reactions. These are typically classified as food allergies (i.e. reactions which involve the immune system)

TLDR
Little is known about other factors of the rural environment which may determine the development of atopic sensitization and related diseases.
Prevalence of sensitization to food allergens in adult Swedes.
TLDR
Sensitivity to food allergens was more common in atopic subjects, subjects reporting current asthma, and subjects with bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and associations remained significant after adjustment for the degree of allergic sensitization.
The prevalence of food allergy: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
There is a marked heterogeneity in the prevalence of food allergy that could be a result of differences in study design or methodology, or differences between populations, according to the method of assessment used.

TLDR
Self-reported food allergy/intolerance differed significantly across multiple countries, but are likely to be largely due to cultural differences.

TLDR
There are substantial variations in the prevalence of atopy and the level of serum IgE, which are independent of each other and likely to be largely environmental in origin.

TLDR
There was a strong but statistically nonsignificant trend for increase in reported peanut allergy, and sensitization to peanut had increased between 1989 and 1994 to 1996.
