There has been a great increase in the consumption of various food additives in recent years. The purpose of this study was to identify the incidence of sensitization to food additives by using skin prick test in patients with allergy and to determine the concordance rate between positive skin tests and oral challenge in hypersensitivity to additives. This cross-sectional study included 125 (female 71, male 54) patients aged 2-76 years with allergy and 100 healthy individuals. Skin tests were…

The gold standard diagnosis that shows causality between the additive and the symptoms is the oral food challenge and the treatment shall always be the elimination of the food additive from the patient's diet.

Adverse reactions to food additives in children with atopic symptoms

The incidence of intolerance of food additives among children referred to an allergy clinic with symptoms of asthma, atopic dermatitis, rhinitis, or urticaria was 2%, and children with atopic skin symptoms had a statistically increased risk of a positive reaction.

The results suggest that skin tests with food additives can be used to measure skin hyperreactivity and that they may have a predictive value in identifying patients who will respond to an additive‐free diet.

Hypersensitivity reactions to food additives

Systemic and respiratory reactions to food colorants and benzoates have been claimed to occur more frequently in acetylsalicylic acid‐ (ASA‐)sensitive patients than in non‐reactors.

The results confirmed that food additive hypersensitivity reactions occurred in few RCIU patients using DBPC single challenge, and seems to be of considerable practical interest for allergists, internists and dermatologists, rather than the data of clinical history and the results of DBPCsingle challenge, in patients with RCIU.
