What to do in the event of an allergic reaction.

Which is the most “dangerous” food allergy?

No single food allergy poses a greater threat than another. While only eight foods (milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish) account for the vast majority of all food allergies, virtually any food can cause an allergic reaction. And even a very small amount of the problem food is enough to cause a reaction.  (Source:  Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE))
