Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food hypersensitivities include allergic (IgE-dependent and IgE-independent food allergies) and non-allergic (lactose, histamine, salicylate or synthetic additives intolerance, coeliac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance) disorders. Such disorders occur not only among infants and children but also among adults. Treatment involves elimination diets, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition as well as feeding disorders in children.

In recent years, along with the development of molecular diagnostics, new elimination diet principles for the treatment of food allergies have been introduced. For those who are allergic to thermally unstable milk or egg allergens, these products are administered in baked form.

The aim of this Special Issue of Nutrients on "Food Sensitivity: Causes and Management" is to provide information on different forms of food hypersensitivity and different ways of conducting elimination diets. We are in papers covering topics from anaphylactic conditions requiring full elimination of even trace amounts of food to IgE-dependent allergies to milk or egg, in which some patients can be given these products in a baked form.

I invite our readers to share the results of their research in this area.
