The purpose of this Special Issue, “Nutrition and Allergic Diseases”, is to provide an overview of the role of nutrition in allergy. The prevalence of asthma, rhinitis and food allergy has increased tremendously over the last few decades. Is there a role for nutrition to help managing this global challenge? This Special Issue will touch upon the many aspects that relate to nutrition and allergy, and focuses on two fundamental questions:
1) Can nutrition play a role in allergy prevention and induction?
2) Can nutrition play a role in managing allergies?
The topics covered should range from epidemiology of nutrition and allergy prevalence, through breastfeeding, microbiota, food allergy, immunotherapy approaches for food allergy, early introduction of food components, food processing, and known effects of food components on allergy.
