This book covers basic and clinical perspectives of adverse reactions to food antigens; adverse reactions to food additives; and contemporary topics. The book covers pediatric and adult adverse reactions to foods and food additives, stress efforts to place adverse reactions to foods and food additives on a sound scientific basis, select authors to present subjects on the basis of their acknowledged expertise and reputation, and reference each contribution thoroughly.

The book is directed toward clinicians, nutritionists, and scientists interested in food reactions, and others interested in such reactions.
