Having a reaction to a food? Reactions to foods are common and can be categorized as either allergic or adverse. While allergic reactions are typically immediate and reproducible, adverse reactions are usually delayed and inconsistent. The evaluation and management of each of these reactions is different. While allergic reactions are tested with allergy skin testing, adverse reactions are more difficult to evaluate. A recent article in an allergy journal described some of these non-allergy tests as "unproven" and "lacking correlation with disease".
