Position paper of the EAACI: food allergy due to immunological cross-reactions with common inhalant allergens

Highlights: Consensus statement on cross reaction between aeroallergens and food (e.g. patients that are allergic to inhaled plant pollen may have allergic symptoms when eating food with similar allergenic proteins). To my knowledge, there is not a consensus statement on this topic in Canada or the United States. Cross reactions may be more prevalent and the consequence may be more severe and diverse than previous thought.

Application to Dietetic Practice: Dietitians that work with atopic clients or those with diverse allergic symptoms would benefit from reading this article.
