Common Food Allergens

To learn more about food allergy, we recommend the following video by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Eight foods account for 90 percent of all food allergy reactions:

  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts (cashews, pecans, walnuts, etc.)
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Wheat
  • Soy
  • Fish (halibut, salmon, etc.)
  • Shellfish (crab, lobster, shrimp, etc.)

However, almost any food can cause a reaction. Visit FAACT's Education Resource Center for FREE and downloadable resources.
