An allergen is a substance that can cause an allergic reaction. Allergens are substances that, in some
people, the immune system recognizes as "foreign" or "dangerous" but cause no response for most
people.Food allergies are not as common as food sensitivity, but some foods such as peanuts (really
a legume), nuts, seafood and shellfish are the cause of serious allergies in many people.

Officially, the Food and Drug Administration,USA does recognize 8 foods as being common for allergic
reactions in a large segment of the sensitive population, which includes, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs,
milk, shellfish, fish, wheat and their derivatives, soy and their derivatives, and sulphites (chemical
based, often found in flavors and colors in foods) at 10ppm and over. It should be noted that other
countries, due to differences in genetic profiles of its citizens and different levels of exposure to
different foods, the "official" allergen list will change.Gluten -gluten free product are due to some
