Abstract

The prevalence of food allergies in children is known to be on the rise in the United States. The Jewish population has been of specific interest in the area of food allergy due to numerous investigations in Jewish populations in both England and Israel. Specifically, it was found that rates of food allergy in Jewish populations in Israel were markedly lower than Jewish populations in England. There has not been any investigation of the epidemiology of food allergy in Jewish populations in the United States. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate and describe the prevalence of and experiences with food allergy in a Jewish population in the United States.
