  1. Prevalence of food allergy and intolerance in the adult Dutch population.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of food allergy and intolerance (FA/FI) was studied in a random sample (n=1483) of the Dutch adult population.

    First, the self-reported FA/FI reactions were investigated by questionnaire.

    Subsequently, in a clinical follow-up study, it was determined in how many cases this self-reported FA/FI could be objectively confirmed by double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge.

    More than 10% of the population (12.4%) reported FA/FI to specific food(s).

    Of the 144 subjects potentially available for the clinical follow-up study, 73 completed the whole protocol.

    In 12 subjects FA/FI could be confirmed by double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge, this indicates a minimum prevalence of FA/FI in the population of 0.8% (12 of 1483).
