The Science Behind Nut Allergies 

Nut allergies occur when the immune system mistakenly identifies nuts as harmful substances. This can lead to severe reactions, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening. Peanut allergy accounts for the majority of severe food-related allergic reactions. It tends to present early in life, and affected individuals generally do not outgrow it. In highly sensitised people, trace quantities can induce an allergic reaction. 

Statistics on Nut Allergies in the UK 

Recent studies suggest that approximately 2% of the UK population suffers from a nut allergy, with a higher prevalence among children. This growing number signifies the importance of understanding and managing nut allergies effectively. The perceived prevalence of food allergies is substantially higher than the actual prevalence. Up to 30% of the general population believe they have a food allergy, and up to 30% of parents believe that their children have a food allergy. 
Eight foods are responsible for more than 90% of food allergies: cow's milk, eggs, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans and pistachios), fish and shellfish. All food allergies have the potential to induce anaphylaxis, but some foods are more likely than others to cause potentially life-threatening reactions. The food allergies most commonly associated with anaphylaxis (those to peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish) are the ones least likely to resolve.
