Encyclopedia of Food Allergy, Three Volume Set organized in 10 sections, with ~200 chapters, and written by world-renowned clinician-scientist authors, is the most comprehensive resource for food allergy ever compiled. With intuitive and easily accessible organization of information, the reader can quickly access overviews and general topics as well as detailed information to inform solutions to clinical or research questions. Research topics provide the necessary background for the novice as well as the details required. Clinical topics provide comprehensive and practical information, with generous use of tables, figures, and key points/clinical pearls, to inform clinical decision-making, and promote evidence-based management decisions.

Food allergy may affect up to 10% of the population in developed countries and appears to be increasing in prevalence worldwide, with many food allergies proving lifelong, severe, and potentially fatal. The last decade has witnessed a sea change response to the impact of food allergy through basic science research on the immunology, food science research on the triggers, clinical approaches to daily management, treatment and prevention, and an increasing understanding of the psychosocial and societal implications and how to address them.
