Food allergies can develop later in life for some people, although most do start during childhood, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Adults can develop an allergy to something he or she has previously eaten with no issues with prior.
WebMd estimates that more than 10% of US adults – which is approximately 26 million people – develop a food allergy, via a study done by Ruchi Gupta, MD that was published in JAMA Network Open.
Dr. Gupta says: ‘We think of food allergies happening in children, and they do, at a rate of about 1 in 13. Adult food allergies impact one in 10 and half of these are food allergies starting in adulthood.’
