What Is an Oral Food Challenge?

Testing Overview

An oral food challenge is the most definitive test used to rule out a suspected food allergy. It should only be performed under the supervision of an experienced allergist under controlled conditions. The patient is given increasing amounts of the suspected food at regular intervals and monitored closely for signs of an allergic reaction. This process is continued until the patient either demonstrates the ability to tolerate a full serving or has an allergic reaction. In the event of an allergic reaction, our medical team will promptly provide appropriate care.
