Allergy New Zealand

Allergy New Zealand is a national membership-based, not-for-profit society whose primary role is to provide information, education, and support to the many thousands of New Zealanders living with allergies, including those at risk of anaphylaxis.

They also represent their interests particularly to government, policy makers and the media, provide information and guidance to the health, education and food sectors, and support research.

Allergy New Zealand also has excellent information regarding Food Allergens specificlly.

"A food allergy is an exaggerated immune system to a food protein and the body triggers an allergic reaction. Symptoms can include hives, itching, swelling, vomiting, diarrhoea and nausea. In some cases, it can cause potentially life-threatening symptoms, called anaphylaxis, either by breathing difficulties and/or a sudden drop in blood pressure".
