Whole food allergen IgE tests are very sensitive but some patients with positive results do not have a true food allergy. Food component IgE tests offer more specific information that better predicts the likelihood that a true food allergy exists and other details of potential clinical relevance. A final food allergy diagnosis should always be based on a combination of IgE test results, a physical examination, and clinical history.
