exclusion diet

exclusion diet

A diet used to determine whether a food allergy exists. Ingredients thought to be possible allergens are eliminated individually and sequentially until an allergen is found. The procedure borders on the impracticable and may have to be modified to exclude categories of foods. Food allergy is less common than media reports might suggest.
