What causes FPIES?

Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is common in both males and females and often begins in infancy or young childhood. While it can affect anyone of any age, it is much rarer in adults and less well researched.

Similar to most food-allergy-related conditions, the cause of FPIES is not entirely understood. The most common FPIES triggers are cow milk and soy. However, almost any food can potentially cause an allergic reaction – even foods like rice and oats, that don’t usually provoke allergies. Often, FPIES will begin around the time the infant is introduced to formula or solid food.

FPIES is most triggered by dairy and soy. (Food Allergy Canada) However, it can also be triggered by any food.
