Researchers have found that high consumption of junk food such as microwaved foods and barbequed meats may be responsible for food allergies in children. The study, presented at the 52nd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition, shows that high levels of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are associated with food allergies in kids.

AGEs are present in high levels in junk foods such as sugars, processed foods, microwaved foods and roasted or barbequed meats. They are known to play a role in the development and progression of different oxidative-based diseases including diabetes, atherosclerosis and neurological disorders, said the researchers.

For the study, the research team observed 61 children aged between 6 and 12 years. They were identified in three categories - those with food allergies, those with respiratory allergies and healthy controls. The study revealed a significant correlation between AGEs and junk food consumption, said Roberto Berni Canani, Associate Professor at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy.
