If you are allergic to a food, what is the reaction time frame?
if you eat a food you are allergic to on friday can the reaction take until monday to show, or is it more immediate

useuall immedite to a few hours after.

No, usually not. That is too long for an allergic reaction to happen from a food you've eaten. Mine usually happens (depending on how much I consume) between a half hour to an hour after, starts with a headache, then I get hives. I have, however, gotten migraines from a specific food the next day, but 3 days later is really pushing it.

If you have an IGE mediated or "true allergy" your symptoms will show in 15 minutes to 2 hours.

If you have an intolerance, it could take a a few days to feel the effects.

Usually a sensitivity to a food will show up in 24 hours. A true allergic reaction is immediate. Throat swelling, hives, red in the face and tightness in the chest. If you have these , seek medical help now.

For me it depends upon what the food is. When I was allergic to raw fruits and vegetables, the reaction occurred in less than five minutes. For my poultry allergy, the reaction may be as long as 12 hours later.

A true allergic reaction occurs fairly quickly - from minutes to several hours from ingestion time. Reactions that occur days later are not allergic reactions - might be a food intolerance or food poisoning, or have absolutely nothing to do with food.
