Background to the European Food Intolerance Databanks project EFID

The European Food Intolerance Databanks project developed as a result of the success of the food intolerance databanks in the Netherlands and the UK. In the early 1990s, the Leatherhead Food RA was aware that, despite the usefulness of food intolerance databanks in the management of food intolerance, the UK and Dutch databanks were the only ones in existence in Europe.
