The project used a randomised controlled trial to compare oral tolerance to raw egg in children who have been consuming baked egg with those who have been on a completely egg free diet, and to compare immune markers of tolerance to egg in children who have been consuming baked egg, with those who have been on a completely egg free diet. The study showed that short-term regular inclusion of baked egg may not influence children’s evolving tolerance to raw egg.
