A 34-year-old woman referred episodes of gastrointestinal disorders and sometimes angioedema of the lips which appeared within 2 hours from the ingestion of packed food like biscuits, cereals or fruit juice. A patch test with the standard European series and with food preservatives was positive for fragrances mix. The avoidance of packed food labelled as containing flavours among the ingredients caused the disappearance of the above reported symptoms.
