Allergies originate early in life and food sensitization is often the first manifestation of allergic disease (1). Breastfeeding has been inconsistently associated with allergic conditions (2). These inconsistencies could reflect differences in human milk composition, which varies across different settings and populations. However, it remains poorly understood which of the bioactive components in human milk contribute to the developmental programming of allergic disease.
