What is a reactive test result for products which I’ve never eaten?

There are the following explanation of reactive test results for food consumed occasionally or never:
1. Genetics. It has been shown that food allergies and hypersensitivity have a strong genetic component that can be passed from generation to generation.
2. Cross reaction. Your immune system identifies and differentiates antigens substances on the bases of their molecular structure. The food from some family of foods often has a similar structure of proteins and may sometimes cause the cross reaction during tests. Another situation conducive to cross-reactivity occurs when reactive chemical bonds are formed with non-reactive food causing its immune identification with reactive substance.
3. A false positive test result. Even the most accurate laboratory test can give a false result. The MRT test sensitivity is 94.5%, leaving a small margin of potential measurement errors.
