The Royal Prince Albert Hospital diet or RPAH elimination diet, also known as the FAILSAFE diet, is an elimination diet to help identify food chemical sensitivities or intolerance symptoms.[1]

The RAPH diet is not for long term use; once the elimination has reduced and stabilized symptoms for 5 days, which typically takes 2 to 6 weeks, the person should begin food challenges to see which foods they react to.[1]

Food sensitivity groups[edit | edit source]

The RAPH elimination diet focuses on:

  • Salicylates
  • Amines
  • Glutamates
  • Additives, including artificial and natural colors, preservatives, antioxidants, and flavor enhancers
  • Gluten
  • Common allergens, including egg, dairy, soy, nuts, fish, seafood, sesame, kiwi fruit, wheat, lupin
  • Nutritional supplements including vitamins and minerals are restricted to only those listed[1]
