Food Allergies & Sensitivities

  • Not everyone who experiences symptoms after eating certain foods has a food allergy or needs to avoid that food entirely;
    •  For instance, some people experience an itchy mouth and throat after eating a raw or uncooked fruit or vegetable.
  •  This may indicate oral allergy syndrome – a reaction to pollen, not to the food itself.
  • The immune system recognizes the pollen and similar proteins in the food and directs an allergic response to it.
  • The allergen is destroyed by heating the food, which can then be consumed with no problem
