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
