5 Common Foods You Are Most Likely Allergic To

Although a Nigerian would quickly brush off any thought of food allergies because it is often seen as an ‘oyinbo’ thing but the truth is many Nigerians do experience different allergies, be it from food, cream or new environment. However, our focus here is food. There are so many food that could cause allergies and the common signs that you are allergic to something is sneezing, coughing or itching after eating. Most people aren’t even aware that the foods in their everyday diets may be affecting them negatively but just so you know, we have listed  the most common types of allergenic foods which you should cut down on, if you can’t do without them…

Milk is one of the leading common allergenic foods. Research has shown that there are two parts of milk that trigger allergic reactions. Casein, which is found in the solid part of the milk that curdles, which is called curd. And, Whey, which is found in the liquid part of milk that is left after milk curdles. An allergic reaction occurs because the immune system malfunctions and in response, it releases Histamine among other chemicals, to fight off unwanted antibodies. This is what causes allergic reactions such as: diarrhea, runny nose, itchy eyes, dry throat, rashes, hives, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty breathing and even anaphylactic shock.

Eggs

Eggs:  Although egg alergies are often outgrown in adulthood as they start during childhood and last until adolescence in some people. Egg allergies have been known to cause symptoms like rashes, hives, nasal inflammation, and vomiting or other digestive problems.

Groundnut or Peanut allergies appear in the form of  minor irritation like a rash, redness or itchiness and could be very severe in some people. Peanut allergies occur mostly in children and have the ability to worsen as they age.

Soybean allergy is one of the more common food allergies, especially among babies and children. Approximately 0.4 percent of children are allergic to soy.  Studies indicate that an allergy to soy generally occurs early in childhood and often is outgrown by age three. Research indicates that the majority of children with soy allergy will outgrow the allergy by the age of 10.

Fish: Finned fish can cause severe allergic reactions and salmon, tuna and halibut are the most common kinds of finned fish to which people are allergic. More than half of all people who are allergic to one type of fish also are allergic to other fish, so allergists often advise their fish-allergic patients to avoid all fish.
