– In general, our immune system’s reaction to food allergies include itching, rashes, asthma, shortness of breath, headache and anaphylaxis (gastronomical reactions like stomach ache, chest pain and diarrhea).

– The indicator for allergic reactions is an increase in Antigens in the blood (IgH, LIgG, IgE).

Below is a list of foods that are more inclined to cause allergic reactions in the human body:

* Tomato, mushroom and cheese (factor MSG) – ice cream, cold deserts (Acetylsalicylic acid additive) – Avacado, shrimp, dried fruits, wine (Sulfate additive)- seashell, pork, peanut, pineapple (Histamine)- chocolate, cheese , wine (Tyramine) which causes migraine – Diet sodas, diet candy, chocolate (Phenylalanine) which causes diarrhea and stomachache – breads, pastas and wheat (Gluten) which causes digestive problems.

* Dairy products contain Lactose. Lactose is a kind of sugar found in dairy. In order to properly digest Lactose, the small intestine produces an Enzyme called Lactase. However this Enzyme is not produced in many people’s bodies. In such cases, these people may only tolerate yoghurt and soy milk ( soy milk contains less Calcium and more Protein compared to cow milk). Otherwise, they encounter stomachache, diarrhea and tympanites.

* In case of having Favism, avoid eating broad beans.

As a general practice, the best way to pinpoint an allergic reaction is to start by omiting one food at a time from the diet and check the outcome. In some conditions, special vaccine injections are  prescribed by a physician.
