Food Allergies

A food allergy that you get by eating something foul is very common and very much possible at least once in a life. If one food is good for other person does not necessarily means it’s good for you. The only way to avoid an allergic reaction is to completely avoid the particular food that your body is not comfortable with. Following are the type of food allergies that are most common all over the world.

1. Milk and Casein Allergy

Milk and Casein Allergy
Very common and it does not require much time for one to realize that he or she has a milk allergy. If you think milk or a slice of pizza is causing swollen lips, hives or headaches, you may have an allergy to casein. Casein is also a milk protein and many people are allergic to it. Not only milk but all the products that contain milk ingredients should be avoided to prevent from a reaction. This allergic reaction can cause wheezing, vomiting and hives.

2. Wheat Allergy

Wheat Allergy
It’s not the wheat fiber that can build allergic reaction but the protein itself in wheat.

You may ask advice from your doctor for the substitute of wheat.
