  • Wheat
  • Just to make it clear: an allergy to wheat is not the same as suffering from celiac disease. In case a person is allergic to wheat, he or she suffers from an immune response to the protein in wheat and wheat itself. Celiac disease, on the other hand, is an allergic reaction to gluten, which besides wheat, can be also found in barley, rye, and some oats.

    1. Soy

    Soybeans and soy products are common foods that can cause allergies. In many cases, this type of allergy starts with reaction of the infant diet based on soy. Although most of the child population eventually outgrows allergies to soy, it can be also maintained in adulthood.

    Often, the symptoms and signs of allergy to soy are mild, such as itching in the mouth and rashes. In rare cases, allergies to soy can cause allergic reaction – anaphylaxis which is life-threatening.
