Do you suffer from any serious food allergies? If so, know you’re not alone! According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, about 32 million people have food allergies in the U.S. Milk is the most common allergen for children, followed by eggs and peanuts. For adults, the most common allergen is shellfish, followed by peanuts and tree nuts. Interesting!
There are only eight foods that cause most allergic food reactions. Those foods are: milk, soy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.
Do you have serious food allergies? Are they of any of the foods mentioned above? Leave a comment and tell us, if you’re willing. Thanks!
Unfortunately bay scallops, and I love them. Since my reaction is anaphylactic, I definitely need to avoid them. Strangely, I don’t react to shrimp or clams..
Shellfish and because of that I don’t like any fish/seafood.
My wife is very lactose intolerant. Not enough recipes that use No milk or dairy products.
I know several people with food allergies, which makes me thankful I have none.
No food allergies but I have been known to fib and say that I am allergic to bell peppers because I detest them and literally gag if I accidentally eat one.
I agree with the bell peppers and add brussel sprouts to my “allergies”.
Not us, but grand daughter is deathly allergic to red dye.
I am allergic to 5 of the top 8. Soy is by far my worst allergy and it is in almost everything!
Yes…the oil in cayenne pepper…my airway will obstruct at lightning speed so it is life threatening! Also I have a food “intolerance” for lobster (makes me very ill) but other seafood is OK!
The topic of today’s Poll struck my funny bone considering yesterday you were asking about weight. I have found no food I am allergic too, it all likes me too much.
Yes, I am deathly allergic to beer. The Drs say it’s something in how 2 or more ingredients react so I can’t say it is one thing. Imagine in highschool your boyfriend trying to explain to your parents why you were rushed to hospital after only one sip of beer!!! 😭😭😭💝
Spouse was bitten by a Lone Star Tick. As a result, a strictly “fin and feather” diet. No mammal products. Epi pen with us always.
I’ve lost about 25 pounds so far.
My sister had that. It can go away after a while. It took about 5 years but now she can eat beef and pork again. She did a test with a cheeseburger to see if she could tolerate it. Ate a few bites with my other sister on stand by to call 911 and use the epi pen. After a couple of hours with no reaction she ate the rest of the burger and no problems since then.
I do have allergies and take shots every two weeks to lessen their effects. Thankfully I have no food allergies.
None except see food and eat it and the waist expands. I feel for those that do like peanuts or other nuts or other everyday items like lactose or gluten. It’s hard enough being diabetic.
I told my mother I was allergic to liver when I was a kid, because I hated it. Now that I’m old and grey, I LOVE liver and onions. I even ordered it in a restaurant once! Whodda thunk?
I’m allergic to scallops and all bivalves. Could kill me. Ate them when I was 4 y/o and just got sick. Ate them again at 33 y/o and nearly died. I knew there was a reason I always said I didn’t like scallops.
Onion… Highly allergic to it. It can kill me.
I must be, the more I eat the bigger I get.
Yes, Vietnamese shrimp. They’re raised on human waste and full of toxins. Learned many years ago that 72% of our shrimp is imported. So I don’t take a chance on shrimp anymore.
Come South, most of our shrimp is local. I’ve even been out during the season and netted for them.
Gulf Coast, for sure.
