What are common wheat allergy triggers?
Requested by Age2B visitor
by AGE2B

Below are some wheat-containing foods, drinks, and sauces that could trigger an allergic response in someone with a wheat allergy:

  • Processed meats, like hot dogs or cold cuts;
  • Dairy products, like ice cream;
  • Licorice and jelly beans;
  • Hard candies;
  • Pasta;
  • Bread and cakes;
  • Cookies and muffins;
  • Breakfast cereals;
  • Couscous;
  • Farina, semolina and spelt;
  • Soy sauce;
  • Beer.

Although allergic reactions typically occur when eating wheat, they can also happen by inhaling wheat flour. Some people with a wheat allergy may also react to other grains like rye or barley due to cross-reactivity between gluten proteins. And nonfood items with wheat-based ingredients, like modeling clay, cosmetics, or bath products can also cause an allergic reaction.
