Fruit allergies are relatively common, but there is a lot less information about them as they are not easily defined and categorised. Here we aim to provide more information on the different allergenic proteins which may be the cause of allergic reactions to fruits.
For the purposes of this blog post we are defining fruit as “… the product of a tree or plant which contains seeds and can be eaten. These are generally sweet and fleshy.”
Fruit allergies can generally be split into three categories.
1 – Fruits causing mild “Oral Allergy type” symptoms
2 – Fruits with seeds causing severe allergy symptoms due to cross reactivity
3 – Fruits which contain other panallergens and can cause allergic symptoms from mild to severe.
