Rice Allergy Resources

The allergens in rice are called Ory s 1 and Ory s 12.

Ory s 1 is a beta expansin protein. These are found in the cell walls of plants and are a common cause of grass pollen allergies.

Ory s 12 is a profilin protein, most commonly causing allergic reactions in the airway, like hayfever.

I have put together some more comprehensive resources at http://www.allergyresources.co.uk/Rice.php

The allergy resources page for rice covers the key allergens, which allergic syndromes are linked to this allergy and other foods which are commonly cross reactive with rice.

There is also regularly updated links to useful websites specifically for rice allergies and the latest research papers on the topic.

Pineapple Allergy Resources

The key allergens in pineapple are Ana c 1 and Ana c 2. Ana c 1 is a profilin protein, similar to that in banana and latex.

Ana c 2 is called bromelain. This has been known to cause IgE mediated allergies and symptoms most often related to the respiratory system. This biochemical is commonly extracted from pineapple and used in cosmetics and food production where it is frequently used as a meat tenderiser (which is why your lips may tingle when eating pineapple).

Coconut Allergy Resources

Coconuts are part of the Aracaceae family of plants so are more similar to palm plants, banana and pineapple than they are to tree nuts. There is little evidence that coconut should be avoided if you suffer from a nut allergy.

Coc n 1 is a major allergen associated with allergy to coconut – it is classified as an inhalent allergen rather than an ingested food allergen.

Asparagus Allergy Resources

Aspa o 1 is the key allergen associated with an allergy to asparagus, it is a lipid transfer protein (LTP). If you have an allergy to this protein you will still suffer symptoms on ingestion of the cooked vegetable.

There is some evidence that asparagus can cause contact dermatitis rashes – this is due to a plant growth inhibitor called 1,2,3-Trithiane-5-carboxylic acid, which is present in young shoots. If sensitised to this you will still be able to eat the cooked food.

Raspberry Allergy Resources

Raspberries are part of the plant order Rosales, many species of plants in this order are cultivated for their fruit.

The two main allergens identified in raspberry are Rub i 1 and Rub i 3. Rub i 1 is an allergen in the Bet v 1 family, which can cause oral allergy syndrome.

Grape Allergy Resources

The key allergen in grape is Vit v 1, this is a lipid transfer protein (LTP). These proteins are resistant to heat and are found in many types of plants. Patients suffering from a more severe allergy to cooked fruit may be sensitised to this group of proteins

Cassava Allergy Resources

Man e 5 is the main protein in cassava that causes allergic reactions. This is a Glutamic acid rich protein, similar in structure to hevein.

Cassava allergy can be linked to Latex Food Syndrome as the main allergen is similar in structure to hevein, which can cause problems in people with a latex allergy.

Papaya Allergy Resources

Carica papaya is a plant from the order Brassicales which produces fruit called papaya.

Only 1 allergen has been identified in papaya fruit and that is Cari p 1.

Cari p 1 is a polygalacturonase (PG) and is responsible in part for ripening of fruit. In food allergy PGs are responsible for oral allergy type symptoms as the patient first becomes sensitised to the pollen of this plant and then to the fruit.

Tomato Allergy Resources

There are 7 allergens associated with tomato allergy – the main allergen in tomato is Sola l 4 which is similar in shape to the Bet v 1 allergens which can cause oral allergy type symptoms.

Three of the proteins found in tomato are lipid transfer proteins, Sola l 3, 6 and 7.
