Research suggests that food allergies happen when the protein components in food are not completely digested. Therefore, the immune system does not recognize them as nutritional and beneficial. As a result, your body’s defenses are activated against the intruding elements, producing antibodies and starting a chain reaction which can affect several tissues and organs.
Some of the most common symptoms for food allergies are tingling or itching in the mouth, hives, itching in the skin and eczema. Although they do not automatically mean that you have food sensitivity, they are certainly strong indicators.
