Wheat

Wheat Allergen Card Wheat allergy is an immune system response to the proteins in wheat. Allergies to other cereals are triggered by proteins within those cereals.  True wheat allergy often resolves in the first few years of childhood. An allergy to wheat and other cereals is sometimes seen for the first time in adulthood. Often the adults who develop an allergy to wheat and other cereals have an allergy to grass pollens and have hay fever (Allergic Rhinitis)
