Rice allergy has become more common across the world, although rice is the most important staple food for a large part of the world’s human population. Rice is also found in other foods and most people don’t always know this and if they have a rice allergy they can be affected.
The body’s immune system produces immunoglobulin E (IgE – an antibody) and histamine in response to contact with the allergen. Symptoms can be mild or severe. There are many rice allergy symptoms that can occur and the treatments may vary to how severe the symptoms are and what the symptoms are.
If you have shown minor signs of being allergic to rice try to avoid the intake of rice or any food/products that contains rice. First make sure to diagnose yourself or be diagnosed to be certain if you have rice allergy.
