Food Allergies

8 posts in this topic

Most of us have more food allergies than just wheat, barley, and rye but I feel like one of my allergies is kind of strange and I haven't met anyone outside of my family that has it. I'm allergic to cinnamon, have been since I was 20. I never had a problem with it when I was younger and made a lot of desserts with it because it helps keep away illness. Is any one else allergic to Cinnamon? I wish I wasn't, I have gotten used to not eating it but the smell is so yummy! Even if it does make me sneeze and my face itchy :-/

Two spices that I like are fennel and fenugreek.  Fennel has a light licorice flavor and I use in gluten-free muffins or cookies.  Fenugreek tastes somewhat like maple.  My family likes the flavor.  I also sometimes use peppermint leaves for a light minty flavor.

 

I am missing cinnamon, but I can possibly eat it again one day. I know, one can't help smelling it from afar when it is being baked.   Yet, some other spices are a nice change of pace.

So you are allergic to cinnamon too? When did it develop?

I've only met one other person who's allergic to cinnamon.  That must stink.  Especially around Christmas time when everything is all cinnamon-y.  What a drag.

I have a food intolerance to cinnamon, but the hope is that as my body calms down and my digestion improves that it won't be a problem anymore.  I have got some other foods back, but since spices are so small, they are not my first priority to get back in.

So you are allergic to cinnamon too? When did it develop?

I found out by being tested for antibodies to cinnamon and tested positive. It registered as an intolerance.  I waited the indicated amount of time and longer before I tried it.  A week or so ago, I tried a supplement that had cinnamon in it.  It caused a unique reaction that I didn't get from anything else  I got aching joints and my usual general swelling. .  Use to get achy joints mysteriously in my gluten life.  This is the first trouble I had trying to add back in foods. 

 

I think that I would rather live without cinnamon than potatoes; I am not quite sure.  I say that because I tried mashed potatoes before I went on the cinnamon riddened supplement.  When My joints ached, I blamed it on the potato trial.  But my joints still hurt 8 days later, so then I noticed the cinnamon in the supplement.  I stopped taking it and my joints stopped aching the next day.

 

Soon, I will enjoy mashed potatoes again, perhaps for the last time.  I can live without the achy joints.

I have a diagnosed allergy to nutmeg. Like most of my other delayed reaction allergies, consuming nutmeg gives me days bloating and gut pain and sometimes diarrhea.  Many people have spice allergies.  I'm also allergic to vanilla.  I'm still recovering from my last accidental ingestion, which caused all the above mentioned symptoms.
