About Our Buckwheat Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to buckwheat.
Buckwheat flour is used for bread and other baked products. The seed is processed to make noodles (known as “soba” in Japan) and is used in soups, cakes, biscuits, etc. The grain can produce edible sprouts and be made into beer. The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked.
Buckwheat is a type of flour that is considered a great alternative for those living with celiac disease. Buckwheat can be used as a substitute for wheat, barley, rye, oats, and rice. It’s a great source of fiber and nutrients.
However, buckwheat does contain a large number of proteins which is what usually causes an allergic reaction, so a buckwheat allergy is fairly common.
A buckwheat allergic reaction will most likely include the following symptoms:
- Irritation around the eyes
- Difficulty breathing
- Abdominal pain
In extreme cases, anaphylaxis can occur, which is considered a medical emergency. If you experience difficulty breathing or trouble remaining conscious, seek medical attention immediately.
