About Our Cinnamon 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 true cinnamon, a spice derived from Cinnamomum verum trees.
Cinnamon comes from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum tree, and there are four major types of cinnamon: C. verum (zeylanicum), C. cassia (aromaticum), C. burmannii, and C. loureiroi. True cinnamon, called Ceylon, is derived from the C. verum tree. Ceylon has been found to have many health benefits, including being an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial. However, Ceylon is not typically what's found in supermarkets across the U.S. The main type of cinnamon found in grocery stores is Cassia, or "Chinese cinnamon." True cinnamon is lighter, harder to find, and tastes sweeter, whereas Cassia is thicker, darker, and has a more robust flavor.
This IgE allergy test tests for allergic reaction to true cinnamon derived from the C. verum/ C. zeylanicum tree.
Cinnamon is the most common spice allergy. Symptoms of a cinnamon allergy include:
- Stomach pain
- Tingling, itching or swelling of the face
- Difficulty breathing
- Anaphylactic Shock
If you have a cinnamon allergy, it's best to steer clear of all instances of cinnamon in daily foods. Cinnamon is commonly found in the following:
- Baked goods
- Puddings and desserts
- Candy and chewing gum
- Breakfast cereals
- Curries and flavored rice
- Spice blends
- Soups and sauces
- Herbal teas, specialty coffees, and other drinks
If you find that it's impossible to completely avoid cinnamon, consider carrying emergency antihistamines and/or an EpiPen in case of accidental exposure.
