About Our Legume Allergen Panel
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to five common Legumes allergens:
- Soybean (Soy)
- Chick Peas (Garbanzo beans)
- Red Kidney Beans
Examples of legumes include peanuts, beans, peas, lentils and soybeans. Legume allergies are among the most common food-related allergies and includes peanuts, which are one of the most allergenic foods. In the case of legume allergies, the body sees certain proteins in the legume as a toxin, rather than a food. Allergic reactions can be caused by ingestion, skin contact, and even inhalation. Peanut allergies typically develop during childhood and are usually lifelong. In most cases, allergy to peanuts signifies allergy to many other types of legumes. Peanut allergies have been known to cause some of the most severe allergic reactions of all food allergies, including anaphylaxis and even death.
Soy can be found in many food products, not just Asian cuisine and soy-derived foods like soy milk and soy sauce. Soy can be found in miso, tofu, vegetable broths and starches, energy bars and protein snacks, cereals, crackers, and processed meats and soups.
Did you know: An allergy to legumes is often an indicator of additional allergies, specifically to tree nuts such as almonds and coconuts. Check out our Nut Allergen Panel to get tested for the five most common tree nut allergens in a convenient, money-saving package.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 2 days
