About Our Maize / Corn 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 Maize or Corn.
In the United States, maize is used almost entirely for animal feeding, as grain or fodder, but it is often eaten as a vegetable and as popcorn. Corn meal, grits, and hominy are prepared forms of maize kernels. Maize is also converted into various substances that have a wide range of usage, such as starch, syrup, dextrin, oil and zein. Maize serves in the making of whiskey and other alcoholic products, and condensed milk.
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

A corn allergy is fairly rare, and the cause is unknown. Symptoms are usually mild and corn is found in about 75 percent of all processed foods, making this allergy difficult to track. People with a family history of asthma, eczema, hives, and hay fever are at a greater risk for having a corn allergy.
If symptoms to a corn allergy are present, they may include the following:
- Reddening of the skin
A more serious corn allergy may result in anaphylaxis, and symptoms would be much more severe, such as:
- Rapid heart rate
- Trouble breathing
