Foods and Seasonal Allergies

While pollen and mold are culprits for allergies, certain foods may serve as a trigger as well. This is called oral allergy syndrome and it’s what happens when proteins in certain fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts act like pollen. This is more common among teens and older adults and can happen in foods that we enjoyed for years and never had an issue with before.
