Foods That May Worsen Pollen Allergies
Allergic to pollen? You may want to watch out for these trigger foods.
Don’t Eat Trigger Foods
The basic rule: If a food makes you uncomfortable, don’t eat it.
If it’s a favorite food, try these tips:
- Cook it. Cooking often breaks down or alters the trigger proteins so that the immune system doesn't target them.
- Peel it. Peeling fruits such as apples may help, because most trigger proteins are in the peel.
- Can it. Canning also breaks down those proteins.
