    Default Most Allergy-Causing Foods





    Does your body swell and start itching after eating certain foods? Well, there's probably nothing wrong with the food but there's a good chance you are allergic to something in it. Nutritionist Nimisha Shukla says food allergies are common. “Allergies take place because of an immune system dysfunction. It’s a reaction to food protein,” she explains. She lists the top ten foods that cause allergies.

    Milk: Allergy towards milk usually occurs in children, but they grow out of it by the time they are three years old explains Shukla. This occurs when your body does not produce lactase, an enzyme required to digest the predominant sugar in milk. Avoid milk, yogurt, butter, cheese and cream if you are lactose intolerant.
