Egg sensitivities can be vastly different than egg allergies. With an allergy, all egg products must be removed from a diet. However, egg intolerances or sensitivities can sometimes mean a person only experiences negative symptoms when consuming just the egg white and not the yolk or vice versa.
If you experience nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, itchiness, migraines or respiratory reactions after ingesting eggs you may have an intolerance. Living with an egg sensitivity may necessitate major lifestyle and diet changes.
Some of the main ingredients and foods to avoid include:
- Albumin (also spelled albumen)
- Egg (dried, powdered, solids, white, yolk)
- Meringue (meringue powder)
Taking a food intolerance test will help you learn for a fact whether or not you’re intolerant to eggs. Utilizing a simple finger-prick blood test, microarray scanning technology can identify the foods that your system is sensitive towards – all with just a few drops of blood.
