Buckwheat Sensitivity Growing in Italy

Thanks to FoodsMatter for alerting me to this one on their newsletter. A study showing that yet another grain/pseudo-grain is starting to show as an issue, this time buckwheat in Italy.

I wonder if Italians happen to eat a lot of it or something? And I wonder if they did IgE classical allergy testing and what would happen to those figures if they tested food intolerance? I bet they would go up.

Interesting, too, that they imply that buckwheat allergy is more prevalent in Asian countries, although that could be because that’s where most studies have been done maybe.

You can read the abstract here.
