Corn Allergy is a relatively uncommon allergy. Most corn allergy reactions are mild, but severe reactions have been reported. Corn allergy can result in anaphylaxis after the ingestion of corn or corn-related foods, but severe reactions after exposure to cornstarch in surgical gloves have also been reported.
Corn is a cereal grain with proteins that are similar to those in other cereal grains such as wheat. Unlike wheat, which is a common food allergen, allergic reactions to corn are much less common. Corn allergy symptoms can occur as a result of eating both raw and cooked corn. Those with corn allergy may also have typical allergic rhinitis and/or asthma, upon exposure to corn pollen, grass pollen, and cornstarch.
As with other food allergies, avoidance of corn and corn-related foods is the main way to prevent future reactions.
It is important to remember that food manufacturers may change the ingredients in the product without warning. It is a good idea to always read the product label before consuming the product. It is much easier to prevent a food-allergic reaction than to treat one.
