Is It Possible To Be Allergic To Grape Juice?

Is it possible to be allergic to grape juice? Every time I drink it, I get a fire sensation in my throat that feels like instant strep throat. It doesn't last for all that long (it varries depending on how much I drank, but it HURTS.

Answer

Hi there... In theory, it's possible to be allergic to almost anything. So, a food allergy could be at work here. It could also be a food intolerance, though those symptoms usually tend more to be digestive in nature. In any event, I think I'd stop drinking grape juice. If you do have a sensitivity to it, continuing to expose yourself to it can only make things worse.

For more information, you might consult with an allergist.

To your health,

Kathi
