Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine explored the warning signs of a wheat allergy. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Wheat intolerance seems to be an ever-increasing wellness threat these days, but this is mainly because people are becoming more aware of it. The more pressing health concern is wheat allergy, which is one of the more common food allergies in children. The problem with this allergy is that wheat can be found in many foods, including things you’d never think of (like beer and ketchup) and so avoiding wheat – which is the primary treatment for wheat allergy – can be a pain. So how can you tell if you or your child has a wheat allergy?’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/12/wheat-see-tell-wheat-allergy/#sthash.1DL8seXY.dpuf)
