I've been having a bad allergic reaction on and off for weeks. Couldn't figure it out.... but I did notice that it would come and go.... and they only thing I could think I had on those days was an APPLE!!!
I didn't test pos for apple allergies.... so I did a little detective work.
I noticed on the bag it said the apples were coated with wax or shellac to preserve them...... OK, no problem there, but I hit google and checked it out
Halfway down the article I came to this:
"Alkyl naphthalene sulphonates may be used as spreading agents on waxy fruits."
Of course.... the thing I'm MOST allergic to!!!
Took a week to figure it out. That's why food allergy's are so FREAKING WEIRD!!!!
No problem, now the next time I eat an apple.... I'll make sure I picked it right off of the tree!!!!!
