Allergen, Individual - Food Blue Mussel

Blue mussels are a type of shellfish that are commonly consumed worldwide. However, like many other seafood, they can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. Allergic reactions are essentially your body's immune system overreacting to substances that it wrongly perceives as harmful. In the case of blue mussels, your body can misinterpret the proteins in them as harmful invaders, leading to an allergic response.
