Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Cultivated Wheat

Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Cultivated Wheat

Cultivated wheat, known scientifically as Triticum aestivum, is one of the most widely cultivated cereal grains worldwide. It's a staple food used in the production of flour for bread, pasta, and various other food products. However, during the pollination season, wheat plants release pollen which can be a source of allergens for certain individuals. Wheat pollen allergy is less common than wheat protein allergy but can cause symptoms in sensitized individuals.

The Allergen, Individual - Grass Pollen Cultivated Wheat test is used to determine if an individual is allergic to wheat pollen. This is done by detecting specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the blood, which are produced in response to an allergen such as wheat pollen.
