In case of nickel sensitivity, it is important to know which foods can be brought to the table safely and which foods to avoid.
There are two forms of nickel allergy. The first is a contact reaction , due to the simple touch of objects that contain this substance: its symptoms are mainly cutaneous (dermatitis, itching, redness, swelling). The second is instead triggered by the consumption of foods in which there are traces of nickel. In this case, the symptoms can be much heavier and also involve the gastrointestinal system. Which foods are safe for nickel allergy sufferers?
The nickel allergy diet
As we have seen above, there are people who also have an allergic reaction to foods that contain this metal. In this case, not only dermatitis and urticaria can occur , but also gastrointestinal problems (diarrhea, vomiting, cramps ) and respiratory disorders (rhinitis, asthma ).
It is therefore important to know which foods do not contain nickel, so as to be sure not to bring “prohibited” foods to the table. The same considerations apply to those suffering from nickel intolerance: although the body’s reaction mechanism is different, in both cases the ingestion of contaminated products triggers annoying symptoms .
Before establishing a diet, however, it is important to consult your doctor. Diagnosing a food allergy can be a long and difficult process, so it’s best to seek expert care. Also, not everyone has the same level of nickel tolerance: why eliminate foods that could be safely consumed?
Allergy to nickel, what to eat?
Now let’s see what are the foods that do not contain this metal, remembering however that the list is not exhaustive. Among the foods allowed for nickel allergy, there are meat , white or red, and eggs. Go ahead also for milk and dairy products, yogurt and cheeses.
As for fruit and vegetables, attention must be paid to some foods that may seem harmless, but turn out to be rich in this allergenic substance. Dried fruit is absolutely to be avoided, as well as pears, plums, kiwis, raspberries, blueberries, grapes and coconut. Vegetables to avoid include asparagus, spinach, tomatoes , lettuce, carrots, cabbage and cucumbers.
Other foods that contain nickel are legumes , whole grains and flours, cocoa, chocolate, fish and seafood. It is also better to pay attention to packaged products, preferring foods cooked in the first person. In this regard, in the kitchen he uses stainless steel or ceramic cookware .
