Minor food allergy

I recently took an allergy test and it came up positive for broccoli and green string beans.

I just find it weird how I would eat those vegetables often but never (and i'm grateful for this) got a serious reaction, or a noticeable one.

I was just wondering how I got away with eating those foods without ever realizing anything.

Hi, your symptoms could be due to food intolerance. This can cause mild symptoms which may not be noticeable. Up to 20% of the population perceive themselves as suffering from food allergy but only 1-2% of adults have genuine food allergies. The most common culprits are peanuts, milk, eggs, soy and shellfish. Maintain a food diary and note down and monitor your symptoms. This may help to track your symptoms. Regards.

That's very strange, I am allergic to dust, pollen, etc. Luckily I am not allergic to any vegetables!
