cause of allergic reaction to pinto beans?

Bean protein: Pinto bean allergy is uncommon but has been described. Typically the allergen is a protein. Beans are legumes and reactions may be seen with other legumes (pea, bean, soy). It is also possible that it wasn't the pinto bean and a more common food allergen is to blame. An allergist can assist.
