In brief: Same for all foods

Allergic reaction to any food produces some or all of following: itchy/swollen lips/mouth/throat, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, itchy/red skin, hives, nasal congestion, chest tightness, wheezing (especially in asthmatic), light headedness, low bp.
These symptoms will occur each time as little as one sip or bite of the food is eaten. Avoid dairy until consult md.
