In brief: Cooked or raw differ

Strawberries and other berries have components that will cause your cells (mast cells) to release histamine.
This will give you the symptoms of allergy without you really having a strawberry allergy. People who have this type of reaction, can eat cooked strawberries, strawberry jelly or jam without any problem.
