In brief: Foods not allergy

Foods that we eat can effect our breath and the way our body smells.
Garlic, onions and curry spices all are absorbed and then secreted in sweat altering body fragrance. It's not an allergy, in fact, it's physiologic. Foods that we eat are not completely broken down in the small intestine & enter the circulation. This is not leaky gut syndrome. Igg antibodies protect us from any potential harm.
