Could I get a wheat allergy as a grown up?

Yes. Allergies to anything can develop at any time.
Yes, at any time. A person can get wheat allergy at any time, just like he can become allergic to mangoes, cashews, etc... Wheat has many different proteins that a person can be allergic to. Celiac disease (gluten allergy/enteropathy) is worse than wheat allergy because there is a damaging intestinal reaction. Celiac disease is genetic, but can sometimes be so mild that one may not notice symptoms until adulthood.
