Buckwheat, an important crop in some regions of the world, is not taxonomically related to wheat. Common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) is grown in Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Nepal, and Bhutan (1). There is also a traditional use of buckwheat dishes in Russia and Europe, and large-scale cultivation for the Japanese market in Canada and the USA. Tartary buckwheat (F. tataricum) is grown in some parts of China (2, 3). Buckwheat allergy is an IgEmediated immediate-type reaction… Expand

Topics from this paper

Seven Chinese patients with buckwheat allergy.
TLDR
The data suggest that buckwheat can induce various clinical manifestations and public education with effective avoidance measures should be an integral part of the management strategy. Expand
A Review on Epidemiological and Clinical Studies on Buckwheat Allergy
TLDR
Buckwheat allergy is a neglected allegy deserving further attention but severe allergic reactions are rare. Expand
Understanding buckwheat allergies for the management of allergic reactions in humans and animals
TLDR
The different types of buckWheat allergens are introduced and how each buckwheat allergen contributes to the diagnosis of buckwheats allergy is discussed, which may be beneficial in overcomingbuckwheat allergies in humans and animals. Expand
Allergenic potential and enzymatic resistance of buckwheat
TLDR
The results suggest that buckwheat proteins have strong resistance to enzyme degradation, which may be attributed in part to the allergenic potential of buckWheat. Expand
Buckwheat allergy: a potential problem in 21st century Britain
TLDR
Two cases of buckwheat allergy that presented to the UK allergy service recently are presented, including a 57-year-old man presented with anaphylaxis after eating home-baked bread prepared using buckWheat flour bought in France and a 63- year-old lady presented with bronchospasm and urticaria after consuming health-food muesli. Expand
PCR Method for Detecting Trace Amounts of Buckwheat (Fagopyrum spp.) in Food
TLDR
A PCR method to detect buckwheat DNA by using primers corresponding to the internal transcribed spacer region and the 5.8S rRNA gene is described, which should benefit food manufacturers, clinical doctors, and allergic patients by providing information on the presence of buckWheat contamination in food. Expand
Tartary Buckwheat in Human Nutrition
TLDR
Buckwheat can provide health benefits due to its contents of resistant starch, mineral elements, proteins, and in particular, phenolic substances, which prevent the effects of several chronic human diseases, including hypertension, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and gallstone formation. Expand
Buckwheat Allergy: An Emerging Clinical Problem in Europe
TLDR
The history of buckwheat allergy, its clinical presentation, its increase in European countries during the last few years, and the main case reports, case series and epidemiological surveys on buckWheat allergy are described and discussed. Expand
Antioxidant and Rutin Content Analysis of Leaves of the Common Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) Grown in the United Kingdom: A Case Study
TLDR
UK-grown buckwheat has potential as a commercial source of rutin or as a functional food, including fagopyrin levels and the antioxidant assays. Expand
Breeding Buckwheat for Increased Levels and Improved Quality of Protein
TLDR
The grain embryo is a rich source of proteins, so breeding buckwheats with larger embryos is a possible strategy to increase protein levels in Tartary and common buckwheat grain, but chemical analysis of the grain is the most relevant criterion for assessing grain protein levels and quality. Expand

Review on buckwheat allergy
TLDR
Although occupational health problems arising from exposure to grain dust are well known, the specific health hazards related to handling, processing, and consumption of buckwheat have not been well studied until this century. Expand
Buckwheat-induced anaphylaxis: a case report.
TLDR

TLDR
The incidence of anaphylactic shock due to buckwheat was higher than those due to egg and milk allergy, and it is important to withdraw buckWheat food from school lunch and picnic meals. Expand
Cross‐reactivity between buckwheat and latex
TLDR
Two additional cases are described in which the clinical history as well as the results of RAST-inhibition experiments led to the conclusion that latex contains epitopes which show crossreactivity with buckwheat. Expand
BUCKWHEAT-POISONING: WITH REPORT OF A CASE IN MAN
TLDR
The etiology of fagopyrismus presents several features which deserve careful consideration and may be a vesicular, pustular, phlegmonous, or even gangrenous dermatitis, and inflammatory changes in the mucous membranes, the brain, nerves and lungs. Expand
Buckwheat Allergy: Health Food, an Inhalation Health Risk
TLDR
Exposure to comparatively low levels of buckwheat dust may induce a definite risk of rapidly ensuing allergy, and it is obvious that persons without atopic stigmata, such as an earlier history of allergy or the occurrence of allergic diseases in relatives, risk becoming allergic. Expand

TLDR
The authors have come to a conclusion that the buckwheat allergose is the model of the type I allergy (that is immediate type allergy) proposed by Coombs and Gell. Expand
Identification and characterization of the major allergens of buckwheat
TLDR
The serologic findings of BW food allergy are analyzed and its major allergenic components are characterized, which indicate that Buckwheat is a major food allergen in patients with food allergy. Expand
Three cases of childhood nocturnal asthma due
to buckwheat allergy
TLDR
This study focuses on Buckwheat chaff‐stuffed pillows, which can be contaminated with BF during the process of pilling, and many Korean children and adults use BCP for health reasons. Expand
