The current review paper highlights the complicacies associated with communities relying on wheat as their dietary staple. Although, wheat is an important source of nutrients but is also linked with allergenic responses in genetically susceptible subjects. The wheat proteins especially α-amylase inhibitors, ω-5 gliadins, prolamins, nonprolamin, glucoprotein, and profilins are of significance importance. The allergenic responses are further categorized into IgE-mediated and non-IgE-mediated… 

Wheat-induced food allergy in childhood: ancient grains seem no way out

Patients with sensitization to wheat show a significant IgE binding against both modern and ancient grain varieties of the genus Triticum, and ancient grains do not appear to have a generally reduced risk for wheat allergy sufferers.

Intestinal Barrier Function in Gluten-Related Disorders

The mucosal barrier of the small intestine is summarized, the aspects of barrier dysfunction observed in all three gluten-related disorders are summarized and literature data is reviewed in favor of a primary involvement of the epithelial barrier in the development of celiac disease and non-celiac wheat sensitivity.

The Gluten Gene: Unlocking the Understanding of Gluten Sensitivity and Intolerance

The present review considers genetic characteristics of gluten protein components, focusing on their role in the incidence of gluten-related diseases, and genetic modifications conducted to produce wheat with less immunological properties.

Wheat/Gluten-Related Disorders and Gluten-Free Diet Misconceptions: A Review

This review aims to critically discuss the nutritional components of wheat, highlighting both the health benefits and wheat/gluten-related disorders, in order to address common misconceptions associated with wheat consumption.

Recent advances in alleviating food allergenicity through fermentation

It is conceivable that a combination of mixed strain fermentation with additional processing, such as heat treatment, pulsed light, and ultrasonication, will efficiently reduce the allergenicity of various foods and preserve their unique taste and nutritional components, providing significance for patients with allergies.

Health Hazards Associated with Wheat and Gluten Consumption in Susceptible Individuals and Status of Research on Dietary Therapies

The evidence for the perception that disorders related to the consumption wheat are increasing is considered and strategies and therapies that may be used to reduce the adverse impacts of wheat on the health of susceptible individuals are discussed.

Adverse Reactions to Wheat or Wheat Components.

The present review systematically describes the characteristics of wheat-related intolerances, including their etiology, prevalence, the components responsible, diagnosis, and strategies to reduce adverse reactions.

Clinical and diagnostic aspects of gluten related disorders.

Inventions in the field of research that emerged after the creation of the new nomenclature for gluten-related disorders are analyzed, with particular attention to the new European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition guidelines for CD and the most recent research about non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

The Pathogenesis of Allergy: A Brief Introduction

Allergic diseases are mainly IgE-mediated diseases that include allergic rhinitis, allergic asthma, allergic dermatitis, and food allergy, etc. The precise causative factors of allergic diseases are

Current applications of gluten-free grains – a review

This review profiled some of the common grains, their characteristics, functionality and the various food types they are used for and reviewed the impact of the current food processing aids like starch, hydrocolloids used for improving functionality, and processing techniques like extrusion suitable for making remarkable GF foods.



Proteomic analysis in allergy and intolerance to wheat products

The main aspects of current and prospective applications of mass spectrometry and proteomic technologies to the structural characterization of gluten proteins and derived peptides are critically presented, with a focus on issues related to their detection, identification and quantification, which are relevant to the biochemical, immunological and toxicological aspects of wheat intolerance.

Wheat ω-5 gliadin is a major allergen in children with immediate allergy to ingested wheat☆☆☆

The results of this study show that ω-5 gliadin is a significant allergen in young children with immediate allergic reactions to ingested wheat and could be used to reduce the need for oral wheat challenges in children.

Differentiating Food Allergies from Food Intolerances

This review examines the various forms of food intolerances (immunoglobulin E [IgE] and non–IGE mediated), including celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, which are two increasingly recognized disorders.

In vitro model for IgE mediated food allergy

Small intestinal organ culture is a functional model of food allergy and could be considered as an in vitro oral food challenge, with evident reduction of costs and risks for the patients.

Most of the patients outgrow their allergies to milk, soy, egg, and wheat, and some to peanut also, therefore, patients should be periodically reassessed and diagnosed with food intolerance.

Low Molecular Weight Glutenins in Wheat-Dependant, Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis: Allergenicity and Antigenic Relationships with Omega 5-Gliadins

WDEIA patients suffering from wheat-dependant, exercise-induced anaphylaxis are able to promote local inflammation and they share common epitopes with ω5-gliadins, which is partly as independent allergens.

Hydrolysed wheat proteins present in cosmetics can induce immediate hypersensitivities

Results show the role of hydrolysis on the allergenicity of wheat proteins, both through skin or digestive routes, and at least part of the epitopes involved is pre‐existing in unmodified wheat proteins.
