Possible Coconut oil allergy

Answered on May 06, 2014
Created May 05, 2014 at 5:38 AM

I've been feasting on coconut oil for a year now (cooking/eating out of the jar). I recently tried oil pulling, and started getting a scratchy throat with some coughing after 20 minutes. Should I avoid coconut oil completely since it may cause a more severe allergic reaction? Did I just recently become allergic?

Coconut oil items are alluded to as "virgin" coconut oil. Dissimilar to olive oil, there is no industry standard for the importance of "virgin" coconut oil. The term now imply that the oil is for the most part natural. For instance, virgin coconut oil normally has not been dyed, freshened up, or refined. Allergies to coconut oil are found rare.

When it comes to food allergy due to coconut oil some of the symptoms include vomiting trouble-breathing swelling of lips, itching etc. If some of these symptoms are seen then you are facing food allergy due to coconut oil.
