An allergen is any substance that can cause an allergic reaction in people. The immune system of many people recognizes allergens as foreign or dangerous particles in the body. As a result, the immune system reacts by making a type of antibody to defend against the allergen which causes various symptoms to be portrayed by the human body. This causes great difficulty to the person experiencing them, in some cases, it can even cause deadly situations. This is why those people have to be careful of what they eat. Since there are many products in the normal cupcakes or cakes in general which can be the cause of allergic reaction in many people thus, there is a need for allergen free cupcakes.
Common foods that can cause allergies
Some of the most common ingredients found in a cupcake that can cause an allergic reaction can be milk, wheat or wheat flour or gluten, eggs, peanuts, soybeans, vanilla, tree nuts, and maize or corn. Since these ingredients are essential to the recipe of cupcakes, therefore, they need to be replaced with better or non-allergic ingredients for the people who might face difficulties due to allergic reactions. This is the basic idea behind making allergen free cupcakes.One must also keep in mind that since these allergies can become severe if left untreated, the people who experience such symptoms must be taken to the hospital immediately to prevent any casualties or accidents.
