This Cranberry Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to cranberries. Those with cranberry allergies are prone to itching, swelling, hives, throat tightness, and in the most extreme of cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with cranberry allergies can be allergic to other fruits as well. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with a multi-panel fruit allergy test. To identify a specific cranberry allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Cranberry Allergy Test today.

Common Symptoms of a Cranberry Allergy

Cranberries may not be a common culprit of food allergies or one you may initially consider if you have allergy-like symptoms. However, it is possible to have an allergy to cranberry. If you have consumed or been exposed to cranberry and had what you think is an allergic reaction, testing can help you get answers. Cranberries are known to have high concentrations of salicylates, which in some people can trigger an allergic response. In addition to cranberries, salicylates are also found in other natural food sources or synthetic sources such as certain medicines and personal care products. For some cranberry allergy sufferers, the symptoms may be gradual, but for others, the reaction can be sudden and severe, with potentially life-threatening consequences. Knowing whether or not you have a cranberry allergy can help you avoid the allergen if necessary or narrow down what may be causing your food allergy symptoms.

Examples of symptoms you can experience with a cranberry allergy include:

  • Itchy mouth
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hives
  • Congestion
  • Headache
  • Feeling faint
  • Gastrointestinal distress such as vomiting or diarrhea
  • Stomach cramping
  • Skin conditions

Signs of anaphylaxis include drops in blood pressure, feeling of impending doom, closing of the throat, chest pain and tightness, or loss of consciousness.1

How to Interpret the Results of Your Cranberry Allergy Test

Once you receive an email that your results are ready to be viewed, you can log in to our secure and confidential portal with the credentials provided to go over your results. When you view your cranberry allergy test results, you will be able to see whether you have normal results, which indicate no reaction to the allergen or abnormal results indicating that there was an immune response to the allergen. Furthermore, the cranberry allergy test will provide a value that can help you determine the sensitivity to cranberry and the likelihood of a reaction from the allergen. The higher the number, the bigger the immune response of your blood sample to the allergen — and the more likely you have a food allergy to cranberry.

Cranberry Allergy Test vs. Berry Fruit Allergy Test

While our cranberry allergy test will evaluate your likelihood of an allergy to cranberry, it does not test for other berries and potential allergens. If you think you may have an allergy to strawberries, blueberry, raspberry, or avocado, consider also ordering a berry fruit allergy test to find out.

How Many People Suffer from a Cranberry Allergy?

Cranberry allergy is not one of the Top 8 allergens in the U.S. and is a rare allergy compared to other foods. While there is little research on how many people in the population are allergic specifically to cranberries, there are frequent experiences of individuals that suffer from a salicylate allergy or intolerance.2

What is an Allergic Reaction to Cranberry?

Allergic reactions can look different in each person and can occur by eating, drinking, touching, or even breathing in the culprit. When you are allergic to a particular allergen, your body will create an immune response, mistaking the substance as a threat to your body. This immune response can cause uncomfortable symptoms and can be life-threatening in some rare and severe cases.

Does This Panel Test for All Berry Allergies?

No. The cranberry allergy test only tests for an allergic response to cranberry. Consider one of our many food allergy tests for other fruits, berries, or food concerns.

Who Should Take the Cranberry Allergy Test?

Our tests are developed for adults ages 18 and up with concerns or questions about food allergies or intolerances. If you have experienced symptoms that you believe are an allergy to cranberry or another substance, food allergy testing is the best way to get answers and help you take charge of your health. Our allergy tests can help determine whether you currently have an allergy or whether an allergy you have had in the past has been outgrown and surpassed over time.
