This Raspberry Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to raspberries. Those with raspberry allergies are prone to itching, swelling, hives, throat tightness, and in the most extreme of cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with raspberry 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 raspberry allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Raspberry Allergy Test today.

How Raspberry Allergy Tests Work

For our Raspberry Allergy Test, simply place your order online and stop by one of our 4,000+ nationwide testing facilities at your convenience (no appointment required). A member of the center’s staff will collect a small blood sample via the skin prick method at which point your part of the process is done. The sample collection itself takes only a few minutes and most patients are in and out and about their day in under a half-hour. From there, your sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory and in as little as 24-72 hours, you’ll have full results regarding your raspberry intolerance.

Common Raspberry Allergy Symptoms

Raspberry intolerance is a food allergy that is often tied to an allergy to salicylates, salicylic acid, or related chemicals. Symptoms of a red raspberry and salicylate allergic reaction can include any combination of these common food allergy symptoms:

  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Hives
  • Throat tightness
  • Anaphylaxis.

How to Interpret Your Results

We strive to make interpreting your test allergy test results as straightforward as possible. Our Raspberry Allergy Test is an Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) blood test that measures your body’s sensitivity to foreign substances by testing for IgE antibodies. 

When reviewing your results, you’ll find a ‘results’, ‘flag’ and ‘reference range’ column. The ‘reference range’ denotes the threshold for an allergic reaction. The ‘result’ is the numerical value describing your sensitivity to the allergen. The outcome of your raspberry test can be found under the ‘flag’ column and reported as either normal/non-reactive or abnormal/reactive. A reactive or abnormal test flag will indicate an allergic reaction to raspberries. 

While some people may have antibodies that only react to red raspberries, it is possible to have antibodies that react to multiple allergens.

Raspberry Allergy Test vs Berry Fruit Allergy Test

There are food allergy tests available for individuals who are fairly certain that they may have a raspberry intolerance. For that, we recommend taking the Raspberry Allergy Test. Otherwise, the Berry Fruit Allergy Panel determines whether or not you are allergic to various fruits and consists of five tests for strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, cranberry and avocado allergies.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Ranging from mild to severe, an allergic reaction occurs when your immune system “defends” your body from a substance that wouldn’t otherwise pose a threat. Allergic reactions can occur from consuming, inhaling, or touching an allergen.

  • Raspberries are part of the Rosaceae family along with peaches, cherries, apples, strawberries and blackberries. 10% of all food allergies are fruit-related. Raspberries contain several known allergens and are therefore more responsible for allergic reactions in this family of fruits.

  • This test is perfect for anyone over the age of 18 wanting a more precise measure of potential aversions or allergies to raspberries. If you’ve recently experienced an adverse reaction to raspberries, or if you want to know for sure if a childhood allergy still persists, this test may be your solution.

  • We aim to deliver full, comprehensive results in a timely manner. If you do have questions about your results, our care counselors are standing by ready and willing to assist. We can even put you in touch with a physician should you require additional assistance and/or prescription medication.

  • As food allergies can be extremely dangerous and life-threatening, knowing which food products to avoid is essential. In addition, by knowing your food allergy risks, you can take precautions such as carrying an Epi-Pen to make any potential exposure less of a threat.
