Certain factors may put you at greater risk of developing a wheat allergy:

  • Family history. You're at increased risk of allergy to wheat or other foods if your parents have any food allergies or other allergies such as hay fever.
  • Age. Wheat allergy is most common in babies and toddlers, who have immature immune and digestive systems. Most children outgrow wheat allergy.
