Wine Intolerance May Be Experienced By 7 Percent Of Adults, Study Suggests

Quote:
The researchers acknowledged that the results of the study may be "limited" because not everyone completed the questionnaires. But they explained that even if none of the non-respondents had symptoms of wine intolerance, "the resulting prevalence of 1.7% (68 out of 4000 people) can be considered to be the lower limit. Thus, the prevalence of wine intolerance is much higher than previously thought and occurs at a similar rate as other common food intolerances."

Red wine seemed to be associated with the greatest number of allergy-like symptoms among the people in the study, researchers reported, and the most common reactions included having nasal congestion, feeling flushed or feeling itchy.
