The allergens in rice are called Ory s 1 and Ory s 12. They are both considered to be airway allergens.
Ory s 1 is a beta expansin protein. These are found in the cell walls of plants and are a common cause of grass pollen allergies.
Ory s 12 is a profilin protein, most commonly causing allergic reactions in the airway, like hayfever.
Allergic reactions to rice are commonly linked to Food Protein Induced Entercolitis Syndrome (FPIES).
Only barley contains beta expansin proteins as food allergens. As an airway allergen, multiple species of grasses, rye and maize all contain beta expansin.
Profilin proteins are both food and airway allergens. Other profilin airway allergens are ragweed, wormwood, grasses, birch trees, sunflower, olive, plantain, poplar, oak and maize.
