I've noticed every time I eat heinz baked beans I wake up with a very runny nose, congested the next day, any ideas what's in it that I could be reacting to?
I'm currently trying to give up gluten as I also react to that. I thought I may be reacting to tomatoes but don't seem to have a problem if I eat a normal slice of tomato?

Oooh! Someone else who is reacting to Heinz beans!

I break out in hives, so I've stopped eating them. I was allergy tested for other reasons (ANA to shellfish, very allergic to mould, react to lots of other stuff) and the allergist could not work out why I was reacting. The scratch test was ok for navy beans. We are stumped. Once, I would dismiss as cross contamination. It happened twice though, with different batches. confused

I'm in Australia. Not helpful for you, but I was so excited that someone else is in my boat. grin Hope you work it out.

Well it's not gluten as Heinz beans are gf, is there any celery in it? That's quite a common one that goes unnoticed

Just had a quick google and cassia cayenne and clover are hidden potential causes according to Heinz themselves along with spirit vinegar and haricot beans which 5% of people with a nut allergy react to

Thanks, I will look into them other ingredients,it doesn't seem to be anything obvious.
I think I need to have some allergy testing done but don't know how to go about this

It could be the beans themselves, they are a legume so the same family as peanuts.
