Adverse Effects Associated with raspberries Food

Allergic reaction.

Many people are sensitive to berries including raspberries. In fact, according to the Merck Manual, berries are one of the 12 foods most likely to trigger classic food allergy symptoms: hives, swelling of the lips and eyes, and upset stomach.

•  The others are chocolate, corn, eggs, fish, legumes (peas, lima beans, peanuts, soybeans), milk, nuts, peaches, pork, shellfish, and wheat (see wheat cereals).

Food-borne illness.

Small fruits such as berries appear to be a growing source of contamination by disease-causing organisms such as E. coli O157:H7 and salmonella. Common methods of decontamination such as vigorously washing the fruit are impractical with berries because they damage the fruit.

•  In 2007, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania delivered a report at the annual meeting of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, describing the use of pulsed ultraviolet light to decontaminate raspberries and strawberries with no observable damage to the fruit, which would give growers and food distributors a way to make their products safer before shipping.
