Food allergy to Chromium

Chromium allergy is a skin disorder that affects between 1 and 3% of the population. Hypersensitivity to metals (Nickel, Chromium, Cobalt …) is widespread even though many people do not know they are allergic.

Chrome is very present in commom leather items, in cosmetics (blue, green and yellow tones) or in metals (often associated with nickel), and it is also very present in foods. Many foods contain Chromium, and some contain more than others, such as beef, livers, eggs, tomatoes, broccoli, green beans, whole grain products, and so on.


Chromium is a trace element that helps in the metabolization of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and plays a role in the action of insulin (blood sugar regulator). However, people who are allergic to Chromium may have symptoms of skin reactions (through sweat) related to ingestion of foods with a higher chromium content.

In most cases harmless, the symptoms are varied (rashes, redness, pimples, …) and can be localized on a specific area or generalized all over the body.
