Wheat contains many proteins. An individual may be allergic to any one of them. It will probably take a life time to isolate that protein. The solution may be to avoid wheat and wheat products.
However, the main culprit is Gluten. Try to eliminate that first. Eat Gluten free food. If it works, you have found your weak spot. Take action accordingly.
Our Immune System is perfect. It does not make mistakes. Then what happened. Why does it identify Gluten as an enemy. The original wheat grown thousands of years ago had a DNA which the body cognized as friendly. Over the years man played with the genes of wheat and mutation took place. Pesticides took part in the mutation. The present day wheat is no longer a friend of man and hence rejected. Hence the allergy. QED.
Some scientists allege that Wheat was never meant to be a food for humans.
