In conclusion, only a minority of bakers had detectable CCD-specific IgE, and all were cosensitised to wheat flour and grass pollen. Cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants are likely to play a role in crossreactivity between wheat flour and grass pollen in the
minority of bakers who have CCD-specific IgE. Overall, the risk of CCDs interfering in wheat flour-specific IgE assays is very low.
