15 Foods That Are High in Lectins

Reading now: 279

Lectins are sugar-binding proteins that occur in all sorts of plants, even the ones we eat. When consumed in food, they are not harmful or toxic to humans unless the concentration is very high.

Most lectin digestion occurs within 24 hours of their ingestion because our body recognizes them as threats and helps flush them out.

However, about 1% of people don’t produce enough of an enzyme to adequately break down lectins and these individuals often experience unpleasant side effects such as gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, arthritis and migraines.
