    I love avacados but I have decided they don't like me. I used to blame it on the onions or whatever I had it with but even making pudding does it....I get terrible gas from them. So I don't eat them anymore.

      If I eat avocado straight my tongue and throat start tingling, get itchy, and feel swollen.

      However I have noticed that whenever the avocado is mixed with lemon or lime, I seem to be OK or less affected. Someone told me that the acidity of the lemon/lime denatures proteins w/in the avocado that may be triggering the allergic reaction. I have no idea if this is true, I've never researched it, but it does seem to help. So I'll often have guacamole with lemon or lime incorporated and I do fine.
