Allergy is one of the most common diseases across the globe. Despite several efforts being made, incident of allergy is continuously rising. Among the several causes, food is one of the most important reasons of allergy. In the present study, we used seven allergic food products Arachishypogaea (peanut), Glycine max (soy), Beta vulgaris (beetroot), Avena sativa (oats), Solanummelongena L.(eggplant), Brassica oleracea var. italica (broccoli) and Allium cepa (onion). Phytochemical analysis of aqueous extracts of these seven samples was done in the laboratory. Phytochemical analysis consists of assessment of primary and secondary metabolites. Primary constituents consist of free amino acids, polysaccharides, protein and chlorophyll. The main objective of the research work was to check the total content of polysaccharide and free amino acids in the selected samples.
