Why do some buttercreams make throat scratchy temporarily?

Is it too much sugar?

Do you know what butter creams are making your throat scratchy? It sounds like an mild allergic reaction, find out what the ingredients are and avoid them!
Scratchy throat could be the beginning of a serious allergic reaction, better to find the culprit and avoid it.

You are having an allergic reaction to something in the buttercream. About 5 years ago I noticed that I would get an itchy throat to raw apples. In the past year I went through some allergy testing. Come to find out I am highly allergic to birch trees, which carries over to apples. I can't eat raw apples, but I can eat cooked apples.

And the new dehydrated vegetables that are at my market. It is making my throat itch, so I won't eat it. I don't see anything listed in the ingredients, but something is happening to give me a reaction.

Go get tested. You can develop allergies any time in your lifetime.

My husband complains about his throat being scratchy whenever I make BC recipes with a lot of powdered sugar, like Indy's recipe. When I make an IMBC or Charlotte's recipe, he doesn't complain about it. He says it's "harsh and scratchy."

Sometimes too much sugar can make your throat tingle but it should go away with a drink or two. If it persists, you should check for allergies.

Are you using some kind of extract-almond would mean a reaction to tree nuts?

hey everyone!

i am not allergic to nuts and have almond all the time with no reaction. the scratchiness/irritation disappears after a few seconds, taht's why im thinking it the sugar like kitgrl suggested.

Like I said, you can develop allergies any time in your life. Unless you were tested say last week, you do not know for sure. Like I also said, a slight scratchiness that goes away does not mean it is life threatening, just that it is there.
