Brief Answer: Unlikely.... Detailed Answer: Hi, Metamucil does induce bloating, mild discomfort and nausea in a few people. These are side effects accompanying it. I don't think this is allergy manifestation. I would not be concerned if you have no vomiting spells, severe abdominal cramps, itching or breathing difficulty. Hope this helps. Regards
