The non-allergy of chlorogenic acid was demonstrated by the study result of allergy with different purity of chlorogenic acid and comprehensive analysis of literature.


The allergies of different samples, which contained the different purity of chlorogenic acid extracts, chlorogenic acid for injection, interior solution of dialysis, external solution of dialysis, post-term chlorogenic acid for injection and chlorogenic acid for injection with degradation, were validated with active systemic anaphylaxis and passive cutaneous anaphylaxis on rats and guinea pigs respectively. The range of molecular weight of macromolecular remains after dialysis were identified by LC-MS.


Allergic reactions were happened in dialysis isolated macromolecular substances, which were identified by LC-MS, and lower purity extracts (purity of chlorogenic acid < or = 40%), while the reactions were not happened in isolated micromolecular substances and high purity samples (purity of chlorogenic acid > or = 92%).


Macromolecules in lower purity of chlorogenic acid extracts were relative closely to the allergen causing anaphylaxis, but not the chlorogenic acid, which was demonstrated according to the study result and analysis of literatures home and abroad.
