Notes concerning Peanut and Tree Nut allergies and Cross-Reactivity

According to Calgary Allergy "People with peanut allergy may be sensitive to other legumes." However, only your allergist specialist can really determine if this applies to you.
 
According to the article "Clinically relevant IgE-cross-reactivity of Nut allergens" , by Schein, Catherine H. , Maleki, Soheila , Teuber, Susanne "At least 30% of peanut allergic patients are also sensitive ("cross-react") to tree Nuts such as walnuts, pecans, almonds or cashews, as these contain similar proteins."
 
However, not every one with a Nut or Seed allergy will react to all Nuts or Seeds. Everyone is different, which is why we stress to always speak with your Allergist Specialist and get thoroughly tested.
