What Are Peanut Allergies?
Peanut allergies are one of the most common types of of food allergies, especially among children. A peanut allergy is different from a tree nut allergy, too, because peanuts are legumes (and part of the same family as peas, lentils, and soybeans). Although research has shown many people grow out of peanut allergies, it can make cooking challenging in the meantime.
Peanut Allergy Symptoms
Here are some of the most common symptoms:
- Itchy skin or hives
- Swelling in the throat
- Tingling sensation or itching around the mouth or throat
- Runny or congested nose
Tips for Shopping Peanut-Free
Anyone with a peanut allergy needs to be extra diligent when shopping for ingredients. Peanuts are commonly found in packaged foods like cereals, baked goods, candies, and cakes, so reading labels is a must. If you’re dining out, call ahead and ask the restaurant about your options, and be sure to mention the allergy to your server when ordering. It’s also important to keep in mind that many foods without peanuts are made in a facility where peanuts are present. Depending on the severity of your allergy, it’s best to avoid these products as well, so be sure to choose labels that explicitly state they were made in peanut-free facilities.
