I have tried to make my own sunflower seed butter in my food processor, but even after a looong time in the processor and a fair amount of canola, I still get a "paste" so thick you can slice it! What am I doing wrong? Do I just need a better processor? We haven't retried pumpkin seeds yet - she got hives from it about a year ago when we first tried it. I'll probably wait until pumpkins start showing up in stores so I can get truly uncontaminated seeds. Thanks!

I haven't made my own but we buy Sunbutter. I find it is quite thick and has a drier, more grainy consistency than peanut butter.

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Hello! My 2.5 year old daughter has tested positive to peanuts, tree nuts, egg and dairy on a skin test (2 different times) She has had reactions to both egg and dairy, however she has never ingested any nuts. We just received the results of her first ever blood test and it confirmed egg and dairy, however it came back negative to all nuts! We will be scheduling an in office peanut challenge. My question is, since I know that false negatives are more rare than false positives, should I feel...

Thank you for this very detailed explanation. However, I'm not sure I agree with this statement "if your child can eat a food without developing any symptoms, then they are unlikely to be allergic to that food." My son has tested negative to pretty much every allergy skin prick and blood test - only positive to hazelnuts one time and walnuts another time, both in skin prick tests. He suffered from severe eczema, head to toe, and we were looking for answers. There was no particular food that...

Hi MulanMommy - It's incredible what food can do to the body - good or bad. In our son's case, he now has severe reactions, borderline anaphylaxis, with dairy, soy, gluten, corn, and tree nuts. He can not even have one bite - or a trace. Still also triggers eczema. He used to be very sensitive to tomatoes, red pepper, and cantelope, but now that his eczema is under control, he can eat these things every few days, but as you said, never more than two days in a row. The same with coconut. So...

I had my son tested IgE with an allergist because of his eczema condition. We knew his allergy to milk at age of one, hives right after 1 oz of whole milk. He was bs mostly the first 6 months, then alimentum after. He had regular Similic couple times before 6 months but no reactions. His IgE for milk is 6.29, so I think it confirmed his milk allergy. He is still on alimentum and he is 16 1/2 months. His IgE for egg white is above 50, I had not introduced egg to him yet, but with the MMR (had...

My daughter (now 16 years old) was diagnosed at age 2 and had two subsequent positive skin tests to peanuts and tree nuts, but has never had a reaction at all other than her first (to walnut) at about 1 yr old. So I was hoping that the peanut positive was a false positive all along. We had component testing done recently, using the Uknow peanut test through Phadia (Thermo Fisher Scientific) which we were told was more comprehensive and accurate and the results show a severe peanut allergy.

Re: Six-Year-Old's Heart Stops After Eating Macadamia Nut Cookie, Life Saved by First Responders

Kids With Food Allergies ·
KFA ADMIN: There is one statement in the article that is incorrect that we would like to clarify. In the U.S., food manufacturers are not required to state if food was processed in the same facility as peanuts (or any other major food allergen). FDA regulated foods are required to list top 8 allergens in the ingredients list if the food contains one of those allergens (peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish).

Thanks. I myself only have eczema, haven't tested myself for food or environmental yet. But my son is the one who suffers. He has eczema, and a severe allergy to peanuts/ tree nuts, and high allergy to wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pinto beans, tomatoes, potatoes...and a picky eater on top of all that. And highly allergic to cat/dog dander and dust mites. Very hard to find stuff he can eat, or will eat. Hoping to find some support here. ☺

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

I was complacent. My 14 year old daughter was complacent. Eye-rolls and annoyed posture every time I asked if she had her epi-pen. She doesn't remember her reaction when she was 2.75 years old and there have been many, many expired epi-pens since. I used to say it was the best money I ever threw away. Until this year, I got annoyed. I was certain I had sent in an epi-pen in the fall for school. The nurse sent an email to all delinquent parents of food allergic kids. "Your child's epi-pen is...

Re: Super Bowls of Fruit Dip (Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Egg-Free)

Take note: Although coconut is considered a "tree nut" by the Food and Drug Administration, studies have shown that coconut is not related to "tree nut allergy". Although it is possible to be allergic to coconut, most patients with tree nut allergy will not need to avoid coconut. Please consult with your allergist for recommendations based on your needs.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Bustermonkey ·
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

I have ones that are just dried tomatoes "Bella Sun Luc"i- Nut free sun dried tomatoes were really hard to find, no matter the form. I found that one brand, but never called to confirm if they are around nuts. there are no warnings on the package, and as it turns out, my child ended up being allergic to the tomatoes. I assume the dried one not in oil may need some oil added in to compensate, or be heated with water, I can't remember if the dried ones are dehydrated or slightly plump. HTH

Hi Sahba! Welcome to KFA!! The one that comes to my mind is the bars from Enjoy Life Foods .

I sort of know what you mean but my tolerance is probably different from yours. I know that a lot of granola bars and fruit bars are indeed a risk for people with tree nut and peanut allergies.

From lip balm and shampoo to moisturizers and eye shadow, cosmetics are overseen by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
