Hidden Peanut In Food

When reading the label to check for hidden peanut, look out for;

Arachis
Bouillon
Emulsified ingredients
Food additive 322
Hydratyed vegetable protein
Lecithins
Mandelonas

Foods that may contain peanut(Not All)

Cereals
Biscuits
Mixed nuts
Salad dressings
Nougat
Brownies
cereal bars
Cakes
Asian food ( they use a lot of nuts in cooking)

It is impossible to name all the food that contain peanut, my advice is to read all labels.

If you have a peanut allergy watch out for peas and beans, they have the same proteins as peanuts. Not everone who are allergic to peanuts are allergic to peas and beans, but they can be. In Cathal’s case he is allergic to all three.
