Need help finding Cashews brands for a Challenge
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:32:48 PM »
Iím in Canada.

My son had allergies to peanuts and almonds.

He is doing a food challenge for cashews.

Does anyone know of a nut company that sells peanut free cashews?

Thanks

Hi AB!

Does your name mean you are located in Alberta? I am in Ontario, and here we can find Royal Nuts fairly easily in grocery stores like Loblaws or Longos.

Their facility is peanut free. They do process almonds and other tree nuts. They also process seeds and dried fruits.

I used their Cashews for a challenge last fall. I am also allergic to Pistachios and these would be considered ĎMay containí for those, but it was the best I could get in the time I had available. The only single process Cashews I found had to be shipped from the US and were very expensive and much greater quantities than I needed. *My allergist approved using them for my challenge based on my reaction history etc. (and also, while I donít know the age of your son, I am an adult and fully able to give consent and all that jazz).

I will try to find that thread where the specific brands were discussed for you and link it.
ETA: Here is the link Cashew Challenge
