Sources for (tree)NUT-free peanuts
« on: March 05, 2013, 03:31:51 PM »
If allergic to tree nuts but NOT to peanut and need peanuts that are NOT X-contam with tree nuts . . .

If doing food challenge in physician's office and need peanuts not X-contam with tree nuts . . .

Then this thread is for you.


Soooo -- anyone have a source for these?

Wondering if there may be ORGANIC peanuts that fit this no-Xcontam-with-nut restriction?

Is this where I blame iPhone and cuss like an old fighter pilot's wife?

My DS says thank you!  Next Christmas, he can have regular haystacks!  Might just have to order some now and make them.



Ok, this may be too good to be true, I see one product of concern:  almond butter

I had to look up the difference between butter toffee and english toffee.

Do you have any more information on this company?

Hezz, I don't.  I was given the name from group at Facebook (same one that gave me list for the pn-free treenuts).

Something I've never done is CALL a peanut butter manufacturer to find out which of those brands are OK for "just nut allergic" child.  Need to spend half a day on the phone, I'm sure . . . anyone else done this yet?

If Kid #2 is not allergic to PN, then she needs to privately eat to maintain and be OK with it.

Yes, I will have to call, but my baking days in this house are pretty much over (flooring & painting next week, house on market week after, can't exactly be in the middle of huge batch of cookies and get the call for a showing).  So it will have to wait.

There MUST be some sources in Virginia.

Nothing stopping us from asking the National Peanut Council and others?

I will work on this and hope others here who might have some "know" will too!

Wondering if Peanut M&Ms would be OK for away-from-home eating for one child not PA, but possibly TNA to some treenuts?

Hmmmm . . . .

So I completely forgot about this thread.  I just got off the phone with Hampton Farms. 

The in the shell peanuts are safe for those with tree nut allergies. 

The shelled peanuts in the can (the kind I wanted, of course) are processed in the same plant as the other nuts so they are NOT safe for tree nut allergies.

Tree nut free peanuts?
« Reply #10 on: December 29, 2014, 01:51:22 PM »
So I know we have a big list of peanut free tree nuts, I need to find the opposite.  Em is missing her peanuts and all of the brands we have bought are tree nut contaminated.

TIA!

Cross-posting from the peanut thread (though I know it might be a lost cause on this board LOL).

I am searching for peanuts that are not cross-contaminated with tree nuts.  I have kept peanut butter in the diet but she loves snacking on peanuts with Granny.  She was not a happy girl when I told her no today (understatement of the century).

We have a thread for this actually.


Okay--I merged the three threads to keep information in one useful place. I'm also putting a link to the thread that we had at hyper-boards in the next post.

I'm wondering if having parentheses around "tree" makes this thread difficult to find. It was difficult for me to find via searching, yet it was on the first TN/PN forum page.  :crazy:

I'm thinking the parentheses made it difficult for YKW to find it as well.
