"Oleosines in sesame allergy"

--- Quote ---Oleosins have been described by others [2], and are important allergens from sesame seed. Since they are hydrophobic, they are not present at commercial extracts or extract prepared from sesame seed in saline, or the CAP system extract.

"Clinical Characteristics Of - And Predictive Diagnostic Factors For - Sesame Seed Allergy In
Food-Allergic Children"

--- Quote ---a significant proportion of sesame-seed-allergic children were able to tolerate low amounts of sesame ingestion. This seems to be a common clinical finding in sesame allergy, perhaps reflecting peculiarities of sesame allergens and digestive processing thereof.

--- Quote --- tolerance of loose seeds does not always confirm tolerance of sesame concentrates

Just a reminder .... sesame-allergic people should strictly avoid all sesame, including cross-contamination, unless their allergist tells them otherwise.

"Sesame allergy in Britain: a questionnaire survey of members of the Anaphylaxis Campaign."

--- Quote ---Sesame should be identified clearly as an ingredient and separately from nuts and peanuts when it may be an allergen contaminant. People at potential risk need clear allergy diagnosis and informed guidance to enable them to avoid this key allergen more easily.

"Cross reactivity of seed allergens"

--- Quote ---I think your summary of the literature suggesting that we do not have a great deal of detail on the cross reactivity of ingested seeds is a fair assessment. The 2S, 7S, 11S storage proteins are common to many seeds and could provide cross reactivity. However, the clinical evidence of the importance of this cross-reactivity is not well substantiated.
