Hi, I am new to this forum. I was recently diagnosed with severe seed allergies and several others allergies. I am looking for as much information on Sesame and Sunflower(oil too) allergies as possible. I am having a hard time finding safe foods and baking supplies. Any help would be appreciated. It is all a little overwhelming.

Thx

Welcome!! OOoh, sesame is such a toughie becaue of the lack of labeling laws for it in both the US and Canada. I'm allergic to sesame, too.  And wow--sunflower is just everywhere these days. 

I hope you find this a helpful community for dealing with your allergies!

The good news for you is that we have at least one regular around here that is an adult with both of those allergies.

I also happen to know that she makes a mean popover, and bakes other lovely things.   :thumbsup:

A very warm welcome to you, Shasta!
