**Always check the ingredients on the label to make sure that they are made in a factory that does not cross contaminate with tree nuts/shellfish or whatever substance you or you’re loved one is allergic to.
**Note – My daughter has a sensitivity to raw apples but she can eat cooked apples just fine. Sometimes people with tree nut allergies can have mild or severe reactions to apples, mangos and other fruits from trees. Best to have a complete allergy blood test to confirm what foods could cause a potential allergic reaction.
**Note – Coconut is labeled as a tree nut but it’s also considered a seed. Everyone is different. Be sure to check with your allergist to make sure that you can ingest coconut products safely with a tree nut allergy.
***Note – Sesame seeds can cause an allergic reaction in some people who are allergic to tree nuts. My daughter eats them without a problem but again! – People may react differently. Poppy seeds (although rare) can also cause potential reactions.
