Which Nuts Are Allergens?

Nuts are among the foods that can cause allergic reactions. Allergic reactions are manifested by a series of symptoms that occur as a result of the body's defense system responding. In people with nut allergies, these symptoms can range from mild rashes to severe respiratory distress.

Among the nuts, the ones that most often cause allergic reactions are:

Peanuts: Peanut allergy is especially common in children and can be more serious than other nuts.

Almond: Almond allergy is rarer than peanuts.

Walnut: Walnut allergy can be seen especially with other allergies.

Hazelnut: Hazelnut allergy is a common allergy along with almond allergy.

Pistachio: Pistachio allergy is common, especially in the Middle East and Mediterranean region.

However, people who are allergic to any nut can have allergic reactions to other nuts as well. Therefore, people with nut allergies should consult their doctor before consuming all nuts. They can also minimize the risk of an allergic reaction by reading food labels and being careful when ordering food at restaurants.
