Likely: I agree with Dr Grieve's comments but do want to note that it is the protein part of peanuts one is allergic to and thus " de-fatting" it does not make it less allergenic.

I totally agree that you should consult an allergist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Consider gluten free & vegan foods. ...Read more
