Can you be allergic to almonds but drink almond milk with no problem?

Can you be allergic to almonds but drink almond milk with no problem?

Unlikely: Since almond milk is made from raw almond soaked in water, some allergens will leak out into the almond milk in the preparation. If you are allergic to almond, it is best to avoid almond milk as well. One can guess that when almond is roasted, the allergenic property may change and thus accounting for the discrepancy in reactions. If avoidance is not possible, contact your allergist to clarify ...Read more

Can my 2 year old be allergic to almond milk but not to almonds? He eats them daily no reaction, tried almond milk and vomited 3 times right after,

Unlikely: If your 2 year old had a true IgE-mediated allergic reactions to almond this allergy would manifest with both almonds and with almond milk. Given your concern and consistency of reaction I would have your child avoid almonds until seen by an Allergist for skin or blood testing to confirm/deny allergy.

My baby's body rash is getting worse. Concerned it might be an allergic reaction to almond milk. What should I do?

My baby's body rash is getting worse. Concerned it might be an allergic reaction to almond milk. What should I do?

Don't worry: First don't stress out. Babies get rashes all the time for various very common reasons. Second, why are you giving almond milk? You can stop it if you'd like. This may provide data as to whether or not it is involved. Third, take photos of the rash progression and see the pediatrician because only eyes-on can really determine the type of rash. Could be allergy; I'd sooner blame a virus or eczema. ...Read more

What happens if my boyfriend (allergic to peanuts) drank almond milk without having a reaction, can he eat powdered almond?

Probably: Peanut and almond are not cross reactive. If there is no history of almond allergy in the first place, then drinking almond milk confirms no allergy. That said you have to make sure that the almond powder is not processed in a factory which also makes peanut products. ...Read more

I had cereal with almonds in it and almond milk and after a couple of hours my throat began to itch and kind of closed in. Could I be allergic?

I had cereal with almonds in it and almond milk and after a couple of hours my throat began to itch and kind of closed in. Could I be allergic?

YES.: This is concerning. Anytime the airway is compromised, you could be in trouble - and allergic symptoms may worsen with repeated exposures to an allergen. I would recommend that you discuss this with your doctor. S/he may recommend allergy testing to identify what - if anything - you are allergic to. In the meantime, do not re-expose yourself to almonds or other nuts from trees. Be careful. ...Read more

I am allergic to almonds (itchy mouth and it becomes difficult to breath), but I am fine with almond milk (i have a dairy allergy), why is this?

Good question: First thing that comes to mind is that you might not be allergic to the actual nut protein but to a common fumigant used to treat almonds during production. (in fact, seeing your other allergies reinforces this possibility.) an interesting read: http://foodidentitytheft. Com/trying-to-avoid-almonds-that-are-gassed-heres-a-little-guide/ *don't use this guess of mine as a reason to try almonds again*. ...Read more

I am not allergic To almonds but developed an itchy rash and upset stomach after drinking almond milk. Must I be allergic to an additive?

Not clear.: You may be allergic to either almonds or to another ingredient in the milk, or it may just be a sensitivity to one of those components, without being an allergy. Your choices are to either just not drink almond milk, or to see an allergist to be tested. Good luck. ...Read more
