Possibly: If the oil to which you are referring is 100% purified, then all of the protein has been removed and it is generally considered safe.

An allergist can help sort this out from true walnut/pecan allergy. ...Read more
I just ate walnuts, never got tested for allergies, I just avoided them. My throat and tongue are swelling. I had them an hour ago. Should I get help?
Good question. Yes: Most patients with atopic dermatitis or eczema, have regular nasal allergies, and many have asthma as well. Allergists prescribe immunotherapy for those conditions, and often the atopic dermatitis improves. There have been less studies on immunotherapy for atopic dermatitis than for the other two conditions, so the proof that it works isn't quite as strong. It doesn't usually hurt to try, carefully. ...Read more
