Dr. Ruiz-Healy is absolutely correct. The problem is that sesame in one form or another is used in a large number of foods, particularly in restaurants, and it may be difficult to determine which, when and where.

The problem is that Sesame seed oil is not highly purified and may contain proteins that you are allergic to.
