Shellfish Allergy & Sea Salt
I can't seem to find a definite answer to the question, "Should a person with a shellfish allergy avoid sea salt?" I had been told once by an allergist that it could cause an allergy reaction and to avoid it. I would really like to know the answer. I am also allergic to peanuts/tree nuts and have been looking for allergy-free snack items. I go to web sites of companies which are listed on this site, and in allergy magazines, and every one of them have snacks which contain sea salt! How can they advertise these products as being free of the top allergens when they use sea salt? They list that they are free of nuts, eggs, milk, shellfish, etc. Yet, sea salt comes from the sea where the crustaceans also live. So, how can I buy a snack item and feel it is, as advertised, allergy-free?
