Is anyone out there allergic to coconut oil? My dd tested negative to coconut yet her worst reaction was from a bag of Bugles which are fried in coconut oil. I have read the ingredients on the bags (both large & small) & there are no other ingredients on there that I would think could pose a threat. There is also no cross contatmination warning. I am so stumped. We avoid coconut oil because I don't know what else to do but I can't help wondering if there's something else we should be avoiding or if these little buggers should contain the peanut/tree nut warning. I have contacted General Mills & am awaiting their response???

My 20 year-old DD (PA/TNA) developed an allergy to coconut in the last year or so.

When Quaker Canada brought out their nut-free granola bars, we were pleased, but DD found they bothered her. Coconut. Her favourite ranch dip also caused problems, and we finally figured out it was the coconut oil.

She notices the oil in things like hot chocolate mix and cookies, too.

my 6yr old just developed a coconut allergy over the summer, so it is new to us. I haven't noticed any reactions thus far, we were more checking other seeds and coconut was always questionable to me....all were positive. So now we avoid as well. We'll avoid the oil as well. Good luck!
