Foods fried in peanut oil
I was reading about some tests that were done involving PA people eating foods fried in peanut oil and it said that most people didn't react. I also read somewhere recently that alot of people who are allergic to raw pecans can eat cooked pecans because the heating process breaks down the allergen. I wonder if this is true with peanuts too. My son (age 2 and extremely PA) ate a hushpuppy the other day and I panicked after finding out it had been cooked in peanut oil. I went ahead and gave him Benadryl just in case but he never showed any signs of a reaction. Have any of you or your children had reaction to something fried in peanut oil?
