I think it would be a great idea for all the travellers out there (me the first one on the list) to have a handy, multi lingual "cheat sheet" of all the different ways of saying

"I'm very allergic to peanuts. Are there peanuts in this?".

That would help out a LOT during travels in foreign countries.

So if anyone speaking a different language than englsh could write in this thread all th different variants in seperate language posts, it could become the best thing any PA traveller could pack in his suitcase. Hope this helps many!

To start it off:

French:

"Je suis très allergique aux arachides. Y a t-il des arachides dans ceci?"

Add to that : aux amandes (to almonds), aux noix (nuts), aux noix de cajou (cashew), aux noisettes (hazelnuts)

German:
Ich bin sehn sehr allergisch gegen / Ich habe ein sehr starkes Allergie gegen:
(I am very allergic to / I have a very strong allergy to)

Nüßen / Erdnüssen /Mandeln / Cashewnüssen / Walnüssen / Pekannüssen / Haselnüssen
(nuts / peanuts /almonds / cashews/ walnuts / pecans/ hazelnuts)

Enthalt dies Nüssen? (does this contain nuts?)
or even, Gibt es Nüssen? (Are there nuts?)
Kann ich das essen? (Can I eat that?)

On a package, you might see the aforementioned nut words without the final N, or with this an ßin place of the "ss" in the middle.
