peanut allergic now allergic to canned soup?
17-year old boy allergic to peanuts is suddenly feeling the same peanut symptoms when he eats canned soup - including both Progresso and Campbells. No peanut is listed, nor do the soups come from a peanut facility. What in canned soup can he be allergic to? I noticed "modified food starch" and "corn protein - hydrolyzed" and barley flour on the label. Boy was tested about 10 years ago and no other food sensitivies were found. If it matters, his peanut allergy has never caused anaphlaxis, but on doc's orders we always carry epi pen. He usually feels tingling, sometimes lips slightly swell, and he throws up.
