Sunflower oil...is it a \"nut\" derivative?
My son is 2.5 years old and is allergic to walnuts and peanuts. Recently, one of his pre-school teachers called me from school asking if he can have rice cakes. She read me the ingredients, which included sunflower oil. I was not sure if this is a nut-based oil. Is sunflower or sunflower seeds considered a nut? How about mace? Is this related to nuts? I would very much appreciate it if someone who knows would please respond...Thanks.
