How do I know if I have peanut allergy?

You would have a reaction within the hour after eating peanuts or peanut butter. But short of isolating the suspected ingredient, you can't know with 100% certainty without talking to a doctor and getting tested. If you are that concerned that you may allergic to peanuts go to the doctor.

Food reactions can happen within minutes or can be delayed for up to several hours. Not all reactions are immediate.

Following is some basic food allergy info from my website:
