I was wondering what some other names of ingredients are actually nut products that appear in food that I may not realize. There are some veggie burgers that make me itch really bad for a few hours after eating them, I think that one of the first ingredients was hydrolized plant protein?

That could be a peanut ingrediant. I don't eat veggi burgers anymore.
Vegetable Protein could be peanut also.
Araches (spelling?)
Other names for the peanut are goober, pinder, earthnut, groundnut, and ground pea.

Try Morningstar Farms veggie burgers--peanut free, and they label well.
There is a thread or two around here about other names for peanut. You might try searching for the "hidden sources" thread. I think it's in Main but not sure.

Arachis oil is peanut oil.

I have read the lists of alternative names for peanut, but have not memorized them all and do not carry them with me as I thought the 2006 law required manufacturers to state it plainly (i.e., peanut) if it's in the ingredients. I know this wouldn't apply to things made outside the U.S., but am I wrong that U.S. manufacturers would have to state "peanut" instead of just hydrolized plant protein, etc. if it were an ingredient? (We don't just go off labels since they don't have to label for shared lines and such, but it's the initial screen.)

I've seen arachis on labels (maybe on body lotions) and my doctor told us to stay away from veg. protein/plant protein because it can be from peanuts. But I haven't seen any of the other names for it on labels.
Morningstar farms taste really good. I can't eat them because of other food allergies (I don't remember if it was carrots). I really miss them.

thanks for all of the info. I think I had the Morning Star veggies burgers & something in them made me itch like crazy. I've had them on quite a number of times with the same reactions.
I will check the labels next time I go grocery shopping.
