I emailed [email]chris@peanutallergy.com[/email] about an email he sent me in Dec. about hydrolyzed Plant Protien, He suggested I post my letter because I brang up topics that need to be discussed, so here is my letter in it's entirerty:

So sorry for not getting back to you sooner I have not checked email in so long,anyways I heard about Hydrolyzed Plant Protein from my sons allergist 2 years ago, he informed me that it was made with peanut oil, I asked about Hydrolized Soya Protien, and he said that it is made without peanut oil, I watch my labels, but I have noticed that some companies are changing their listings on the whole hydrolyzed protien and listing the ingrediants in the protiens, I don't let my son have anything with peanut oil, nuts of any kind, hydrolyzed plant or soya protien, I write companies when I have a concern, I don't let him have a product that is made on the same line as a product made with nuts, example would be ritz crackers, But I don't worry about restaurant food, as much as some parents do, For instance, Mcdonalds I find safe, but my son has never had chinese food, You have the best site on the web for information, I do find some of the posters a little to worried about outside influences, like never letting their child have food made outside the home, I think you have to learn to let go, let your child expeirance life, tell them the truth, and hope they will be able to watch out for themselves, After all we will not always be there. Sorry this is so long, ask an allergist, they for the most part have good answers, not just a pediatrician, but a specialist in allergies, regards, Mrs. C. Williamson

Just a side note or 2, my son is 8, he enjoys ice cream and doughnuts from Tim Hortons, Maybe Canada is diffrent, but Dairy Queen has the peanuts on the lowest possible shelf, and it is kept away from all the other foods, and gloves are worn for every new customer, Tim Horton's doesn't use nuts in anything, Mcdonalds is a well known company, they use no nut in any foods, there are supposed to be no nuts on the premises.

<p>Just a caution note. Tim Hortons do carry nut products. There is one in Toronto that is nut free. I guess you just have to ask the manager first.</p>
