Hazelnut coffee?

Has anyone ever reacted to the taste or smell or have a child react to the brewing of hazelnut coffee? FAAN said it could happen, although unlikely. But all it takes is someone telling me it "could" to make me stand up and take notice. I started buying and brewing hazelnut made with "artificial" flavoring rather than "real" was told if it was artifically flavored it was safe. The other one tasted better, but rather be safe than sorry.

Now here is my next question, if the coffee is artificially flavored hazelnut, my DD should be able to take a sip safely - right? Just curious if anyone has had any experience with this.

Thanks.

Be very careful with products that claim they are just "artificial" flavoring. Read each label and do not assume that if it is "artificial" that it is safe to eat or drink. I always tend to go on the safer side especially if you have not tried the product before and if you are not sure it is safe.

Also, hazelnut is a tree nut so the reaction might be there if it is airborne somehow and the person has a high allergic sensitivity to tree nuts.

Kym, I stay away from all peanut and nut tree products including nut flavored coffees such as hazelnut. It's not worth the risk. Even the artificially flavored ones.

I agree with Chicken, I think it's so important to read labels regardless of whether a nut flavored product states that it's artificial flavoring. If anything is a peanut or nut of any kind in flavoring I avoid it regardless of "artificial" flavoring. It makes me too nervous.

I've had hazelnut flavoured coffee since being diagnosed, and was fine. But, I've since switched to other flavours and don't drink it. Sure, the risk may be small but the consequences of it going wrong are more than I want to risk.

That said, I drink a lot of almond milk.

I agree with Penwiggle. The risk is not worth it at all. Especially if you do not know the manufacturer. My go to is vanilla flavored coffee!

Pen, I am with you. I drink lots of almond milk, it's my go to. And when I drink coffee or tea, adding almond milk gives me enough flavor. I agree that the risk it just not worth it. I don't even enjoy it if I think there's any potential risk so I steer clear of it.
