Edinview,
Just ignored Nutster. If you looked in it's profile you will understand.

Thanks for the replies. Just trying to keep the mood positive. (I tend to get more information processed that way.)
I am following the allergist's advice and limiting exposure. It does seem weird that we can play outside, but not in our own yard. The advantage is we make more friends when we venture into the neighborhood.

Hi, just thought I would add my daughters experience.
She refuses to eat any type of bean. She tells me that they make her sick.
Anyway, she was blood tested for Carob bean gum (also known as Locust bean gum) after a reaction to some ice cream. Em is definitely allergic to it.
If you are watching for all Legumes you might want to check the ice creams you give your child (including any type of frozen treat). The only ice cream I have found to be safe in my neck of the woods is Haagen-Daz (sp?) and Jerseymaid.
Good luck.

Thanks for the warning about Locust Bean Gum. I spoke with a certified arborist about our tree. He looked up several sources and finally found out that our Honey Locust is indeed a legume. He further found out that other Locust tree beans are used as a thickening agent in foods. I'm so glad to have found out for certain since I didn't like the thought of the long term avoidance of this tree's beans based solely on a hunch.

With respect to ice cream. We have had some luck so far with Breyer's vanilla. This was recommended to us by a friend who has a PA daughter and who also works for a large food manufacturing company.

Our kids only eat Breyer's vanilla and most recently Breyer's Chocolate. They have never had any type of reaction with these. I trust Breyer's and we are sticking with them.

E-mom, thanks for your reply. It's great to hear that we can look forward to chocolate ice cream in our future!
