Hi all,
I was just wondering, are poppy seeds considered safe for individuals with peanut/tree nut allergies? My mother uses poppy seeds in a fabulous [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Hungarian cake she makes for the holidays. It would be nice if my son would be able to have some. Thanks for your help!

As far as I know, they are safe for PA/TNA. However, they may pose a small risk for those allergic to sesame.
Enjoy the cake - it sounds fabulous!

My ground nut {peanut} and tree nut {walnut, pine, almond, brazil etc.} allergic son is not allergic to any seeds. To be sure we asked that skin testing be done for a variety of different seeds. You might want to consider having some testing done but if your child has not reacted yet then you are probably ok.

My PA son has also eaten poppy and sesame seeds without a problem. Somehow, it seems to be me that is more concerned about this and I'm not even clear why. I know that I don't allow sunflower seeds anymore (although I do buy them for the bird feeders, but I'm also really cautious about that when it comes to my son helping me fill the bird feeders) because of the risk of cross-contamination.
I think it is something that I just haven't figured out re cross-contamination or not, but again, my son does eat them (not very regularly because of how I feel), without reaction. I'm sure that they are fine and it's just a question I only have in my mind.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
