Our allergist told us that cottonseed oil is fine. My son has not reacted to cottonseed oil.
It's amazing how much more food you have to avoid from the sesame, poppy sunflower allergy. Breads, chips and pretzils.
I think it's Utz or another brand of chips from Frito Lay that makes one "baked" kind of chip that doesn't list sunflower oil on the ingrediants but all there other chips now have a huge sunflower on the bag and have sunflower oil in them. I worry about cross contamination. I will give them a call one day or send an email. Actually, I tried calling them and got an advertising recorded message and then the line hangs up when it's done. Maybe because I called from my cell phone. Right now we stay away.
I'm making bread from scratch, bought a bread machine, ice cream machine although every now and then I buy breyers and hagan daz, van. and choc. flavors. Going to be making my own donuts tonight. I don't want to start making my own potato chips. Where does it end. I love to cook, bake but I don't have time for all this.
Isn't it a shame that we are allergic to natural things. I guess I should start eating plastic. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Also watch out for breadcrumbs, we use Corn Flake Crumbs.

Mustard is a seed too, FYI. Both of my boys react to mustard...it's in a lot of things so we have to be careful about it.

Thank you all so, so much for all of the information.
I spoke with our allergist's office yesterday and they really explained everything to me.
We only need to stay away from poppy, sunflower, and sesame seeds for the time being...whew! She *thinks* that Vincent is *safe* with sunflower oil, but I just don't want to risk it so we'll stay away from that for a while.
As for the the tree nuts, he didn't react to pecan or walnut, but she wants us to avoid all tree nuts.
We had bloodwork done today to determine if he may outgrow the PA, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get good news!
Thanks again [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
