HPP can mean liquified peanut protein. Peanuts are a legume, a member of the plant family, and can be a source for this ingredient. It is important to know the source of the HPP before consuming it. If the source of the HPP is not indicated on the label, contact the manufacturer before using the product. It can also be a multitude of other plants such as cottonseed, soybean, etc. Arachis oil, on the other hand, IS PEANUT OIL!

hi chris.
I my self am a peanut allergy sufferer so this is my contribution to your list of ingredients to avoid on food labels;
the additives E471 and E472
goober peas, and pinder.
i'm not sure what all these mean but all of them could contain traces of nuts and peanuts.I recieved this list from my doctor. I have also had a skin test to test the seriousness of my allergy. For more info on this why not ask you doctor or local hospital.
hope my list is of help to you all.

I hate to say it, but since you appear to be reacting to the same set of things that I do, you're going to have to find some new favourite foods. Trust me, there are lots of good things to eat out there that don't contain your list.

At my son's last visit to his dermatolgist, I was discussing his visit to the allergist and the peanut/pea allergy. She mentioned a recent reclassification of string beans out of the Legume Family - but every legume list I have seen still has them and my son got red blotches around the mouth from eating them.

Might I suggest, in order, consultation with a registered dietician, basic cooking classes at the local college (or equivalent) and investment in at least one pot to cook in.

A friend of mine with a peanut allergic daughter came across this ingrediant on a package of raisins: durkex oil. She wasn't able to get a phone number for the company that produces it. Does anyone know what this is?

Hi, it's your friendly, neighbourhood librarian checking in! I have not yet been able to determine what is in this oil or what company makes it but I thought I would let you know that it is a liquid media used in the dehydration process that turns grapes into raisins. Durkex 500 and Durkex 550 are the two terms that turn up in the literature most often. I'll keep working on this question and will get back to you. I'm at a large, urban, public library and we have lots of resources yet to search.
Take care.
