Ethan LOVES peas and green beans--and most recently baked beans. Never had any problem with any legumes at all.
I actually love them as well! I have never noticed that peas have an odor either. Hmmm?

Great!.......I'm glad that p.a. people can eat legumes.
Now....what if the allergist is right about avoidance?

My PA son has been told for the past several years to avoid legumes, which we have done. He is also allergic to soy, so perhaps that is why we were told to avoid all legumes. Now he also allergic tree nuts [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

my PA son reacts to chickpeas. We have since removed all legumes from his diet (but we still allow soy lecithin, he doesn't seem to react to that)

Despite his soy allergy, the doctor said that my son can have soy lecithin and soy oil which he has had for several years now with no problem.

Sandy,
I think that if someone has had reactions to peas, green beans, etc. then obviously they should be avoided as they sound as if they are very sensitive to all/most legumes.
However, IMO, if a person hasn't had any reaction to a certain legume I would not cut it out of their diet just because.
Keep in mind that everyone's allergy is going to be different. What is safe for someone might not be safe for another.
You should do what you think is going to be safe.

e-mom, I agree with your last post. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Within the last couple of months, there has been what I consider quite a lot of discussion about soy. I know momma2boys and I did a thread search one night to try to find out about mesquite, which is a legume.
When I wrote to Anaphylaxis Canada to tell them about Jesse's reactions, thinking I *should* tell someone, they did e-mail me back, which I posted here, with how soy allergy does seem to be becoming more common and more common in PA children.
Kate B., it's the same as what you posted, some soy products are okay and some aren't and that's what I find confusing.
Another PA.com member has noticed that her PA son seems to be having difficulty with soy products now as well.
I did raise the question about whether or not people were avoiding soy "just in case" and I think the general consensus was that no, not unless they felt their child was reacting to it or sensitive to it.
I haven't noticed any difficulties with Jesse yet (touch wood) with regard to soy or any other legumes, but, as I say, when he now refuses to eat a legume like kidney beans that he used to eat in soups in the past, I don't press it with him.
And yes, erik, strangely enough, picky eater guy does like peas. Their big fav right now is broccoli. Me, I have a craving for lima beans with a ton of butter and salt.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am a Class III for peas and a Class II for peanuts.
I do not eat any other legumes. I figure I am allergic to two of them that I am not going to risk it.
