What about Vanilla bean? I've often wondered about whether it would bother my peanut-allergic daughter.

Vanilla is in the Orchid Family. There is a list of food families at [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy/botanical.htm"]http://www.cadvision.com/allergy/botanical.htm[/url]

From AllAllergy.Net's allergen database--the database is a wonderful resource
Nutmeg is the kernel of the fruit also producing Mace (Rf266). It is used as a flavoring in all sorts of breads, baked goods, frostings, toppings, cordials, eggnog, in prepared mustard, ethnic dishes, fruits and fruit-based drinks, in meat dishes, headcheese, liver sausage, minced ham and bologna. Oil of nutmeg is used as a flavor and is toxic in large quantities.
Clinical experience
IgE antibodies to nutmeg have been measured (16,25). In a later study of celery and pollen-allergic patients, half of the patients had IgE antibodies to nutmeg (16). See also Mace (Rf266).

Just re-raising due to time of year & use of nutmeg. So many new members!
Many "nutmeg" threads just in the Main Discussion Board -- so, if you're new & unsure -- please just enter "nutmeg" into board search & read on.

ajas_folks, I just had to check out the thread because I thought, Chrikey, not nutmeg again, but then understand that yes, it is that time of year and if you've never dealt with the question before.....
It's been great to see you posting by the way. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My Pa son has no problem with nutmeg, allspice or vanilla. As far as I know they are not in the nut or legume family at all. ( I could be wrong)
Other Baking news.. I just called Mc Cormick . the spice company.. about their Imitation almond extract. They told me no nuts AT ALL were used in the Imitation almond extract and that even in the pure Almond extract there were no nuts. I'm not sure how that is possible but that's what they said.
I'm not trusting the pure stuff even though the woman I talked to told me they don't use ANY real nut products on their lines due to cross contamination and allergies.
She sounded very aware and educated on the matter but I'm still not sure.
Any body else use extracts and wonder about this?

Yup, it's true. McCormick doesn't use any nuts in its factory. Pure Almond Extract is actually made from peach pits. Awesome for us. A bummer, I guess, if you are not allergic to nuts!
