We are SO thrilled to be able to do a sesame challenge in our allergist office. We have an appointment next week so I did a little searching and found a top 8 allergen free organic tahini from Pepperwood. 🙌
What are the top 8 allergens?
- Tree Nuts
Why is this huge?
Most companies produce nut butters in one factory, cashew, almond, peanut, tahini, all on the same equipment. This is why it’s labelled “may contain” as they can’t guarantee that doesn’t contain the nut. It’s very hard finding a company that just produces one nut or has a separate facility.
Next week, we are going to try it out. It can go 1 of 3 ways.
- He passes with flying colours and we can introduce it back into his diet at home.
- He barely get out of the gate but can start the immunotherapy in the office every 2 weeks and then we continue it at home.
- He has a higher threshold and can start immunotherapy at home instead of going to the office every 2 weeks to start.
Are there any foods that you have a hard time finding that aren’t cross-contaminated? I’m working on creating a page where you can find nuts and nut butters that aren’t cross contaminated.
Let me know if you try this tahini and what you think!
