Peanuts are the most common allergy causing foods and they often are found in food items that we may overlook.
Though technically peanut is not actually a nut but a legume, still people allergic to peanuts can exhibit similar allergic reactions to other tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, and cashews. The proteins found in the peanuts are similar in structure to those found in other tree nuts.
Since peanuts are a part of legume family, so if someone is allergic to peanuts, possibility is, he might be allergic to peas, lima beans, soybeans, and lentils too.Hidden Sources:
