Interesting side story. With my daughter, we have been extremely careful of all nuts since her diagnosis. We've only had a few reactions over the years, generally due to accidental cross contamination.
2 Thanksgivings ago, we were sitting on the couch watching TV and pulled out a brand new bag of baked chips with a big label stating "peanut and tree nut free". Well my daughter ate the first chip and immediately starting screaming and within a few seconds went in to full blown anaphylaxis. So, we hit her with her epipen and took her to the hospital as we always do after a severe reaction.
Sure enough, the chips had lentil flower in them. Foolish us for not seeing that in the ingredients but didn't realize at the time how severe of a reaction she could have to all legumes.
