Yes, a pea allergy. There has probably been more than one kid and even some adults who have wished for this one! 😉 I discovered Jacob was allergic to peas when he was about 6 mos old. His reactions from eating a jar of babyfood peas- [peas, water-listed as ingredients] made it pretty obvious!
Needless to say, no pea soup, mixed veggies, most casseroles, many soups, Chinese food-[already off the menu due to ALL other allergies!]. The one tricky part of avoiding peas, has been that it is not one of the main allergens required to be boldly stated on packaging~ requiring reading of fine print! A fine example, there are some gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, egg, etc free cookies I found at Whole Foods and only discovered after I got home and was reading the packaging, they are made with pea flour! [I don’t recall the name of them- Outback snacks or something like that- imported from Australia]. Orgran Gluten Free Kids Outback Animals is the name of the Australian import cookies with pea flour in them.
Peas are in the same “family” as peanuts, soy, lentils and the many bean varieties. It was about a year after his pea and peanut diagnosis that soy was added to his allergen list. Then last month lentils were also confirmed with the RAST test. I now avoid all beans and peas, as well as the peanuts, and soy.
