Allergic complaints possible
People who are allergic to peanuts could potentially be harmed by this product. According to the European Center for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF), a peanut allergy can cause mild but also severe allergic reactions in various organs.
According to the experts, the symptoms range from the so-called oral allergy syndrome, in which the mucous membrane in the mouth and throat tingles or swells a few minutes to hours after intake, to dangerous anaphylactic shock with shortness of breath and cardiac arrest.
Symptoms such as stomach pain, vomiting, or diarrhea can occur. In some cases the airways can be involved and an allergic runny nose or asthmatic symptoms develop.
Another possible scene of allergic reactions is the skin: in addition to itching, redness or hives, a peanut allergy can also intensify or even trigger flare-ups at neurodermatitis.
Adolescents and young adults with asthma in particular belong to the risk group that can develop severe anaphylactic reactions. (ad)
