Nut allergies are on the rise. It is estimated that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies and growing! Eight major food allergens – milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish and crustacean shellfish – are responsible for most of the serious food allergy reactions in the United States.
