Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" oh! i did not know that. it NEVER bothered my daughter. i guess because her allergy wasnt that severe. it was her allergist that had recommended trying nutella."
I just relooked and they stopped adding peanut oil to it in 2006.lol
Q. If your child is allergic to peanuts will they also be allergic to hazelnuts?
A. Not all nut allergies are the same. Peanuts are grown underground and are classed as legumes, while hazelnuts are tree nuts as they grow on trees or bushes. People with peanut allergy may also be allergic to other nuts such as hazelnuts however this is not always the case. Prevalence of hazelnut allergy in Australian children is estimated to be 0.18% , compared to 3% for peanut allergies . In addition to this information, in 2006 Ferrero changed the ingredients of Nutella so that peanut oil is no longer used.
