I have been allergic to Sunflower since I was very young, but I developed anaphylaxis when I became a bit older. What I came to find out was that I started noticing I would get sick to a lot more food items than I normally would. I was more acute of the sunflower oil in chips and couldn't eat them, along with that I noticed I was getting sick to another ingredient...after a while of tracking what would make me sick I found that Safflower is nutritionally similar to the sunflower and that has also caused me to have mild reactions. so be careful and read your food labels!
So sorry about your allergies. I found out recently that I am also allergic to sunflower. I had no idea. I always dumped a spoonful of those on my salads and now I completely avoid those. Who would have thought. Its so hard dealing with food sensativities. Its like a landmine. Take care! Im with ya!
