Exclamation sunflower & Safflower

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!

Re: sunflower & Safflower

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!
