Lupine Warning Issued to Peanut-Allergic Consumers

Description: Peanut-allergic individuals are at increased risk for lupin allergy, because lupin is a in the same plant family as peanut. Lupin is becoming more common in our food supply (usually ground into a flour). Recently, two pancake mixes were recalled, because of a reported allergic reaction in a peanut-allergic child. Peanut-allergic clients should be encouraged to speak with their allergist about their tolerance of lupin.

Organization: Canadian Food Inspection Agency
