All peanut butter is not created equal. This creamy nut treat is a staple in about 94% of households in the U.S., according to the National Peanut Board. And it’s estimated that the average American child eats 1,500 PB&J sandwiches before graduating from high school.
Peanut butter is one of the most common food allergies and can be life-threatening. But according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, a recent study showed that while numbers of reported allergies are increasing, 20% of people with a peanut allergy eventually outgrow it.
Are you noticing a rash or swelling in your lips, mouth or tongue after eating peanut butter? If so, talk to your provider about a possible food allergy.
But do you really know what’s in your peanut butter?
