No. Completely unique to FAI, the molecular testing done at our organization allows us to understand the relationship between your child’s immune system and the proteins in the different classes of nuts. What does this do for you? It means, for example, if your child is allergic to walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts, they only have to eat one of them to maintain safety for all three. We call this food an “umbrella food” – a food which houses the most complete set of food proteins to which your child is allergic. Eating the proper amount of the umbrella food will protect your child from a larger group of related allergens.
