While many of us enjoy eating peanuts and other tree nuts such as walnuts, pecans and pistachios, there are other who have an allergy towards eating these. While some may have a mild reaction, others may have a severe reaction leading to Anaphylaxis, a condition that restricts breathing and may even send the body into a state of shock.
The reactions that may be triggered as a result of eating peanuts or other tree nuts include itching or rashes on the mouth, face, eyes or other parts of the body, diarrhea and stomach pain/cramps, runny nose, nausea and vomiting.
Mirchi.com requires its sellers to provide an allergy warning on products that contain peanuts or other tree nuts, but also appreciates that some products may not contain nuts, but may be processed in a facility that also processed nuts.
If in doubt, we strongly urge you to contact the seller/fulfiller to confirm the presence of any nuts in their products; you can send a message by clicking on the envelope icon in the upper right hand corner of the product detail page, next to the name of the seller/fulfiller.
Products that contain peanuts or other tree nuts are indicated with this icon in the Allergy Information section of the product detail page:
