Well, this is new and unexpected, but we learned yesterday that Moses is highly allergic to mustard. This hasn’t been on our radar at all, but explains the anaphylactic reaction to canned baked beans that contained mustard in August.
Before his allergist appointment, I reviewed the list of ingredients on the canned beans and thought that we should get mustard tested, just in case. And sure enough — he’s highly allergic to it. Very good to know.
So, this brings us up to 6 allergies (as diagnosed by his allergist): tree nuts, wheat, eggs, dairy, fish and mustard. This is still a lot fewer than the 40+ allergies / sensitivities that he had when he was 2-3 years old.
On the good side of things, mustard is very easy to avoid.
I just found out that mustard is actually one of the ten priority food allergens in Canada. Who knew?
