Which nuts can trigger a nut allergy?

ANSWER

Nut allergy can include tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, and Brazil nuts. Peanuts that are grown underground are technically not a nut but a legume and still often trigger an allergic reaction. Some people have an allergy to both tree nuts or peanuts, so check with your doctor to be sure.
