Authenticating the geographic origin of hazelnuts
(American Chemical Society) Hazelnuts, like olive oil, cheese and other agricultural products, differ in flavor depending on their geographic origin.

What Are Common Cross-reactivities with Other Allergens?
Discussion The most common allergic foods are cow’s milk (most common), egg, peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish.
