Sesame Allergy Resources

There are seven allergens associated with sesame allergy.

2 are 2S seed storage proteins, 1 is a 7S seed storage protein and 2 are 11S seed storage proteins. These proteins are generally linked to tree nut, peanut and seed allergies. The last two allergens are oleosin proteins, which are found in parts of plants with a high oil content.

I have put together some more comprehensive resources at

The allergy resources page for sesame covers the key allergens, which allergic syndromes are linked to this allergy and other foods which are commonly cross reactive with sesame.

There is also regularly updated links to useful websites specifically for sesame allergies and the latest research papers on the topic.

If you have multiple allergies and are interested in how they are linked or want to find out more about food allergies outside the usual top 14 then you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter, where I share a food allergy card every day of the week.
