Coconut - silly question


Recommended Posts

This seems like a really silly question because it would seem that the answer's in the name, but someone asked me today and now I'm not sure, so please help

Is a coconut a nut when thinking about allergies?

Thanks! :huh:

  1. Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though theFood and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. Whileallergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut.
