    Green Pea allergy

    My friend has a severe allergy to green peas. We found a yogurt that is made from split yellow peas (by the name of Ripple). I emailed the company to ask if the two peas were closely enough related that my friend might have a reaction but only got a response that they 'use split yellow peas). Not much help to me. So now I turn to you, will my friend have an allergic reaction to a yogurt made from split yellow peas like he does to green (garden variety) peas?

It's all a bit strange because I do not have any typical allergy symptoms (itchy eyes, nasal congestion....

    Allergy Test Web Page Incorrect

    I would think WebMD would be better at keeping accurate up to date information on their site. The allergy test information page does not clarify accurately the volume of inaccurate allergy blood testing. It also indicates blood tests are used more because they are safer. Scratch tests are still more reliable. It would also be nice to see a reference to mast cell activation and histamine intolerance as people looking for information about allergy testing would greatly benefit from it being mentioned....
