Facts About Peanuts & Probiotics
Peanut allergies are one of the most common food allergies and the
number one cause of fatal food induced anaphylaxis in children. The incidence of peanut allergies has tripled in the last decade. Peanut allergies are often life long as 80% of children do not outgrow
Experts now know that early introduction of peanut flour as early as 4 months of age may decrease a baby’s chances of developing a peanut allergy by 80%! This was based on the 2015 LEAP study which showed that early introduction of peanut flour made a big difference.
70% of a baby’s immune system is in the gut. A baby’s gut contains
varying levels of "good bacteria" like Bifidobacterium Lactis. "Good" bacteria interacts with a baby’s developing immune system, making it more effective at fighting infections while decreasing the chances of an overactive immune system, which is more likely to cause allergies.
Infants with food allergies have lower amounts of Bifidobacterium Lactis ("good bacteria") when compared to babies without food allergies. Studies suggest that adding probiotics like B. Lactis to the baby's diet may decrease the chances of developing food allergies.
Introducing Peanut Allergens Early
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), early introduction of peanut flour starting at 4 months of age may reduce a baby’s chances of developing a peanut allergy by up to 80%
Studies suggest that probiotics also known as "good bacteria" given in the first months of life may decrease babies' likelihood of developing allergies, including food allergies.

About Love That Peanut!
Created by a Harvard Trained Pediatric Allergist
Love That Peanut was created by a Harvard trained board certified pediatric allergist.
“My daughter was born in the same year that the LEAP findings were shared with the allergy and immunology community. I struggled with the question of how to best introduce peanuts into the diet of an infant. I also wondered what else I could do to decrease her chances of developing a peanut allergy. This was the inspiration behind Love That Peanut! For me, this product is about making the world a peanut allergy-free place, one little peanut at a time!
