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 further decrease her chances of developing a food 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!
What We Do
Love That Peanut! is the first and only blend of 100% organic, non GMO peanut flour and immune regulating probiotics, made right here in the USA. We make early peanut introduction to fight food allergies safe, easy, and more effective.
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), early introduction of peanut protein starting at 4 months of age in some infants and at 6 months in most babies, may reduce the chances of developing a peanut allergy by up to 80%. Studies suggest that probiotics like B. Lactis may help regulate a baby's immune system and decrease the chances of developing all food allergies.
A Word From Our Founder
DR. CASCYA CHARLOT
I have been practicing as a pediatric allergist in Brooklyn, NY for over a decade treating children of all ages with allergies. I am the mother of 2 children, ages 6 and 4 and the aunt of a 6 year old girl with a food allergy. It was not until my niece was diagnosed with a food allergy that the full impact of this diagnosis hit home. I experienced first-hand what living with a food allergy meant not only for the child but also for the parents and families.
My daughter was born in the same year that the LEAP findings were shared with the allergy and immunology community. Even though I am an expert in the field of pediatric allergies, I struggled with the question of how to best introduce peanuts into her diet. This was the inspiration for the creation of Love That Peanut! For me, this product is about making the world a peanut allergy-free place, one little peanut at a time!
A word from the mother of a child with food allergies
When my 11 month old daughter developed an allergic reaction after eating a snack, I was
shocked --a skin test later confirmed that she indeed had a food allergy.
How to keep her safe when eating out in restaurants? At school? During play dates? If there was anything that I could have done to decrease her chance of developing a food allergy, I would. I wish that a product like Love That Peanut! was available when she was a baby.

We must take this opportunity to spread the word about a simple yet dramatically effective way to decrease babies’ likelihood of developing peanut allergies.
Prevalence of peanut allergies is increasing evermore across the globe
Peanut allergies are the most common cause of death from food allergy reactions
Peanut allergies are lifelong in 80% of cases and although the FDA has approved treatment for peanut allergies, there is currently no cure once an allergy is established
Peanut allergies are costly: the overall cost of food allergies was estimated to be about 25 billion dollars per year
Children with food allergies are more likely to be bullied at school
In a recent study, only 31% of parents surveyed stated that they were willing to introduce peanut flour before or around 6 months of age and only 40% reported willingness to introduce after 11 months of age. These parents were simply not aware of the impact of early peanut introduction.
Peanut allergies causes anxiety for both children and their family
There are currently no other products which combine peanut flour and probiotics to make early introduction more effective
Let’s make a difference together!
