Hi
Can anyone tell me if these are allergens? My son is being tested later this week and wanted to give him a yogurt that has these in?

My understanding is that if you're told to avoid all legumes, they would be in the list. We avoided them in the past for my oldest, who had to avoid all legumes.

But other than that... well, I was going to say "it would be fine", but really, it would all depend on what allergens you're avoiding.

I think locust bean and guar gum are the same thing. I react slightly to them . . . probably because they are legumes.
