As far as I know, chestnuts are tree nuts..so you probably need to avoid those

Chestnuts (Beechnut family), Macadamia nut (Protea Family), filberts and hazelnuts from the Birch family and brazil nuts are all considered tree nuts.


Are you meaning water chestnuts?

Water chestnuts are not a nut, they are a vegetable, part of the sedge family.


And of course, maybe a quick call to your allergist could clarify as well :)
