Nut Allergies

Coconut and nutmeg are also known to provoke an allergic reaction similar to other nuts.
Nut allergy is provoked in the body due to the untimely release of immunological chemicals by the body in response to coming in contact with nuts.

Immunoglobulin then triggers the release of Histamine, apart from other immunological chemicals.
