There doesn't seem to be a lot of quality information, if you have a decent list can you please share?

Possible sources of sesame seeds
IF YOU HAVE A BRAND NAME THAT HAS SEEDS CAN YOU POST? OR IF YOU KNOW A SAFE BRAND?

Baked goods, e.g., breads, cookies, pastries, bagels, buns
Bread crumbs, bread sticks, cereals, crackers, melba toast, muesli
Dips, pâtés, spreads, e.g., hummus, chutney
Herbs, seasoning, spice
Margarine
Processed meats, sausages
Snack foods, e.g., bagel/pita chips, candy, granola bars, halvah, pretzels, rice cakes, sesame snap bars
Tahini
Tempeh
Vegetarian burgers



I also read this:
Adhesive bandages
Cosmetics, hair care products, perfumes, soaps, sun screens
Drugs
Fungicides, insecticides
Lubricants, ointments, topical oils


Alias for sesame:

Hi Yve,

I've kind of given up on lists at this point although knowing some of the terms sesame can hide under (ex - "natural flavor") is very important.

I try to keep up on which companies will label for sesame added to their products intentionally (ex - General Mills, Kraft, etc) and then call to check on cross-contamination labeling & cleaning practices.

I'm just fed up calling everyone. Everytime.

I'm new to the seasame seed thing...I find it impossible. Natural flavors?
Is it best to avoid any processed foods? It's is possible?
Thanks Anyhow.

I will tell you a few things I have found. I have called on these items within the past 12-18 months, but none of them more recently than that.

Lender's frozen plain bagels - only frozen
Nathan's hotdogs
Earth Balance margarine
Frito Lay chips (Lays, Tostitos, Rold Gold pretzels, etc.)
You are going to have to make your own hummus for sure
Cherrybrook Kitchen boxed cookies and mixes

That's a start anyway. Will add more if I think of anything. We use very little in the way of processed foods.

Cosmetics, etc. can def. contain it. La Mer moisturizer does (I gave it up after a decade of beautiful skin Smiley ). I think Burt's Bees or another lip balm plus Bonne Belle Lipsmackers (good to know since you have a girl).

Thanks, this helps. Cherrybrook is a GREAT. I haven't called them yet. She has so many other allergens. Seasame may not be the most restrictive but it is the best hidden. It's plain sneaky.

You mentioned EB marg. doesn't that have sunflower in it? Can you do sunflower? We're avoiding all seeds.

I'm sure you've saved enough for seasame free facial every month with the money you saved on La Mer!

Many bath and beauty products--including almost all of the Burt's Bees line--and especially lip balms contain sesame oil.

FWIW, Trader Joe's at least used to label for shared lines with sesame; although they've stopped labeling consistently for lines / facilities, I'm pretty sure they're keeping the no-hidden-ingredients thing (i.e. never just listing "spices" or "natural flavors" without listing them out).

Morningstar Farms' organic veggie sausage patties contain sesame. Their regular ones do not. I've never checked after processing info, but I eat those regularly with no problem.

The Earth Balance in my refridgerator does NOT contain sunflower. Luckily, that is not one we have to avoid. They also have a soy-free variety, which I just noticed you also need. You have quite a list to deal with too.

In the USA primarily things that say 'spice' or 'natural flavor'.

Crackers, bread, corn chips, salsa, tomato sauce, soup, salad dressing, Asian food, asian sauces, middle eastern food, hummus, massage oils, hand lotion, some types of nori (seaweed used to make sushi), and more all can have sesame in them. Anything with vague ingredients could contain sesame.

Thanks. I'm compliling a list. I was back at our allergy dept this morning. To be honest they don't have much more info that presented here. I am surprised, they are a teaching and research facility in Chicago.

HK, the earth balance we have (soy free) has sunflower lecithin. If anyone finds one without sunflower/ soy/ seasame/ dairy I will be forever in their debt!

I was talking to someone else dealing with peanut and sesame allergy. She said she found some safe hummus. I'll try to get the brand name and find out if it's available in US or not.

I'm not sure if she is as hyper-vigilant as I am about avoiding even trace amounts -- but she said she checked this one brand and it was safe.
