Tree nuts are considered as one of the most frequent causes of food allergy, with almond allergy being among them. In Europe and in the United States the frequency of tree nut allergy as a whole is estimated to range between 0.2% and 0.5% both in children and in adults. The only treatment for an almond allergy is a strict and lifelong avoidance of almonds.
