PeanutsGermination decreases allergenicity of peanuts
A recent study published online ahead of print in the Journal of Food Science examined the effects of germination under certain major environmental conditions on the allergenicity of peanut proteins and found that there is potential for controlling biological methods to reduce peanut allergenicity.

Allergenic proteins in peanuts are degraded during seed germination, and the authors surmised that by altering that natural process by controlling certai…
