Sharing! Updates: Hypoallergenic Peanuts, Doodle Bugs, & Robots4Autism
Hypoallergenic peanut products could someday be available to the millions of Americans allergic to regular peanuts. Researchers from North Carolina’s Agricultural and Technical State University have developed a patented process that reduces peanut allergens by up to 98 percent. The new process reduces them by soaking de-shelled and roasted peanuts in a solution of food grade enzymes. The treated peanuts are made to look and taste like regular roasted peanuts, and they are not genetically modiﬁed.
