Researchers work to create allergy-free peanuts
Tests ongoing at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
Scientists in North Carolina are working to make peanuts safe for everyone, WNCN-TV reported.
Scientists at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro believe they have found a way to make allergy-free peanuts.
The peanuts are treated through a certain process to try to reduce the major peanut proteins, a scientist said.
Teams started by testing skin, and research showed the skin size was significantly reduced in people allergic to peanuts.
Officials cautioned that the testing is in its infancy and any chance at FDA approval is months or years away.
