Farm Progress America, Feb 14, 2019

Max Armstrong shares insight on rising food allergies and one ‘culprit.’

Max Armstrong was a little disappointed during a recent flight where he couldn’t have peanuts; but he realizes it’s because of the rising concern of food allergies. The peanut allergy is an important issue for children; and for the peanut industry this has become the allergy “poster child.” The peanut producers see this as a long-term trend for the industry.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
