Just curious, is Coconut or desiccated coconut regarded as an allergen in South Africa?

 

I cant seem to find proper legislative documents or any other documents relating to SA regarding this aspect

 

Please advise

“Coconuts are members of the palm family and are only distantly related to tree nuts. Although the FDA classifies coconut as a tree nut for food labelling purposes, coconut does not appear on such lists in the EU and South Africa.”

Not “official” but hopefully you can use this as a starting point.
