Unfortunately after trying several times I find that I don't tolerate nuts - anyone else have this problem? I break out in nasty cold sores which I treat with massive doses of the amino lysine. It seems my best foods are meats , fish vegetables and some fruit - a true hunter?? ;D  :)

It may be something that goes away with time.  I used to get those sores on my tongue or the insides of my cheeks when I ate certain nuts and other foods (but only sometimes--it was inconsistent), but the longer I was on the diet the less they bothered me, and now they don't affect me at all.

Speedy, it could be the mold on the nuts that's giving you trouble. Have you tried soaking them overnight? Put a drop or two of hydrogen peroxide in the soak water, then rinse the nuts in the morning and put them on a cookie sheet on paper towels, spread out in a single layer. You can either put them in the oven on 'warm', or let them sit out to dry. I do this with walnuts and it's made a big difference. Hope this is helpful to you :)

nuts are high in arginine....Lysine is the amino acid used to help cold sores....Cold sores
are a form of herpes...You need a balance of amino acids i.e arginine to lysine.  If you're
too high in arginine and too low in lysine, you might be subject to a herpes outbreak like
cold sores.

If you're going to eat nuts, you need to eat foods high in lysine for balance.

It well be mould as I was getting a raging attack of allergic rhinitus as well. The walnuts did taste a bit bitter. I was grinding them and adding prunes and goji berries all ground up - then making little trail mixes = I'm sorry to say that the last batch went in the dustbin.
