My mom wil soon be travelling to Japan, but she has recently come to be allergic for soy (except fermented), stone fruit and hazelnuts. Could you help her out by writing a little text she could show when going to a restaurant?

Many thanks

The text could be:
大豆、核果類とヘーゼルナッツのアレルギーがあります。

核果 is not commonly used in Japanese, and the OP said "soy (except fermented)", so I would write;
発酵食品以外の大豆、桃やさくらんぼ、スモモ、マンゴー等、真ん中に硬い種が入っている核果と呼ばれるフルーツ類、及びヘーゼルナッツのアレルギーがあります。
Well, it's a bit long, though...

You are right, that is much clearer. I suppose the length shouldn't be a problem if she's just going to print it out and show people.

The length doesn't really matter indeed.
Many thanks to both of you!
