I basically eliminated the foods I am sensitive to by accident.Â Because I am not sensitive to yogurt and other dairy, except for mozzarella cheese.Â But I am sensitive to grapes, a prime ingredient in fruit juices and smoothies.Â Grape juice concentrate anyone?Â And I’m not sensitive to wheat or gluten, but I am sensitive to malt, which is an ingredient in most baked goods and grain products, along with processed meats. Also, shell–I can’t even.
Here’s the list of not-to-eats: crab, chia seed (what is this related to, because it’s not a food I eat?), clam, almond (great, I’ve been using this as an occasional milk substitute in addition to near daily mixed nuts), shrimp, grapes, mozzarella cheese, malt, cola (aka kola nut, so it wasn’t the corn syrup), and black pepper (what the actual fuck?Â who can’t eat THAT?!?Â Me, along with white and green peppercorns, but pink is okay).
I thought having results would simplify things, but I’m not sure that’s the case.Â I’ll still have to read the ingredient list of everything I eat, only now I’ll be scanning for m-a-l-t, along with the infamous “other natural flavors,” “modified food starch,” and “vegetable gum.”
