Thanks Aunt Jane, for your kindness and thoughtfulness . . . and you have already given me some ideas to try!
I have visited both of the Celiac websites you mention multiple times . . . and quite honestly I would be tickled pink if Celiac was the primary concern in my diet. Most of my food sensitivities relate to a very severe Latex Allergy and foods with proteins that are similar to Latex that cause cross reactivity . . . which includes most plant based foods that have the elastic quality of natural rubber latex . . . and most foods that grow on trees! Sulfa is used in the processing of natural rubber latex, and I have long had allergic reactions to sulfa . . . so I think the sensitivities may be related. Even more daunting is my sensitivity to Sodium Sulfite, Potassium Nitrate, and Polysorbate 80 . . . which occur naturally in many foods and are used as preservatives in EVERYTHING . . . without need for listing on food labels unless exceeds “allowable” amount. It would seem that Egg Replace could work for me . . . but if the Potato starch has Sodium Sulfite to keep it “white” then I cannot use it (and dehydrated/frozen potato products are amongst the absolute worst for that!). So . . . I have to add only ONE ingredient at a time to see if I react . . . and then it is hard to know if it is the food or an exposure to Latex which is EVERYWHERE . . . or perfumes, or any number of other air born pollutants that I react to.
It is much simpler to eat what I know has worked in the past . . . but can get tiresome!
What I do now seems to be working . . . and is sometimes best to leave well enough alone!
