  1. Hi,   Yesterday I tried a new to me brand of gluten free pasta here in the UK - Heinz. I read that it had Lupin flour in it which is a really uncommon ingredient over here so I'd not come across it before. I do know however that it is pretty suspect for those people who have allergies and it's starting to cause a lot of problems in Europe where it's more commonly used. I had some yesterday for lunch and seemed ok, but I have a bit of a sixth sense about things that are going to make me ill and so was on the look out for any sort of reaction. This morning I had a stinking headache and now after a bit more to eat of the pasta I am feeling very like I do after a run in with gluten. There's not much to read about reactions to Lupin other than it being more common in patients suffering from peanut and other legume allergies - also people who have difficulties with soy. I have no difficulties with lentils/soy/peanuts, particularly nothing on the anaphylactic shock scale of things. I've not heard or read of lupin causing the types of reaction I'm feeling today - bloating, headache, very emotional, achy - general gluten feeling actually.   For now I'm binning the rest of the bag of pasta and having a clean few days with no processed food. Anyone else got any experience of this?   Thanks Starla x
