I baked some wheat-free pumpkin muffins for my four year old son on the weekend, and added some No Name pre-packaged Sultana Raisins. I used Stokely's canned pumpkin, and Club House brand pumpkin pie spice, which I believe is made by McCormicks and therefore gluten free?
The rest of the ingredients are ones that I use in his banana muffins, which he never reacts to. I've noticed he'll eat about half the pumpkin muffin before handing it off to someone else to finish. He never does this with the banana muffins I make him. However, whenever he starts eating something that could have undeclared wheat in them, such as potatoe chips that may be contaminated from having been run on the same lines as wheat-containing ones, he takes a chip or two before announcing that he can't eat them. Wheat foods irritate his tongue almost immediately.
Tonight his ears are scarlet red, like after he eats wheat, and he is a bit whiny, which is also another of his numerous symptoms.
We live in Canada, in case any of the products may be known to be different here than in the States.
I am trying to figure out what may have caused his possible reaction today, and suspect the pumpkin muffins. Any thoughts to confirm or disprove this theory?
