THe 2nd possibility is this bread mix I get from Ireland. It is gluten free according to European standards, but it contains wheat, saying the gluten was removed.

I stopped drinking about two years ago after being an on-again, off-again moderate drinker for about 10 years (I live in a town that makes beer, it's the drink of choice around here). Anyway, I had figured out I was hypoglycemic but couldn't understand what the deal was with alcohol. At this point I can have wine/etc in cooked foods but I can't drink any, if I have 2oz of wine I will have a major blood sugar spike and drop and the next day feel terribly hung over.
I was never an alcoholic but I feel like a recovering one now, when I have to turn down alcohol at a party, etc people look at me with pity, or even with respect - "I really ought to quit, too..." some will say. Then I try to explain it wasn't alcoholism that stopped me, but just feeling really terrible, my health, etc, but then I feel like I'm protesting too much. Anyway, it's weird sometimes but feeling better is worth it.
About the bread mix, I've heard Euro standards are different and I'd question it anyway, if there's wheat of any kind in it I'd be wary, but then again I'm not brave enough to try oatmeal, either.

I also don't drink any type of grain alcohol, never liked beer, and only have wine about once a year when I visit my sister. I don't buy it at home...
