If you have problems with raisins then you should be careful of wine, grape jelly, or jam, and things sweetened with grape juice.  Some gluten-free products use grape juice as a sweetner.  And yep, it is an old thread, and the OP never replied.


but welcome to the forum! :)  feel free to ask questions.  We might be able to help.

Yes it is an old thread but to let you know I have trouble with dried fruit especially dates.

You know, those big squishy, yummy ones - medjool, I think. 

Well, they seriously gluten me (that's just one  :( ) and I have been told that they can be rolled lightly in flour at some stage in their processing!

That would account for it :ph34r: !

I spoke with a farmer who pollinates dates with pollen cut with flour and then places a bag over the flowers to protect the fruit.  The whole thing would be somewhat contaminated with flour at that point.

An allergist told me not to eat sultanas because of the natural fungus that grows on them. I think it's pretty normal to react to dried fruits as a whole when you have slight allergies to fungus/mould as everyone with a damaged gut does. Dried Apricots RUIN me, the sulphates are also a problem but I think the moulds are the main thing.
