Two places come to mind for me. Keep in mind I'm a newbie and just a tad naive. I was shocked, yes shocked to find that my Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc supplement had wheat in it. Yeah I know. My Dr was surprised! Duh.

The second was in a bag of cashews my cousin was munching on and offered. A quick glance at ingredients said "cashews and salt.". Two hours later I was scratching with new DH flares. I hadn't had anything else since my breakfast of egg on a slice of Udis and yogurt. I dug the bag out of the trash and down at the bottom in small print was the disclaimer about shared equipment with peanuts and wheat! 

Read on the DH threads. Many find that iodine triggers thier DH. I don't know which foods naturally have iodine but some salts have iodine added.

I I eat many kinds of nuts but cashews just make me sick, upset stomach, headache, itchy skin.. I just assumed I have an allergy to cashews.. The ones I ate were organic & no shared equipment.. So maybe it is just cashews in general....I also have to limit my pistachio's for the same reason...

Chopped nut sundae topping. Why do chopped peanuts need wheat starch, seriously? :blink: They're not THAT oily. Fortunately I read the label before I put them on my sundae.

Wow thx for the info.

I have spent a lot of time today on the DH thread. Very good advice and things I didnt know. The iodine thing is intriguing to me because as I was filling a salt shaker last week I noticed I accidentally got "non-iodized" so we've been using that for maybe 3 weeks. Just in the last 24-36 hours I have had a striking improvement (knock on wood) in my itching. Maybe just being hyper vigilant gluten-free for a few weeks is working. I have my fingers crossed.

I can live without cashews too. :-). I have been looking at salicylate info and don't think I have issues there. I am a red wine drinker and have never been able to blame any symptoms on it. I'm going to cheek amines next.

I know of someone else who found that there was wheat in her sweet tea..

That's funny. Cashews are the easiest for me to handle because they are low in tyramine. Isn't it interesting how different we all are?

Cashews and pistachios make my mother itch. I don't like cashews but they don't make me react, and neither do pistachios. And my mother (we're 95% sure) doesn't have any kind of gluten intolerance, I get it all from my daddy (thanks Daddy!) It is funny how different we all are.

WHAT??? REALLY?? I am just starting to go gluten free and I assumed most candy would be fine. Damn... Now I will have to go look up my favorites!

I read somewhere that blue cheese has gluten.... but then saw reports online that it was safe. Anyone have issues with blue cheese?

Blue cheese has pretty much universally been declared safe. I've never had a problem with it. Even the very few blue cheeses that still have a bread starter for the culture do not have a measurable amount of gluten.
