The preservative thing makes sense to me too. When I first started it seemed I had troble with everything. I had gut reactions to sweet potatoes and leafy greens. The nutritionist I saw told me my gut was so torn up I was reacting to pesticide and artificial fertilizer residues, and that I should go completely organic for a while. I did, and it worked.
You may be able to handle preservatives after you have healed. But it might take a while. Give it time. For me it took almost a year. But that should be no big deal. You should be eating whole foods right now instead of processed stuff anyway. Meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Eventually you will be able to add back other foods.
Have your husband read here, or show him other websites that explain celiac disease. He needs to know that even a tiny amount of gluten will do damage so that he will be extra careful around the kitchen. If he uses your butter or condiments for example, he will contaminate them and you WILL get sick. There is a lot to learn, but it becomes second nature after a while.
gluten-free since June, 2011
Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.
Nightshades now seem to bother me too.
BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
