A friend asked me the following, and I'm not sure what to tell her. I did suggest she look in to leaky gut syndrome. Other than that, any suggestions? (Yes, I know... I'm puzzled also about her use of the term 'regular bread products', as opposed to whole grains.) Thank you in advance!
"Nutrition question: do you know of anything in the outer coating (the rough parts) of grains like wheat that would be an irritant or allergen? Sean has never been good with whole grains, but he has no trouble with regular bread products. It finally became obvious when we shared a whole-grain muffin that was very soft and finely-ground, but still made his stomach upset. It has me baffled."
