Millet Made My Son Sick?

Recommended Posts

I order some Millet & flax bread from Sami's bakery. I gave it to my six year old son and two hours later he felt so sick and then threw up. I thought Millet was easy to digest??has any one else had this problem. This happened to him one other time when he ate a spelt scone by mistake. The bread was so yummy i feel so bad.

thanks

Would you mind posting the whole ingredients list here? Either there was something other than the millet or flax in it that he is intolerant to (like soy, for instance), or he may be intolerant to grains in general.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

I read recently some people don't tolerate Flax too well. Depending on how much it has, and how it is prepared, I guess that could cause a reaction too. Flax oil apparently goes rancid quickly, so once the seeds are ground to make the bread, it would need refrigeration I think. Do they say to refrigerate it, and what's the expiration date?

I just had millet for the first time in years - no issues arose. But that's no help for your child I'm sure. As suggested it might be yet another ingredient.
