Multiple Food Allergy

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new here at this site so I hope I am not offending anyone by posting in the wrong place. I have multiple food allergeys, I can only have gluten free with out rice or corn, and most fruit and veg are also allergens (the birch group, apples etc.) Any ideas for a savoury type bread or starchy snack? I have some good recipies for chocolate cake. I am feeling really low trying to cope with it all. I have had allergies for years but it has got worse recently. Anyone with the same type of group of foods to be avoided?

Hoping to hear from someone soon.

Wow, I guess it would help to know all you are allergic to. What kind of testing did you have to diagnose these allergies, what specific allergies are they, and what are your symptoms when you eat them?

I eat a lot of fruit and meat with my allergies, and sometimes potatoes and rice, though I try not to over do those things because I've been trying to lose a few pounds. I guess some kinds of potato chips might be ok for you, like the Cape Cod brand. They are basically canola oil, sea salt, and tatos. Can you eat dairy?


allergy to wheat/oats, milk, eggs, corn, yeast, tree nuts, turkey, seeds, mold, dust, dander, pollens, soy and other legumes

Son: allergy to milk, avoiding nuts, eggs, fish

I'm allergic to rice, too, among other things. What are you looking for, specifically?

There is a company called Against the Grain in Brattleboro Vt. You can probably find it online. It is made with only tapioca flour. It does have dairy in it though. Also Breads From Anna has a mix that I believe has no rice or corn. It has sorghum and millet. Check it out online.

Good luck.

Hi, I'm relatively new, too. That is, I read here a lot more than I post. I believe I am gluten-intolerant (have derm. herpetiformis-like rash and am awaiting some tests), and I'm nursing my third son, who seems to have multiple food allergies. Rice, oats and corn are strongly suspected...we don't have them all nailed down yet. His older brother has an IgE allergy to peanuts (anaphylactic), so I'm avoiding some other major allergens (milk, eggs, shellfish, nuts, peanuts) just on general principle. With such a restricted diet, we're always on the lookout for acceptable foods.

Have you looked at Cheecha Krackles, the Gluten-Free kind? You can go to www.cheecha.ca to check them out.

I just ordered some through www.allergygrocer.com. I have no idea whether they're good or not, but they're potato-based and different from the same-ol, same-ol chips.

You might want to check out Allergy Grocer, because you can check boxes for what you want to exclude. They have check boxes for corn, rice, gluten and many others.

I do get the Frito-Lay "Natural" line of chips at Target...fewer (and better) ingredients to read.

I've also become a big fan of the good old-fashioned pot roast with roast beef, carrots, potatoes and onions (if you're not allergic to any of those ingredients). It's the simplest thing ever to make in a crock pot, and I'm not much on foods that take a lot of prep time.

[Just curious...being corn allergic, do you ever have problems with corn-fed beef? I have wondered whether that could be an issue for my son.]

On a baked potato, have you tried nutritional yeast as a topping? It has a rich/savory/nutty flavor that is pretty nice with salt, pepper and olive oil.

Good luck finding your cravable snack.

Both CheriA and AndreaB have to deal with quite a bit of additional food allergies/intolerances. I'm sure one of them will show up soon with some ideas, or perhaps you could PM them. I know for sure CheriA's daughter can't have rice, and soy is the biggie with AndreaB. Cheri makes a sorghum sandwich type bread, the recipe is on Twin Valley Mills website. I don't know the address off hand, but if you google sorghum Twin Valley, it should show up. I don't know if you'll have to modify the recipe or not, I can't remember exactly what's in it.

recipes: these are corn, rice, gluten-free, DF, also birch group here, too, I have stopped using cider vinager Sounds like we have similar foods to avoid, I am also beginning to wonder if I need to stay away from buckwheat, so moving towards millet and tapioca. I just found out I cant have quinoa, dont know if it is related or not.

for a yummy tortilla like recipe to share at a dinner party, more like italianish can use other flours as well http://www.recipezaar.com/189571

we found some tapioca flour only vietnamese "rice" wraps (although I am suspicious)

I use lots of sorghum, millet, buckwheat, and tapioca

wraps: 1 cup buckwheat flour, dash of salt, 1/3ish cup tapioca, TBP or so oil, and warm water to make runny (1 cup?) let sit for a bit then pour very thin liquid into an oiled, heated pan (I use cast iron skillet). flip when bubbles pop on one side, makes for very good wraps - salmon salad, etc.

BRead - you may have to tweek this to your liking:

1 cup tapioca

1 cup millet or grabanzo

1 cup sorghum

1 tsp salt

2 tBsp sugar

2 eggs, 1 tsp vinegar, 2 TSBp oil

1 1/2- 1/ 3/4 cup warm water w/ 1 package yeast and pinch of sugar

pancakes

1 cp any mix of flours (buckwheat, 2/3 millet + 1/3 amaranth)

1/3 tapioca

1 tsp soda - mixed in well

2 tBSPsugar

dash salt

2 tsp oil

2 eggs

water to pancake consistency

Hope that those are a start!!

"Grain-Free Fourmet" by Jodi Bager and Jenny Lass

All recipes in this cookbook are grain-free (they use almond flour), refined-sugar-free (use honey or maple syrup) and low-lactose

Using almond flour sounds wierd, but is surprisingly good and the baked goods actually rise with the leavening.

So if you can eat almonds, you might look for this cookbook in your library or do like I do - buy it used through Amazon. If you'd like a couple recipes from the book to try out, PM me.
