Egg White Only?!

Recommended Posts

Guest digmom1014

Does anyone else only tolerate egg whites? I haven't been able to eat eggs since going gluten-free but, this morning I tried an egg white omelet and haven't had any problems. I can't tell you how excited I am!

Does the white come back first? Anyone else notice this?

it is just more easy to digest. I have many many many intolerances but not in the white of the eggs. It is the yellow part that is suposed to be "difficult".

Good for you!!

I have always had a problem with the yellow of the egg ,it is so bad that I even ( could not tolerate the pie that is brushed with the yellow) So I eat egg white freid with salt and pepper, I used to put that on toast , I just eat it with potatoes. i think it is the Sulfa that I am not able to digest.

I have always heard that the yellow is the "allergenic" part of the egg and many tollerate the white and not the yellow. I have no personal experience myself just the testimonies on allergy type boards.

I am lactose intolerant.

I have allergies to sulfites, sulfates, sulfa, and all sulfer dirivatives. Sulfa in egg yokes. Have only eaten egg whites for years.

Now I am to follow a glutten, starch free diet for rest of my life.

Eggs yolks are high in sulfur. I dont tolerate any foods which are high sulfur.

Do you also notice problems with foods such as garlic and onions?? If so...it is likely that you cannot tolerate foods with a high sulfur content.

Rachel, I have a severe allergies to sulfa, sulfites, sulfates and any sulfer dirivative. My doctor wouldn't believe me until he spoke to an allergist about me. Now there is no medication for me. I have had anaphlatic shock because of sulfites used as preservatives, and in mouth wash. I can't have flu shots because they are made from eggs. Garlic, onions and cabbage have a natural sulfa in them. Garlic will cause such pain in my chests from GERDs (Gastro esphogus reflux disease). Onion I have problems with, but found if the onions are cooked most sulfa is taken out, so not so bad. Cabbage also bad, so I use grape leaves to make cabbage rolls, they are very nice tasting.

Did big no no yesterday, had wonton soup, with gren onions, with egg rolls!!!!!!! Man, did my hands swell. Not very smart on my part. This morning my hands are still swelled and my left eye was just stinking. So now I have to look for recipes for wontons to make my own wonton soup. I guess it going to have to be all natural. Also found out the MSG (monosodium Glutamate (Glutamate is gluten), which I have a severe allergy too most of my life, was telling me something back when about my gluten problems. Didn't know then how serious my gluten problems would get.

Gerri,

The problem with sulfur foods is usually a metabolic issue....meaning its not so much an "allergic reaction" (although you can be getting that reaction from the sulfa/sulfites). If you cant tolerate natural sulfur in foods it can be because your body is unable to convert sulfur to sulfate....which is a necessary process in the body and crucial for maintaining health.

That is the reason for my problems which began 5 years ago. When sulfur metabolism is inhibitied this leads to impaired function of the sulfation pathway. A faulty sulfation pathway causes impaired detoxification of many things.

There is an enzyme which is responsible for converting sulfur to sulfate (which is necessary for sulfation pathway and intestinal health)...its called "sulfur oxidase". If that enzyme is down we are not able to convert sulfur to "useable" sulfate and the sulfur can accumulate to toxic levels...which cause reaction.

Sulfur metabolism can be damaged by mercury and heavy metals...it can also be a genetic problem. There may be addittional factors but these are the most common I believe.

Also found out the MSG (monosodium Glutamate (Glutamate is gluten), which I have a severe allergy too most of my life, was telling me something back when about my gluten problems. Didn't know then how serious my gluten problems would get.

Actually glutamate is not gluten. They are two entirely different things. MSG is bad for you for its own reasons (its a neurotoxin). However, glutamate is naturally ocurring in many foods....including tomato, parmesan, mushrooms, etc.....it is in no way linked to gluten/gliadin. ;)

Thanks Rachel,

My boys and I have serve reactions to sulfites, sulfates, sulfa and any derivatives of sulfer. My one son, has seizures when he has to much sulfates, sulfites, in his system.

My oldest son takes after me and just has lots of stomach problems.

What you said make lots of sense.

As for the glutamate, the article did say that glutamate can be in wheat flour. Any rate I have severe allergy to MSG, as well as corn, and anything that may contain sulfites, sulfates, sulfa and any derivatives of sulfer. I have problem with tomatoes, but I still eat them. Muschrooms, I have had no problems with them, nor with parmesan.

I have to watch hair shampoos, I end up with sores on my scalp.

These allergies are getting worse they are looking into RA and Lupus.
