Reaction To Certain Ingredients?

Hello everyone!

I am curious to see if anyone else has had my experience.

I have been eating Bob's Red Mill bread mix made with my bread machine with no problems at all. I have been using Food for Life brown rice tortillas as a wrap for lunch with no problems. Pamela's baking mix (which rocks by the way) also causes no issues.

Last week, Earthfare was out of the tortillas so I decided to try Kinnikinnick sandwich bread that was in the frozen section. I have been soooooooooo sick! :(

I can't figure out which ingredient is the culprit. There are even some kinds of gluten-free pasta that just kill my stomach when I eat them.

Anyone else ever experience this and have any thoughts?

Well I can't eat most of KINNIKINNICK brand stuff because of the egg content or the risk of egg cc as I am allergic to egg as well as gluten. I looked at the difference in ingredients and noticed there is A LOT MORE STUFF in the KINNIKINNICK brand in comparison to Bob's and Pamela's bread mix! I am not sure which ingredient but if you look... the risks are alot more to choose from. I have problems with many of the prepackaged breads.

We certainly are individuals aren't we. :D I have no issues with Kinnickinnick or Pamela's but Bob's makes me curl up in a ball from the pain. I don't tolerate either the bean flour or the sorghum well. I also get ill from soy. It binds me up for days. The bottom line IMHO is that if it bothers you stay away from it. Many of us do have issues with different gluten free ingredients and it can be a chore to figure out what it is that is causing the issue.

I can't eat any of the three :angry:

I'm sensitive to tapioca and legume (pea protein, garbanzo and fava flours, etc). I stick to the Gluten Free Pantry mixes that don't contain those. There are quite a few that don't, actually :)

Soy flour is another thing I watch out for.
