Looking For Ultra Safe Brand Of Brown Sugar?

Hi!  Does any other super sensitive have a safe brand of brown sugar?  I am afraid to try some organic brands, because it doesn't say anything about whether it's processed in a facility with wheat, etc.  I have Simple Truth and Earthfare brand in my pantry that my family uses.  I am trying to make some applesauce that I can eat too:)

I am extremely sensitive and I haven't found a brand of processed sugar that I can tolerate.  I tried about a half dozen before I gave up.  I grow sugar beets and can eat them just fine.  I also had a brand of honey that I was able to tolerate.  I make my applesauce without added sweetener and it's very good.  I use golden delicious apples because they are one of the sweetest.  I don't think that my problems come from sugar being processed in a facility that processes wheat.  I don't think that sugar would be processed with wheat.  I think that it has something to do with the purification process, but that's just speculation.  I found that after not adding sugar to things, I got used to that taste and didn't really need the added sugar anymore.

i use whatever's on sale :) - you know, read the labels...  the only reason i switched (pre gluten-free pantry to gluten-free pantry) was because people (myself included) cc'd it by using the same spoon when baking with wheat flour.  i don't worry much about sugar being processed with wheat.

Hi.

I've used "sugar in the raw" for many years with no problems.

    • At least in Caucasian Irish people!
    • Thank you so much for the reply, the book recommendations and the link. Really useful and I appreciate it.  Will definitely look into them.  Thanks again. 
    • an allergy test for tap water sounds quite suspicious, i've never seen any type of water listed as part of a food allergy test panel. i can't imagine how that is possible to test for, sounds like it would be a extremely rare allergy also doesn't tap water vary depending where you are. do you have a reaction to drinking water? what are your symptoms when you eat those foods?
      if it was an IgE allergy test, i believe the blood test more commonly has false positives than the skin scratch test but false positives are very common for both thats why there is usually a disclaimer saying that it may not be nesscessary to cut out all positive results especially if you have no allergic reaction after eating it. you allergist may be able to offer you some kind of allergen immunotherapy or a dietician referral.
      if you had the IgA/IgG food intolerance/ sensitivity testing, the same type of testing that is promoted a lot on instagram, it is not scientifically accurate. the positive results just indicate food you have been exposed too which are then wrongly interpreted as meaning they are allergies. so i definitely wouldn't make any significant diet chances based those results. other than an elimination diet there is no accurate testing for food intolerances although it would be great if there was. its possible that you could coincidently be intolerant or allergic to some those positive foods or you may have no problem with them.

    • Are you sure TTG IGA was 1? Anyway, a high on any one test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Your not supposed to go gluten free until after all testing is done. Your results show high for dgp iga and dgp igg. Not a doc, my opinion only.
    • These are the results from walkinlab:  Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA           21  HIGH (20-30 weak positive) Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG           38  HIGH (>30 moderate to strong positive) t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA          1  HIGH (>10 positive) t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG           2  NEGATIVE Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum          271  POSITIVE ABNORMAL Wish I knew if these were a "little" bad or "a lot" bad.
