Thanks for the well wishes Jmg. It appears that you & cycling lady think the sugar maybe our issue, let me clarify that's not our issue for it is manifesting as one of our additive intolerance exposure symptoms. One both my son and I have discovered over 2016. It's not a sugar crash type or a gi symptom in our case . But excellent info for consideration for others.
My concern was about additives not listed on a label which is currently not required by regulations and the havoc it can cause the consumer .It's a clear cut symptom we get when exposed to a corn derived additive. At this juncture we are possibly sensitive to a highly processed flavor or coloring from a source other than corn that would be helpful to know what that source is per label . That's where transparency in labeling would be helpful to me and others like me. The links I included on my post reflect concerns by others out on the web to this concept. The food diary is helpful and has been to us in discovering these sensitivity issues, but not ideal when not all additives are labeled.
the label says 100 percent juice but my body says otherwise . I am well aware from personal job exposure that the food industry is not required to list every ingredient particularly if it is not a top 8 allergean which is why I went look for the info to share.
As you both pointed out and maybe even helped to bring to light the importance of sugar labeling my dream is to see it a step further with additives.
I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing. Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread? The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.
OMG...they even have crumpets. I really may have to move there..........
We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good. It makes delicious toast! The rolls are very good also.
I agree JMG, in fact I've never bothered with the prescription because I hoped by not having it I'd be saving the NHS some money. I imagine this will put a burden on some people though.
I can't say I've found a gluten free bread I really like yet in the UK, though, although there was a loaf at a wedding the other day that was as near to the real thing as I have tasted in years - but it wasn't clear where it came from (which is a bit of a worry, perhaps it was real bread after all!).
Do you have a favourite? I think Genius is probably my favourite, best toasted, but M&S produce a seeded loaf that actually is so convincing that when my sister made a batch of cheese and pickle sarnies with it no-one noticed! I think the seeds were a distraction.
I had some amazing artisan gluten-free focaccia once but no idea where that came from either - probably the real thing too! No wonder I've got 'gastritis'!
I have considered buying a bread making machine but not because I'd make bread with it - what I really miss is those iced currant buns with cherries on the top.
