Amedei chocolate seems to work for me. Possible CC from nuts and milk but not gluten or soy and they taste wonderful. Unfortunately they are kind of expensive.

Twirls, by Cadbury, just chocolate they are really good, intense chocolate hit! Over in England this is what i eat and they are suitable for celiacs. Its the only chocolate i dont react too, and no soy either which is a bonus for me!

It seems like heaps of the Cadbury chocolates in the UK don't have soy lecithin in them. Is this true? :unsure:

I just bought a Taza 80% Dark Chocolate bar the other day. "Cacao beans (Dominican Republic), cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole vanilla beans. All ingredients certified organic. May contain traces of nuts."

It was DELICIOUS. Kind of grainy as someone else mentioned but it wasn't in a BAD way. And rather than a bitter edge, it almost had a sour tang mixed in with the sweet and chocolatey. What is wonderful is that there is a lady here in town who sells it. She said next time I need some to just call her and she'll deliver right here to my shop.

I think she's going to get a lot of my business, and those 31 pounds I've lost over the past 10 months will start creeping back in.

So what?!! :lol:

I am sensitive to below 10 ppm. I reliably have diarrhea from Lindt 85% and Chocolove dark chocolate. I can have Endangered Species chocolate and Trader Joe's chocolate chips (NOT their pound plus) without getting sick. I also do fine with Taza (the local boston chocolate that is less processed).

Just like there are different levels of sensitivity among celiacs, there appears to be different levels of sensitivity among super sensitive celiacs. What is definitely safe for one will get another. Enjoy Life chocolate chips get me too, yet I was able to eat the chocolate that a friend made. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to get uncontaminated starting materials recently.

I am cane sugar sensitive and dairy-free. I have finally found 2 raw cacao choices at my local Whole Foods. I add EatRaw Imported & Certified Organic Really-Raw Chocolate Powder to shakes.

Renee's Raw Chocolate (www.reneesrawchocolate.com) is expensive, but awesome. The kind I buy has coconut on it, but she makes some without. Everything is organic and raw, including cacao butter, coconut, honey, cacoa nibs, goji berries, cacao powder, maca powder, mesquite powder, and sea salt(the only thing not raw organic).

I've been reacting to Enjoy Life chocolate chips and bars. I don't know why it is but I'm positive now that it's causing problems. Too bad because I thought they tasted pretty good :/

I just saw my earlier posts on this thread (from nearly a year ago) and have to clarify something I said.

While I have not tried a Snickers Bar again (and they are probably fine for most people)---

I was not very clear in my reply about the Enjoy Life chocolate chips and bars.

I tolerate them very well! :)

They have given me NO adverse reactions, and I am a fast responder to CC, but I DO have to be careful with too much sugar. It gives give me a "racy heart" and nausea.

I had to give those up too. I hope to find a chocolate source again someday. I thought I was addicted to chocolate, but I managed.

    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024 
    • Are you saying people posted using your profile?  Please report that to Admin.  I haven't heard of anyone wanting to steal someone's profile to post on here.... but I guess it could happen.
    • My original email and profile got hacked and I couldn't get into it anymore so I created this one. I noticed that this was 13 yrs old afterwards. Thats what I get for putting up a post at 3am. I was up because I'm having a reaction to something and that's why I got on this site. It's been a long night. I think it is the Skyline canned chili I ate. I wish I had a testing kit because the company will not call or return my emails. They make the claim of gluten-free.
