  1. I an very sensitive to gluten, but I also cross-react to rice as well. I don't have any other food allergies besides gluten and rice. (Rice doesn't actually surprise me, because it is also in the grass family like wheat and shares 89.5% of the same DNA.) I recently tried the plain Himalayan Salt Kettle Chips cooked in 100% avocado oil and reacted. It was a low grade reaction, but all the telltale symptoms were there. The first time it was from a full single serve bag. The next time I tested it by eating a single chip; I could already feel the warmth, rush to my head and brain fog creeping in, so I stopped eating it. I wish I had a Nima sensor; that would be the first food that I tested. I don't react to plain Lays (potatoes, salt and cooked in corn oil). Some people do cross-react with corn, which is another grain in the grass family. Some common grass family: wheat, barley, oats, triticale, rice, corn, bamboo/bamboo shoots, sugarcane.
  2. I reached out to the company and they responded that old packages of the product still contain the slime powder, but newer ones don't. Please see attached.
  3. You can DNA test your son and yourself for the celiac genes yourself. I found out that I carried one copy of the HLA-DQB1 gene and my half-brother carries two (homozygous) from the 23andme test. It goes on sale during holidays for 30% off, usually. The test is FDA approved. They can't diagnose any conditions, but they can tell you if you carry the gene. http://www.23andme.com
  4. No, I don't have any latex allergy. I use latex gloves at home regularly for housecleaning and don't react at all.
  5. I was helping my husband fill a bunch of Zuru Bunch O' Balloons and was unaware that they contain a clear gel that helps retain the water inside them. As the balloons were filling, this gel was leaking out and getting on my skin. I have no other known skin allergies besides related to my gluten intolerance. Itches like crazy. This product is not marked as containing wheat or gluten, because it isn't meant for internal use, but may cause external reactions.
