2017-10-06 Fabulous Food Allergy Friday

It's time for the porcupine picture again. Because.

New corn allergy derivatives and sweeteners to add to the list of things to avoid – Psicose, Allulose, Dolcia Prima™, AllSweet™, D-Psicose (D-allulose, D-ribo-2-hexulose, C6H12O6), as seen here. Yay. Not that I (Denise) even try to eat any processed food any more. 

In the we-already-knew-this-as-people-with-allergies department, NPR has an article that ‘Hypoallergenic’ And ‘Fragrance-Free’ Moisturizer Claims Are Often False. The article states that “[n]early half — 45 percent — of the products in the study that claimed to be “fragrance-free” actually contained some form of fragrance. And the vast majority — 83 percent — of products labeled “hypoallergenic” contained a potentially allergenic chemical. Bottom line: The vast majority of moisturizers that are best-sellers “have some form of potential skin allergen,” Xu says.”

So in the depressing news, “are oats gluten-free?” No, not unless they are CERTIFIED. If you want to know if you can tolerate oats, I suggest trying Purity Protocol oats, which control growing and processing conditions for the best possible outcome. I really like the oats I’ve gotten from GF Harvest (I have not tried their travel packages).

To end on a nicer note, if quinoa’s your thing, I love that someone’s worked out the way to puff it at home, and this kettle quinoa sounds addictive.

Have a great weekend everyone!
