This is not just for the Vegan group but it is a food issue that others have. I am sure there are many here.[agnostic.com]

I have no food issues at all... Except liver... Lol

If you knew the varieties in the world you would find you have plenty of food issues. Go into a Asian restaurant that serves local Asians and order chicken feet, jellyfish or ducks eyes. I once went in a restaurant in Germany and ordered Hoof steak. I was warned it was for certain people and the waiter was right (it literally comes from the hoof of the cow). EEW.
One other thing you may have food issues and not know it. There is a test called a Foodstats Antibody Assessment. I took this and found foods (eggs, soy, sesame and Sunflower seeds that were causing a reaction and I didn't know it. It is an easy test.

@JackPedigo Ummmm... I'm part Asian... Lol... Been in more Asian restaurants than you can count...

@Cutiebeauty So I'm curious, what fun things have you eaten?


My problem turned out to be not the gluten, but the fact that wheat can be treated with Roundup to shorten the length of time it takes for the wheat to dry for harvest. This is an off label use and does not have to be reported by the farmers. I developed "leaky gut syndrome" which is likely the result of eating bread products that were made with wheat treated with Roundup. It is hard to prove though. So my solution was to avoid all products made with wheat, and yes going gluten free. I now find that organic wheat products are safe for me.

Most gluten issues stem from hybridization of wheat over the years and GMO wheat (like you say for Roundup) is just one of many hybridization's. My late partner when home to Iran one year to visit her family. Her brother is a flour inspector and she said she had little problem with the breads there.


I'm a gluten hound

Ever heard of Seitan. It is gluten on steroids.

@JackPedigo I can buy cans of gluten at the Asian market
