Hello! Several of my friends are either gluten or lactose intolerant..and I am forever looking up what they can / can't eat. I'm actually working for a start up and we working on a way to help people with food intolerances or dietary requirements find out what's in their food, see how healthy it is and then connect you to healthier products. Does anyone use anything similar or have ideas on the above? I would love to get your thoughts. If you have 5 mins would be very grateful if you could complete this survey!
After having dental work done my dentist gave me a prescription for a special toothpaste, Duraphat,
after a few weeks of use i started getting serious stomach pains and diarrhea, i had to write down changes in
my diet or anything different used. I had a look at the ingredients label on the toothpaste as i know i cannot
tolerate sorbitol at all, the 3rd ingredient was liquid sorbitol !! surprise surprise, i stopped using it and withing 4 days
the symptoms were significantly reduced.
Sorbitol is a sugar substitute and is used by the food industry as sweetener and wetting agent (humectant), but can also be present naturally (dried fruit). Sorbitol intolerance and fructose malabsorption are often interlinked.
That pretty much sums me up!
What are the symptoms of histamine intolerance and what organs can be affected? What symptoms have been reported by people who suffer from histamine intolerance?
Hi - just joined and my first post is to give info not ask for it!
I found this helpful, having the same question. I checked my Sainsburys Greek to find it has one from each category, harmful, beneficial and neutral. I'm eating it just fine but my food issues are not serious.
Probiotics that Increase Histamine
As mentioned previously, there are a variety of bacteria that can produce histamine and some of these species are commonly found in the most popular and widely used probiotic supplements or probiotic foods. If one has high histamine, it would be best to avoid probiotics that contain these.
The following bacteria degrade histamine, so they can be used to help lower one’s histamine level. However, do be aware that bifidus can be a bully sometimes too and can try to take over and become overgrown as well, if lactobacillus is not present in sufficient amounts.
Some soil based organisms
The following bacteria are neutral
Lactobacillus rhamnosus (down-regulates histamine receptors and up-regulates anti-inflammatory agents)
Hi I was lactose intolerant for 3yrs, until my mum passed away and I stayed in her house for a week. The lactose intolerance all but went while we were there. My husband was diabetic so every drink yoghurt etc in our house had artificial sweeteners in it.
If I drink normal coke all day then I can have dairy and I am fine.
If I have diet coke then I am fine until I eat dairy, then the bloating and wind starts and I am running to the toilet. I have Lactase tablets that help a bit if I accidentally have artificial sweetener other than that I always have Imodium in my bag as a last resort.
Is there anyone else out there got the same problem?
is FODMAP ok for GLuten, Lactose and Fructose intolerances?
Can anyone here suggest some low carb recipes? It would be nice if you could share some chicken recipes which wouldn’t cause any food allergies. I had undergone a lap band surgery from a clinic in Richmond Hill (
)on Feb 1. The procedure was successful. I was looking for some diet suggestions after this procedure and found this group very interesting. Looking forward to tasty recipes.
It is very hard to choose the correct diet plan when you have multiple food allergies. In my case, this task was even more difficult because I'm overweight as well and I sought the help of an expert to get knowledgeable advice on diet and weight management (
). I think getting the help from such servicers will help you to choose the exact and complete diet for you. Here is a link for people with food intolerance which help you to prepare delicious dishes. hope this will help you all. Thank you.
Since my last post I twice had yoghurt again. Once following recommendations from a dietician I took alvita or some special (or specially marketed) more expensive yoghurt from Danone. Diorrhea and bad D till I stopped. Recently a last try with a "mild" "Greek style" natural yoghurt-that was yesterday. Awful D. today, so it looks very much as though yoghurt is a no no for some people with histamin issues. But jury still out on it, could it be that it is not histamin but some other issue, maybe SIBO??
A last point: I am always frustrated by the amount of times I read "get a diagnosis from your doctor" or "dont try this diet before you know you have xyz". I have been running from doctor to specialist to doctor. None can or will give me a final diagnosis. The only thing which all professional practitioners are unfailingly comeptent at is billing.
Hi. I would like to share some healthy recipe which is recommended by naturopathic doctors in Mississauga.
I have tried the protein smoothie, South American salad, orange glazed salmon and the berry smoothie. They are just yummy. You should also give it a try.
Last week I had tried a fructose free dessert with apple and cinnamon. It is delicious. Hereby I'm sharing the recipe of the same.
2lbs chopped apple, 2tsp of Cinnamon, Juice of one lemon
How to prepare:
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Toss all the ingredients and place in a baking dish. Cook apple for about 30 minutes. Yummy desert is ready. Serve warm.

I'm from Canada. I have gluten intolerance and I love pizza. I had been searching for gluten free pizza and at last found gluten free pizza crust in take & bake pizza online ( www.freshslice.com/take-n-bake/ ) . Now I would like to know the gluten free toppings which I can add. Do you have any ideas??
That's a great link rjshona
Glad to meet you.. How are you doing???
Hi! My son was diagnosed with the same. I started a blog about our journey. It's fairly new (so I don't have tons of info yet - I'm getting there) and I would love to share ideas with you. I have some recipes and I started a list of acceptable foods.
But, as mention earlier, it is important to start with the elimination diet and slowly add new foods so your body has a chance to heal. Please reach out - I'm very happy to help!
