Allergic to Wheat?
My doctor said I could be allergic to wheat. He took a few blood tests but wont be able to tell me for another 2 weeks. I have never been allergic to anything before. I thought people with allergies were born with them? I no a lot of foods have wheat in them but can anyone tell me all the foods with wheat in it? Or atleast most of what you know?

Sexy dude
if that is the cause, your disease is called "celiac sprue," then you will have to avoid wheat product for the rest of your life,

here is the site for that


Search the web for Celiac Disease. Many people have a genetic predisposition to it. Wheat seems to be the culprit. These web sites often have a list of wheat products. But, you may be jumping the gun, wait to hear what your doc comes up with.

Hi. I am not allergic to wheat, but have Celiac Disease, which your doc should be testing you for. Celiac is an autoimmune disease inw hich a personc annot digest gluten, a protein in wheat, rye and Barley.
Here is a list of forbidden foods for the Gluten Free diet. If u are only allergic to wheat then u do not need to avoid oats, rye and Barley. But if u have Celiac Disease you will.

Feel free to email me for more info on Celiac.

You can become allergic to anything later in life. You don't have to be born with allergies. My husband became deathly allergic to ibuprofin when he was about 36. Most things made with flour contain some sort of wheat. There are more and more people developing these allergies. You will find products now advertise "Wheat free" right on the package. Things like crackers, pastas and cereals contain lots of wheat. But now there are tons of companies that are making them wheat free. You will have to start reading labels pretty closely until you get used to it. You will probably want to stay away from anything that says whole grain. I think things made with white flour would be ok, but ask your doctor that to be sure.

You can become allergic, or sensitive, to anything starting from any moment in your life.

In some situations, you may have been allergic to a thing all your life, but you just didn't show symptoms.

For example, 100% of all people are allergic to the oils in Poison Ivy. However about 1 in 4 do not have any "symptoms" when they are exposed to poison Ivy. Having no symptoms from a previous exposure to poison Ivy does not mean you won't have symptoms on the next exposure though.

You can develop an allergy to anything at any time in your life.

Bread, Cereal, Pasta, Cookies, Crackers, Ice Cream, Ketchup.........check out this website http://www.webmd.com/allergies/guide/wheat-allergy

Hi, please note that an allergy to wheat isn't the end of the world. Mostly because its not the same as a gluten allergy so you can still have oats, oat flour (which btw is the completely replacable to white flour, so 1 cup of oat flour = 1 cup of wheat flour).

Besides the obvious, bread products: Look out for enriched flour (wheat (white) flour, food starch (if its packaged in Canada that is corn starch (usually) but in the USA, its usually wheat starch).

Flavoured Tuna, Soy sauce but there are non-wheat varities, terakyi (because of the Soy sauce involved), some processed meats, most processed foods glazes for hams, roast beef, pork roast (just the glazes).

All pasta except for rice pasta and other grains which should identifiy themselves in the name have wheat.

Battered foods have them!! Fried chicken wings, Onion rings, fries, most of the fries from Fast food restaurants.

I find that I make a lot of my own food now, or once I find "safe" products, I write down the product brand name & store & don't get super creative!

Try glass noodles (rice) or Thai noodles, even soba noodles but make sure the soba noodles you are are buckwheat which isn't actually a wheat at all! Neither is wheat grass--its just called that!

Oh yes, you should also avoid dried flowers, plants that you can purchase at stores, not stuff you have dried yourself as the stuff they spray on the flowers is actually wheat based.

Anything gluten free is also safe & because celiacs (ppl who have a gluten intolerance) are a larger market than those of us who have a wheat allergy or intolerance, then its easier to find food that is gluten free over food that is simply wheat free.

To find bread with a similar texture, try tapicoa flour mixtures, things to avoid, rice bread--its almost always very crumbly & hard to eat because of that. Plus it doesn't toast well.

Actually hardly ANY non-wheat product toasts in a toaster well except for items made with oat flour or tapicoa mixtures.

You may also find a bakery around, if you bring them a recipie, for only $4-5 a loaf, you should be able to get them to make you your bread or your dough vs you doing it.

I have a local bakery make me wheat free food on a regular basis.

As well, try to avoid spelt & kamuta both are orginal versions of wheat. In the 70's they brought the 2 together to make a more resilent wheat product that would last through the winters easier.

So that is when the most of the allergies to wheat began to appear since late 70's, and up.

If you need help, try to google for your local Celiac association & through them, you should find local bakeries, support groups, etc.

Good luck
