Hi John: I thought I recognized that address. How is everything
there? You have probably already gotten some answers but I thought
I'd respond too. People who are allergic to wheat are most often
allergic to gluten - a protein complex formed when wheat flour is
moistened. It is present in every product that has flour - so baked
goods, breaded items, etc. People usually discover they have it when
they suffer gi distress or hives. It is a crummy allergy to have
because there are some many offensive foods. Even rye and oatmeal
breads will have some wheat flour in them. My local grocery store
sells some speciality mixes that don't contain flour and I know there
is a mail order operation that sells many wheat free products.
Sorry, I don't have a number or name. Call a local hospital and ask
for the dietitians - they should be able to help you.
Good luck and hope to see you in Ithaca in August....
