    HELP! Buckwheat Allergy
    kristylynn5 posted:
    Hi everyone. After being sick for quite some time, I finally got allergy tested. One of the more severe foods I reacted to was buckwheat. I was told to stay away from any products containing this. Though it is in most gluten free foods as a wheat supplement, I have also learned it is also used in other products mixed with their flour. I also learned that it is in citrus fruits and also onions and apple peels. I'm having great trouble dertermining what foods I CAN'T EAT. I recently had Barilla Past becase the ingredients had no mention of Buckwheat; it just said contains wheat ingredients. I got very sick and when I looked online, the website said that buckwheat is a primary ingredient in that brand of pasta, yet it was not written on the box. Can anyone help me as to how I can determine products containing buckwheat, even if it's not listed on their package? There is not much out there on the net. Thank you in advance!
