I consaltated my allergy cookbook for this one.Alternative sweeteners include :honey,maple syrup,date sugar,fruit juices,molasses(sorghum),grain-based sweeteners such as rice syrup and barley malt (avoid if you knowingly have grain allergies),agave nectar and stevia. { This is from a Rodale book company,or(800) 848-4735 copyright 2001 The Allergy Self-Help cookbook by Marjorie Hurt Jones,R.N. } This book helped save me from going hungry /dying when I was diagnosed with corn/oat/ragweed/tree/grass/and latex allergies years ago.We also took it to the hospital dietary when all of my meals were sent back untouched because they had corn or oats on my plate. Most people don't realize that there is no cure for food allergies and that death can occur from them.Also watch which,if any,brand of vitamins/over the counter medicines you take as most of them contain sugars as wellfor binding compoumds.I pray that someone is helped by my post here.And go quickly to an allergist for tests.Do not accept just a skin rash test if you think you have food allergies as well ask to be tested for them. Keep me in touch please.Good luck,GOD bless you.

I have cut out wheat and feel much better also sugar so I like the alternative sweeteners. Since going off wheat and sugar I have no cravings for either. My biggest problem is time to prepare meals. I work and just getting my lunch and breakfast together to go with me leaves me no time to think about dinner. any thoughts? Sorry about your allergies. Also sorry the food industry has poluted our wheat. After all God created it.
