i recently went shopping and found new additions in the dozen "free from" range, I'm not going to lie - i did get a little excited!! i picked up these genius cheese and onion slices, re checked the ingredients as always and gave them a try, (i have cut out everything, but still have dextrose as i don't seem to have reacted in the past)

hours pass by and I'm getting bloated, but this happens from time to time, it gets to 5hrs later, i had del asleep, which happens sometimes when i've been glutened, i wake up with the horrendous cramps, within minutes i was crippled over in pain, one of my worst reactions in a while, my reaction lasted all night, no sleep, stomach was still tender 2days after, has anyone any clue? or has anyone else tried & reacted to these monstrous slices? could it have anything to do with this new 20ppm is now "gluten free" help!
