Trigger Foods to Watch Out For!

Being completely intolerant to tomatoes means the slightest hint of tomato can trigger symptoms and ruin my day.  Take yesterday for example: I ate a packet of Beef flavour Hula Hoops and spent the rest of the night on the loo.  Nice. Who’d have guessed that they contain tomatoes!?!? They are BEEF flavour – NOT beef and tomato!  Oh well.  It was my fault for not checking, and a good reminder that I always need to be on my guard.

So, I though I would start off a list of “Danger” foods.  I.e. foods that you might not at first consider would cause you harm, but have tomatoes in the ingredients. If you can think of any others, please leave a comment!

So here goes (foods that have caught me out in the past):

BEEF flavour hula hoops

Any Prawn Cocktail Flavour Crisps

Most brands of Sandwhich Pickle

Most brands of Brown Sauce

Strawberry Flavour Bootlace Sweets

Chilli and Lemon Twists

Walkers Sweet Chilli Sensations

A certain famous brand of mouth-wash contains a chemical which causes the same reaction.

I’ll add more when I can think of them…
