Do you know of a good multi-vitamin that is totally allergenic?

Meaning, that it doesn't use the protein part to get the nutritional source?

Hope I'm making sense?

If you are allergic to the "protein" part of the food then would there be a phyto-chemical or some antioxidant vitamins out there that don't use that part so we can take them, or perhaps they are all made without the "protein" part and they're all safe????????????

Have you spoken to a registered dietician?
That can be an unhealthy diet long term.

With Oral Allergy Syndrome you should be okay if the fruits and veggies are cooked, no? See the CFIA's page about Oral Allergy Syndrome:

Quote:
Most reactions are caused by raw foods, since allergenic proteins are usually destroyed by cooking (i.e., heat labile). The main exceptions to this are celery and nuts which may cause reactions even after being cooked.


I agree that getting some professional help is a good idea. There are recorded cases of people developing scurvy because of restrictive (no fruit or veggie) diets:

1. Food allergy as a new risk factor for scurvy - You would have to pay for it to read it - but at least you can see the title!

2. Better Health Channel - Scurvy:
Quote:
High risk groups
There are various factors or lifestyle issues that might increase the risk of scurvy. These include:
* Allergy diets – which are very restrictive in an attempt to manage particular allergies.


3. The Angry Allergist - The Case of the Desperate Woman
