We got a list of ingredients for the voodoo doughnut, and Beth set them out in s spreadsheet for me, divided into:
1) The Doughnut
2) The Vanilla Frosting
3) The Fruit Loop Topping
There were about 150 different things in there. No wonder I had a reaction, I'm surprised everyone doesn't have an allergy to at least one thing in there.
Well we (i.e. Beth) went through eliminating things we (i.e. Beth) know I've eaten before, and after a while two suspects for the the lurgy-inducer popped out. We need to do more testing, but at present we think it's either propyl paraben or propylene glycol.
The latter is used in many topical applications, and many people have reported skin rashes. It's also used in some toothpastes, and has given people gum problems. What's it doing in my food?
