Huh. Maybe there's some level of something that's more concentrated in some of those than others?

It might be worth talking to an allergist to rule out a full blown allergy, but I don't think there's a test for an intolerance. I think you're just supposed to completely eliminate anything you think might be a problem for a week or two. And then slowly add one thing at a time back in.

And sometimes it's just a mystery. I was getting stomach aches from hummus that were similar to my nut issues, though not as severe. I knew it wasn't chick peas because I was fine with falafel so I figured it was sesame, which made me very sad. Tested for sesame and soy (which I was also suspicious of) and I don't have allergies to either. I recently tried a new brand of hummus that is specifically labelled as nut free and no problems. So it could have been some other ingredient. Especially when all they list is "spices." There's a pink peppercorn that's in the nut family and I'd never know if it was in something.

It's made me really high strung every time I get a stomach ache, but sometimes it's just indigestion. It's kind of annoying when food is out to get you.
