Hey Chris--Those food allergies are tricky and keep us creative don't they! Takes quite awhile to get the hang of what we need and keeps us on our toes to always be on the look out. I have multiple food allergies too--wheat, oats, nuts, soy, citrus, most green vegies, carrots, to name a few!! Makes life interesting!! Aloha, Cris
