For the past 5-6 years I have been suffering from constant ulcers in my mouth and throat, it was so bad my face would swell up, I couldn't eat, drink, speak or swallow without pain. After many years of doctors and dentists having no idea what was going on I was finally put onto a Cinnamon and Benzoate free diet. It seems to be working and I have been on it for about 9 weeks now. I am glad its working however there are so many foods I cant have. I cant have anything that says "flavours" on the ingredients list unless the E numbers are listed and E numbers E210-E219 are not present. I cannot have any berrys, tomato pure, concentrated fruit juices, squash, chocolate. Anything that contains natural or artificial benzoates (preservatives), cinnamon or soya. I am really struggling to find foods I can eat. Especially sweets so please anyone who is also on this diet please let me know what you eat and any brands that are good. I really want to find some snacks that are great to eat, I really like sweets however as all that I have looked at have flavours even natural flavours do not list the E numbers present or contain the E numbers I cant have I have not had anything sweet like in 9 weeks. HELP!
P.S. they thought it may have been Crohn's disease and it is still not ruled out.
