Potato, wheat, dairy, pepper, citrus intolerance

Posted , 5 users are following.

I recently had an intolerance test and I've to avoid potatoes, wheat, dairy, peppers, citrus fruits, bananas for a couple of months and try and elimination diet then re introduce.

I've been trying to buy in things for my cupboard but the one thing I'm struggling with is potatoes. they seem to be in every wheat free or dairy free product.

i have for years been using wheat free pasta and cheese only to find that the cheese has potato starch in it.

does anyone else have to avoid potatoes, wheat and dairy and if so can you help me out with what sort of products you get?

    Never tried to do that, but oats and rice are good.

    One thing, if you get oats, get organic oats. Regular oats have so much glyphosate (RoundUp) in them, they can cause problems.

    In fact most grain products are probably best eaten organic now, especially in terms of an elimination diet.

    I've been avoiding potatoes now for two years, simply because they have so many carbs. Have not really noticed potato starch as an ingredient in anything I buy, or else it's so far down the list I've ignored it.

    Hi there,

    Yes, I am wheatfree, dairy free and avoiding potatoes and agree it's a tough one!

    Violife cheese and cream cheese doesn't say it has potato starch in it. Gluten free/wheatfree flours tend to have potato flour so it's something to look out for. I use chickpea flour to make pastry and sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes.

    There are recipes online where you can make your own tofu cheese that maybe helpful for you?

    Hi there,

    I went with when trying to eliminate carbs from my diet. It's an eight week plan that follows the "low carb " approach which would be most beneficial to you, since you're intolerant to most carbohydrate rich foods. offers a great plan that'll get you adjusted to eliminating certain foods, and it's also enjoyable. As for dairy, you can opt for substitutes like nut or seed milks (almond milk, cashew milk, hemp milk), and try finding recipes that include nutritional yeast or tofu as a replacement. Hope this helps
