What could I be allergic to in my bolognese?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello all

I am trying to figure out which would be the most likely ingredient that causes me body to become so itchy all over.

I made a Spaghetti Bolognaise which included beef mince, tin tomatoes, mixed herbs (ie rosemary, oregano etc), black pepper, salt and pasta.

I want to make it again and leave out a couple of things which are known causes of an allergic reaction making the body itchy?

hope someone can help

thanks

    Hi mike,

    I get this reaction with wheat and milk and to a lesser degree, chillies. So, I'd say try it without the wheat first.

    For the spaghetti, there are lots of alternatives out there these days and supermarkets stock their own brand often (this is in the uk ) it cooks slightly differently so, add a little oil to the water and stir so it doesn't stick together.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Mike,

    spaghetti is made from wheat. It's durum wheat usually. Alternatives are usually made from corn, rice other non wheat flours.
