Are you familiar with the Australian website
There you can read about other's experiences with food intolerances and salicylate contents in food and products. Sue and Howard Dengate have done a tremendous amount of work to educate the public and also have instigated a lot of changes in food manufacturers' additives. I would have to say this website and the Failsafe way of eating has saved my life. I have had three major anaphylactic episodes, landing in hospital ER where none of the doctors had a clue about salicylate intolerance .. or even what had salicylate in it (except for aspirin) . I also have a big problem with the flavour enhancer 635 .. and MSG to a lesser extent. I have not done their elimination diet as such but have avoided salicylate and any of the flavour enhancers as much as I can ... and I can recognise when I am building up now. If I keep going I know I will break out in hives but so far I have avoided the full blown anaphylaxis ... by taking CARB SODA (bi-carb) in water first and then, if necessary an antihistamine tablet. The quick acting Polaramine make me very drowsy so I try to only take them at night but the Telfast type are OK during the day but are slower acting.
I have only just started reading your website but, so far, I haven't read anything about Carb Soda. Maybe you already know about it? A bath or foot soak with it in is also very helpful to reverse the effects of too much exposure to salicylate.
