It was Digest. My hfs only carries 2, this one and another brand, can't remember the name. I did take it w/ food.
I have no problems w/ pineapple or papaya. My only food allergy is egg, although dairy bothers me a little (I don't drink milk at all, just yogurt and some cheese sometimes. I used to be allergic to milk, but am not anymore.) I LOVE piineapple. They've been carrying fresh organic ones locally lately and my kids and I eat them until our mouths are too sore.
I think you may have something there w/ the aspergillus thing. I don't remember reading that it contains aspergillus. This is the same bacteria found in miso, right? I also get similar symptoms from miso. I bought a whole tub of chick pea miso from South River months ago, but haven't been using it for the same reason as the enzymes. I assumed it was the chick peas, b/c I also get this from hummus, but I add miso to my hummus usually and leave it out at room temp for a few hours before refrigerating. hmmmm......
Is there another brand of enzymes that you tihnk I would do well with? I'll see if that's the one my hfs has, if not I'll order it online. Thanks so much!
