Obviously I won't be consuming mass amounts of it, but in small quantities, it should be okay right? I have to avoid dairy, eggs, sugar, sugar substitutes, and gluten. Basically, there's not much left. Any valid information, links to research, etc, would be much appreciated. Please no scare tactics or opinion-only responses, as this is a very serious and real issue for me, and I am seeking true information. Thank you.
