What happens to sugar after it is baked? Does Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose have the same chemical properties after baking or do they become similar at the end? More theory than practice as I don't bake much anymore.

I apologize in advance if this is a previously asked question. I tried searching here on Paleohacks for MCS, chemical sensitivities, etc. but wasn't able to locate any similar posts. I also haven't been able to find much in the way of blog posts... (more)

Don't know. My issues with triggers are better but not gone. I still get headaches, wheezing, and coughing with triggers, but haven't had a full scale lung exacerbation since eliminating grains. I'd love it to just go away, but I'll take the... (more)

I have switched my diet to be more paleo over the past 3 weeks. Since my switch I have noticed when I would consume processed foods when I cheated, I could taste chemicals. What is the cause of that? About the only thing I really crave now... (more)

Kinda amazing isn't it? We were so tuned to accept what we were being given. I mean, I used to be a soda maniac -- now it tastes terrible, the cabonation makes me gassy and bloated... How did I use to drink 3-4 a day?

If so, what were your results? I am going to try it for a month or two too see if it helps me get rid of my rosacea. The diet is very limited and I would have to eliminate most vegetables and fruit as well as important sources of fat from olive... (more)

I've been doing failsafe diet for myself and my children for 15 years. Only recently I've found out about paleo and fat and carbs. At first the failsafe diet is wonderful and I could trace almost any ailment to something we ate! But I now realise... (more)

So, most of us have the perspective of Paleo being about food - eating organic, free-range, grass-fed, etc. Another perspective is eschewing chemicals we ingest or are subjected to or otherwise are harmful environmentally - laundry detergent,... (more)

Oh God! This is literally the first time I have ever thought about how chemically fuelled the rest of my life is. Not just what I put IN my body but what I put ON my body, in my hair, on my dishes, in my home! WOW! I mean, I buy the non-chemically... (more)

I was speaking with someone this morning who used to be involved in poultry processing. He told me that typically, after a chicken is slaughtered and eviscerated, the meat is then dipped in a chemical bath to kill germs. He also said that... (more)
