Sulfured Dried Fruit-- oh no!!

by 145 · March 19, 2012 at 11:59 PM

I had a sweet attack and decided to be bad and ate a few sliced of dried mango. I had just landed in a new city and immediately hunted for a grocery store. I guess my craving got the better of me because I didn't check to see if the fruit was sulfured or not. It was.

This is the first time i've had sulfured anything in weeks and am now feeling this weird emptiness inside of me from my stomach to my throat. It might be a coincidence but I'm also getting a fablous headache.

Has anyone had this issue before/have any advice. :(

Note to self: Paleo karma will bite you in the butt.

If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to the sulfites in alcoholic ciders, feeling a killer hangover from even one drink.

Dried fruit with sulfites is a major migraine trigger for me. I'm very careful to avoid it.
