Ok, so it's not all that bad.

But so far, I'm intolerant to the following:

- Propionates (preservatives 280-289 on the labels), which rules out things like "fresh" pasta, pita breads, roti, McDonald's, pre-prepared pizza bases, or any soft bread product that needs a shelf life
- Benzoates (preservatives 210-219), which rules out most soft drinks and some dairy products, including margarine and margarine blends (like Devondale Extra Spreadable)
- Lactose

And now, more recently, I seem to have discovered that I'm also intolerant to SOY. That's right. Soy. Can't have normal milk, can't have soy milk, and the bloody cafés in Melbourne haven't discovered lactose-free milk yet (though they somehow have discovered in Adelaide).

For the past nearly 2 years, I've been paying close attention to my stomach and what it's doing. I've been looking for patterns and reading labels, looking for common factors, which is how I discovered most of this stuff. Over the past few weeks, I've noticed that I feel nauseated for several hours after having a soy coffee.

So, I have gone out and bought Lacteze. This had better work.
