ok, here is another one -- carrots. I used to eat them all the time.. steamed and raw. So, I noticed I get irritable lately when I eat them.

I cut them out for about a week, felt better. Today I had some at work, and it did not feel good. The sugars made me tired after a half an hour. Come to find out, hunters do not do well on carrots. has anyone else experienced this?

I'm not a Hunter, but I love carrots.  I eat them cooked for breakfast quite often.  I also eat them raw as sticks...  It is possible that they are too sweet for the O, though...

Interesting. I have carrots as Neutral on my SWAMI. I do feel I crave for something sweet after my salad that contains carrots most days. Perhaps it's the sugar in carrots that is messing up my insulin... Haven't really worked out the puzzle, but maybe I should cut it out for a few days and see how I feel. I did do a food intolerance test a year ago and it said I was intolerant of carrot. But the results could also be interpreted as me having too much of any particular food.

Resurrecting this thread, as I reacted with skin breakouts after eating just a small amount of grated organic carrot in chow mein, last night... How did you get on after your episode above, Ballet...?

It seem to react the same if the carrots are raw or cooked, organic or not??!! I remember snacking on a couple of raw carrots a couple of years ago & having the same immediate reaction, but put it down to probable fertilisers/pesticides etc Does anyone else have a problem with carrots?

I have the same reaction with any foods high in carbs/sugars, sulphites or salicylates, so am trying to work out what possibly causes the problem

Possum petal when you eat a chow mein, how do you figure it was the carrots and not the MSG or flour, was it at a restaurant or home made? lol

The other things is that it may be what i call the top up effect as in you had more sugar than usual all day and the carrots took you over your limit.

some reactions take 72 hours even if most are from 10 mins to 48 hours, some take longer still, who knows how long.

also Marjorie how many carrots did you eat, I only have one, that enough for me, and a half raw mi my salad. one carrot would be about a cup although I suppose it depends so much on the size.

Not saying you are not reacting to carrots as they are know to be a bit funny with skin as is celery.

but on low fodmap recommendation I stick to one celery stick and one carrot at a time. (again just mirroring M's diet.

PC glad you chimed in but you needn't laugh I associated it to be the carrot because of the reaction I have had before to carrots (& they are a black dot) & also my responses are always immediate (or within half an hour)

The chow mein was my own recipe - no flour & certainly no MSG... It was really simple & I only had a small amount - lamb mince, small amount of white rice, equivalent of 1 grated carrot, some bok or pak choy, pinch of himalayan salt & a tiny dash of worcestershire sauce (as I had no chicken stock cubes & wouldn't have used it anyway)

Oh & as I wasn't going to eat last night as I had fasted all day*, but there was too much for my husband & chow mein doesn't keep, plus he was going away... (*so certainly no topup effect from sugars)

Hi Possum,

Sorry to hear about your episode. I have no idea what could have caused it esp
since it is an organic carrot.

I never had bad reactions like that. Just sometimes a little sleepy but not sure if it is the "sugar" in the carrot that causes this.

Oh, if they are a black dot then maybe you should try avoiding it for a couple of months at least???!

Ballet - I wasn't sleepy - just weepy...so yes - best to avoid (really wish now I hadn't bought 5 kgs of them   

A friend just mentioned that her Mother has an almost identical reaction to parsnips which are related to carrots (flaking weeping patch/es of skin, but on her hands not face) & I was  reading that carrots can even cause problems with epilepsy...& then there is also the cross reaction to latex, as well as birch family - most of which I have problems with

Wonder what carrots were crossed with, to make them orange, instead of the original purple? Mind you my reaction may have been worse then, considering that usually the darker the veg/fruit, the higher the salicylates

Oh wow, weepy, too, eh? That sounds pretty bad. I have never heard of such a reaction to carrots and related veggies. Was the original carrot purple? How interesting!!! So does it mean it is actually a "night-shade vegetable"  ?

Hmmm, yeah that may not have helped...vinegar as well as a few other things??!! Here you go - original recipe =  vinegar, molasses, sugar, anchovies, water, onions, salt, garlic, tamarind concentrate, cloves, natural flavourings and chili pepper extract...
Yep that would have added to the effect of the carrots But it was only a splash, in a meal to serve 3, as there was hardly any left 'cos it was a very old bottle, (we never use it these days) & husband, who has a much more sensitive stomach was not sent to the bathroom like I was

Sorry to spoil your fun but worcestershire sauce apparently contains MSG natural flavourings , as Victoria was alluding to, white rice if not rinsed very well can contain corn, as does catnip, and possible most stock cubes anyway. anything that's highly processed or heated for a long times frees up the glutamate.

there is also more glutamate in meat that in a carrot;)

Poor old carrots get some stick

I was thinking of carrots earlier, thinking of putting them in a salad or eating just raw as I did a lot last year.  I just don't *like* carrots that much.  If I'm going to eat an orange vegetable I would prefer a sweet potato.  sigh.

I find them a struggle to eat too, that's why I hide a half in my daily salad.

I haven't managed to eat a raw sweet potato as yet, do you do that, in fact i'll start a thread on that, except i have little enough time as it is lol

Beleive me it wasn't fun!!! But fair enough comments Btw carrots are however medium on the salicyalte list but very good point about glutamate   & thanks for posting that & the corn connection to white rice!!! I missed where Victoria mentioned that?
Maybe my problem was more tied up with that dash of worcestershire sauce after all Btw I never use stockcubes & until Saturday hadn't touched worces sauce for years

Worchershire contains corn syrup, anchovies, soysauce, and tamarind among other things. Too bad because I really love it.

That's the recipe in the USA anyway. It might be different in OZ.
