The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 18

I have been reading the message board for some time, and have been following the diet, but have a question. If a person has a wheat allergy or wheat sensitivity, can they still eat sprouted wheat products? I hope that this is not too silly of a question - it is my understanding that the sprouting takes away some of the offensive behavior of the wheat, but I am curious about this.
I am a type B+ and have been using sprouted wheat products when I can find them. I recently read that wheat sensitivity may cause fluid retention and sometimes weight gain. I have not been tested for wheat allergy and do not have any negative symptoms when I eat it that I have noticed, but I do have pollen allergies during the year.
Since trying to avoid wheat products, I was amazed at how many products have it as an additive. It is almost as bad as "high fructose corn syrup"! I went to buy chili seasoning this weekend and finally found one that was just spices - most of the major brands had wheat powder added.
