Travelling to Italy and worried about possibility of Lupin reaction
Hi, we are off to Rome for 2 weeks in June. Have just read some pretty disturbing articles regarding the prevalent use of lupin flour in Italy for bread and pasta. Currently we are living in Singapore and our allergist cannot test for lupin as we cannot source any. I have contacted the Australian Lupin board but they have refused to send me a sample when I explained why I needed it (before this they seemed more than willing - go figure!) Just wondering if anyone who has travelled to Italy (with a severe nut allergy)has reacted to bread or pasta. We chose to go to Rome as we were looking forward to our son have an enjoyable food experience (he loves pasta and bread).
