If you ever see such an offer avoid it. Keep your own food diary listing daily intake cross referenced with any symptoms. Do an exclusion for a week or two then re-introduce the item and random associations are eliminated. If the symptom recurs avoid it. There are blood test that can suggest things to avoid & items that are a severe risk. Beyond that, consumer beware. If it sounds too good, it is.
