Q: Recently I've seen labels stating that a product has been processed in a facility that also process nuts, eggs, milk, and shellfish. I assume that such equipment is sterilized and cleaned before another product is run through the machines or conveyors. But does anybody really know how uncontaminated vegan products are that are made in such facilities?
Both what we eat and how we eat can affect our digestive response.
Q: Is there a reason that new vegans experience gas, and is there a solution? Most information about gas focuses on beans, but I've found that it is the uptake of vegetables and fruits that is the problem.
Potlucks can be hazardous in terms of foodborne pathogens and allergens.
Q: Please address a particular situation my family and I often encounter: the omnivore potluck. Yes, we do bring one or more vegan dishes for ourselves and to share. However, is there any tactful way to ask the proverbial question: "Is there meat in this dish?"
