Today's report by the USDA affirms that no genetically modified wheat is in commerce and that the commercial seed and grain supply does not contain genetically modified wheat. This finding is supported by extensive testing by USDA, state universities, Monsanto and others.

We're not aware of many members on here having Coeliac Disease and having severe allergies that cause Anaphylactic shock.
As you're probably aware Coeliac Disease is classified as an auto-immune disease not an allergy, (although it's often referred to in the press as one which can be confusing). For us Coeliac's our immune systems perceive gluten (in wheat, rye, and barley) as a threat and attack it and in doing so cause the variety of reactions we experience if we get 'glutened'. Not to mention putting us at a higher risk of other auto-immune diseases (Thyroid, Diabetes, Pernicious Anemia, Rheumatoid Arthritis) and associated problems like Osteoporosis.
Anaphylactic shock occurs if your body's immune system overreacts in response to a particular substance (allergen) that you have been exposed to before.
Common Allergens that can cause Anaphylactic shock are:
[*so some Coeliacs may also experience this although this is rare]
* soy and
* sesame seeds
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
8 tablespoons unsalted butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup peanut or almond butter (use almond butter for Paleo)
1/8 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
2 cups chopped nuts (pecans, almond, cashews, etc.)
