Food colouring can be used to help people with arthritis and other ailments.
Its used to improve the appearance of their skin, reduce their pain and help them manage their weight.
Food colouring has been used to treat asthma, diabetes and depression.
Its also used to colour clothes and other materials.
However, people with food allergies or sensitivities are at greater risk of developing the condition.
Dr Ian Smith, a dietitian at Melbourne’s Royal Melbourne Hospital, said the best way to control your food allergy was to get a gluten free diet.
“If you don’t have a gluten problem, it’s very easy to use this as a mask to try and get rid of the gluten,” he said.
“The best way is to go and get a meal with gluten free options and then see if you get relief.”
You can take a look at what’s going on in your gut, and if you’ve been eating gluten and have sensitivities, that can help you manage it better.
“It might be an interesting way of getting around the gluten allergy issue.”
Dr Smith said a diet of gluten free pasta or breads was the most popular choice for people with gluten allergies.
“They might have gluten intolerance, so if they’re eating a gluten-free pasta, that’s probably the way they should go.”
But if they’ve had a wheat-based food for a while, they might be better off on a wheat based food.
