Dear Destry
If you suffer from gluten allergy then you can use buckwheat, millet, maize meal, and rice. The soya allergy is not affected if you eat plain porridges. Check on every label for wheat and soya. To read more about allergies click on ‘Diet' and 'Allergy & intolerance'. You can also contact the Allergy Association by visiting their Website at: to find out more about wheat and soya allergies.
