Hi,I am an observant Jewish fellow, recently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on what sort of foods can cause trouble, and have been making an effort to stay away from the bad stuff.Passover is coming up in a few weeks, and that holiday involves eating some interesting foods. This will be my first Passover with Crohn’s, so I was hoping some of you can help keep me out of trouble by sharing your experiences.The foods in question are:Matzah – Has Matzah given anyone trouble? Is “machine made” better than “hand made”? Is Egg Matzah better than regular Matzah? I know that certain breads (whole grain, rye with seeds, bran) can cause trouble, but have not heard anything about the pros and cons of Matzah.Grape Juice – I will need to drink four cups of grape juice (I do not get along well with wine) for two nights in a row. Will that mess me up? Is white grape juice better than purple grape juice?Charoset – With all that fruit and nuts, I think I’m definitely going to limit the amount I eat.Macaroons – I cannot stand the taste of macaroons, but I saw an odd article about the effects of Coconut Macaroons on Crohn’s. Is there any truth to those rumors?Thank you for your help,Jay
