tonight realized the grated cheese i've been eating at breakfast every day for three months contains starch. Got to read those labels!

You're not the first snappy! It can take several months for people to weed out hidden illegals. Starch is in shredded and sliced cheeses so that it doesn't clump/stick to each other. Starch is in a lot of spices for the same reason. Chicken and turkey may be injected with broths and sugars, tuna may be canned in broth/soy, supplements may have illegals in the inactive ingredients. It's tough to figure out what's legal sometimes!
