Stella: Soy often has sulfites, and I've reacted to most of the products I've tried.
I became lactose intolerant as an adult for sure, maybe had a problem with sulfites as a baby, since I didn't tolerate formulae well - lots of dextrose in them back then.
I have no problem with milk proteins, so I add a tsp of whey to my coffee, oatmeal ... It's a protein, quite different from lactose, a sugar!
Snacks - I don't really recommend eating snacks, but Cheez-It crackers, at least the regular ones, are pretty low in sulfite. Put them on top of stuff to add cheese flavor instead of high sulfite cheese.
rmtmoom: Doesn't sound quite right for a sulfite intolerance. You sound very knowledgeable. I'd guess you are following with a good doctor. Avoiding processed foods is a good route for all of us. At least we know what's in our diets.
Instead of onions and garlic I use single spices in moderation - tiny pinch! - never any mixed spices! Fresh is best, but dried ones are OK. Pepper has sulfite! I don't use much salt, don't need it with the right spice! (except beef) My mom made up a real neat chart. It's taped inside my cupboard. Here's part of it:
Basil - chicken and tomato soups, beef, pork, lamb, chicken,green beans, tomatoes, squash.
Dill - carrots, cauliflower, peas, potatoes, cottage cheese, chicken, rice dishes, tomato soup.
Marjoram - avocado, chicken and potato soup, burgers, beef, pork, lamb, fish fillets, zucchini.
Oregano - vegetable juice, stews, burgers, chicken, boiled eggs, broiled seafood, broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes.
Rosemary - chicken, pea, spinach soups, beef, game, poultry, scrambled eggs, fish, lentils, peas.
Sage - chowders, chicken and bland cream soups, cold roast beef, pork, lamb, veal, chicken, turkey, poultry, fish fillets, Brussels sprouts, Lima beans, squash, tomatoes.
Thyme - gumbo, borsch, roast, poultry stuffing, scrambled eggs, tuna,chicken salad, carrots, potatoes.
