DD has multiple food allergies including Rapeseed oil. E442 is derived from rapeseed oil and used as a vegetable fat/emulsifier in foods like chocolate.

DD usually has kinnerton and i was hoping to try her on cadbury's twirl but not sure as it contains E442.

She is allergic to soya but is ok with soya lecithin so would E442 be the same?

Does anyone know about these sorts of food additives which come under vegetable fats?

Many thanks.

have just started replacing my normal olive oil with rapeseed oil for cooking and my coeliac dd and my gluten intolerant self and other dd have all suffered gluten type symptoms ( bloating , gas and d). Has anyone else suffered similarly?
