Lesson Learned: ALWAYS Check Food and Supplement Labels

I learned this lesson the hard way. When you have food allergies, you always need to check the ingredients on the label every time you buy something, even if you've bought it before and it previously didn't have any allergens in it.

I thought I had been doing everything right - for the past 8 months, ever since I found out I'm allergic to dairy, egg whites, and also gluten-intolerant, I had completely eliminated these culprits from my diet. Or so I thought.

The other day when I went to buy some multivitamins at the health food store because I was nearly out, I could not find the ones I normally buy. In their place were something similar, but they were labeled "Ultimate Vegetarian Multi" (instead of "Ultimate One"). I looked at the label and the vitamin and mineral content looked exactly like what I had bought before and was currently using at home; I couldn't immediately see any differences.
