Tested a batch of cherry tomatoes and they showed some sign of starch.
But when i tested some Tomato purée it turned completely black!
My beloved Heinz tomato ketchup also shows signs of starches with the iodine test.

Is tomatoes a no go, on the NSD or do your just test each one and hope for the best?

They were off limits for me for years. I now eat them in moderation and have no issues.

Hello, boz:

We each tolerate trace starches at different levels. Tomatoes only have a trace amount of starches and there is no clear test outside of seeing how we do on them. To begin NSD it is always best to begin with the most strict regimen and add back the foods that are suspect/very low first.

Regret I was not a very good model because I began taking antibiotics early in my NSD experience, but I don't think I reacted to tomatoes before starting on antibiotics.

HEALTH,
John

Ok, tomatoes is out for me for the moment, just incase.

Anyone know of brands of hot sauces that's starch free? I really miss my sriracha frown
I've tested a bunch of hot sauces, but they all react to the iodine test, even though there's no starches on the ingredients list.

Guess i'm gonna have to cook up my own hot sauce.

I still have problem with tomatoes too.

In regards to hot sauces, I thought all spices were inherently starchy. As others have indicated, everyone has a different tolerance, and unfortunately, my tolerances is still nil.

Good luck!

I did fine early on with red Tabasco sauce, but for some reason it was the only one.

Did the iodine test on regular tabasco, and it went pretty black frown
Even though the only ingredients Pepper, Vinegar and Salt.

So i guess it's no hot sauces for me then.
Are plain chilli pepperes starchy?

Yep tomato is very very safe for me. And yes it reacts to iodine.

Tomato is one of the few examples of times when the iodine test is misleading. It isn't a quantitative test. Call it a "false positive" reaction.

The only time I recall reacting to tomato is when I had cooked a lot of Bolognese - the beef mince, tomato, and whatever else I added made me stuff but only for a few hours. Nothing like a normal starch reaction which lasts days.
