I react differently but its foods that aren't totally baked that bother me the most, with immediate "I can't breathe" reactions, this includes things like bagels and pizza crust. But I NEVER eat any of these, with a situation like "I could die" I don't mess with temptation.
The thing I react strongest to is oats. I have an almost immediate reaction in my gall bladder when I eat something with oats in it. And that is with a very small amount such as when my dad added 1 tsp of oat trim to a loaf of gluten free bread. Wheat always has a delay for me and I will not know that I have a problem until the next morning when I wake up with an upsit stomach and the runs and then have problems for about five days after that. Before I went on my gluten free diet I thought I was reacting to spicy and rich foods beacuse I would have the most problems after eating those. I ate very bland food for several years because I was trying to avoid the pain. It was interesting to find out that the spice and richness was not what caused the problems but because I had a weekend system that is what my body choose to react to.
Are there certain foods that produce a stronger reaction than others? I have found that if I slip (and I have been slipping lately) and I eat bread, I instantly have issues with my gallbladder. A lot of foods bother me, but bread gets to me the worst every time. And of course, bread IS my most favorite food.
Haven't tried any gluten-free yet, but I will sometime soon.
Good luck to everyone!!
