Since I have discovered multiple allergies, I am so much more aware of what I feel when I eat food. One thing I have noticed is that foods with multiple gums seem to make me feel worse. Even though these probably won't kill me, why eat them?

Have you noticed the gums added to all sorts of foods? Do you think they affect the way you feel after eating them? Is your plain yogurt creamy enough or do you feel the need for a gum to make it creamier?
