So I've been a vegetarian for a few months now (maybe four.) I Bought some Beanzyme since I haven't quite adapted yet and just read that it is made with food grade mold. I'm allergic to penicillin and other med derived from mold. Does anyone think this is an issue? (I've never had a problem with cheese or blue cheese...if that makes a difference.)

That's a hard question to answer.<br><br>
If you look at the Beanzyme as a med, and you're allergic to mold-made meds, then it would be an issue. If it were me, it would depend on the type of reaction I could get. I have only one food allergy, pineapple, and its only temporarily painful... just a mild pain reaction that goes away in a few hours with no major histamine response. If that were like the mold, I'd say just try it and see.<br><br>
But, if the allergy is such that you would need to go to the doctor if you had a reaction, or anything involving breathing issues, then I'd stay on the side of caution and just try something else. Give the Beanzyme to a gassy relative.

Haha, yeah, I actually have a friend who just started going veg and had the same situation as me- "is my body ever going to get used to all the beans???" So, maybe I'll send them his way. My penicillin allergy is a bit of a mystery since I haven't taken it since I was little and discovered that I was allergic. I know then all it did was give me a bad case of hives, so nothing to get too worked up about i guess, unless over the last 20 or so years things have changed in my body. Maybe on a weekend if I feel like trying it I'll give it a shot...
