Whenever rosacea triggers come up, invariably rosacea diet triggers are discussed. Usually your dermatologist will parrot the NRS trigger list and mention avoiding 'spicy food' or 'wine.' [1] Since rosacea diet triggers invariably come up by these rosacea authorities, is there some sort of nutritional deficiency in rosaceans? There is much debate and controversy regarding this subject, but you may not be aware of this discussion and want to learn more. [2] What the NRS rosacea trigger list omits is that carbohydrate and sugar are in fact just as valid a rosacea trigger as any on the NRS 'official' rosacea trigger list. [3]


Liver, Yogurt, Sour Cream, Cheese, Eggplant, and Spinach

What is really interesting is how the NRS lists "Liver, Yogurt, Sour Cream, Cheese, Eggplant, and Spinach" as rosacea triggers. [4] Most rosaceans are quite surprised when learning that these foods are listed on the NRS rosacea trigger list. Why do you think these foods are listed? 


There is a controversy that usually comes up when discussing carbohydrate and sugar as rosacea triggers since the RRDi is the only non profit organization for rosacea that lists these two foods as rosacea diet triggers on its official list. [5] Usually, uninformed rosaceans will argue that carbohydrate is essential for humans which is simply not true. [6] While rosaceans can tolerate some carbohydrate/sugar the overwhelming anecdotal evidence is that these in two foods are rosacea diet triggers. [7] The controversy gets even more heated since the ones who are passionate about this subject are not aware of sugar's addictiveness. [8] 


There is a lot more information to investigate on rosacea diet triggers and to learn more why not subscribe as a RRDi member for one month and see for yourself how much you can learn. [9]
