Interesting. It's all about lectins.

I do seem to have a mild reaction to dark chocolate.
Usually whenever I've tried alternative grains, e.g. rye, buckwheat, quinoa, corn, which I didn't eat during childhood (I hated cornflakes), I've found the bloating and other symptoms have been even worse than they were with wheat. I seem to be OK with tapioca, and I ate a bit of that in school dinner puddings as a child. (I know you said to mention reactions to these foods other than the grains, but I think the distinction I've made is important.)
I do eat a lot of beta-casein in goat's/sheeps cheese. I seem to be OK with that. But not alpha-casein. My energy is not variable most of the time - it is high.
