I also drank some that a friend introduced as "made in Canada" without the usual processing -- whatever that meant, but it did have a strange, sweet aroma and went down easy, but gave me a head bash and landed me in the ER.

I am not allergic to many things: shrimp -- but i just found out that they spray shrimp and seafood with sulfites so maybe people are actually allergic to the sulfites and not the seafood.
> take care
