The White Spot's Triple-O recipe maybe SECRET, but it does have one ingredient: EGGS
White Spot does offer A Gluten Free Menu, but no Common allergen "menu" like Hugo's
There were contributing factors to discovering my "allergies" to eggs (turned out allergy is the wrong word). Narrowing of the field was assisted by my realizing two things: The disastrous "side effects" every two weeks, within three hours of eating out ..... sometimes more often within two weeks AND the irregularity, the spontaneous combustion, was a debilitating factor especially in public spaces. "Excuse me, I have to GO!"
With help from the spouse, desperation on both our parts, and I, never having believed in the benefits of naturopaths, I WAS ushered into the office of a Naturopath in Vancouver, since returned to Kamloops, lucky Kamloopians. Sincerely!!!! If I ever have another problem like this, Kamloops is where I'm going to.
The Naturopath, during the first visit that lasted ONE hour, posed this question:
My Answer: Hmmmmmm. smell like, ....... (couldn't quite put my finger on it, for five minutes ... )
Me: Chilliwack?????? YES!!!
Naturopath: UNDIGESTED food!!!
But that wasn't the answer, it was the beginning of discovery, and I was still "enjoying" a White Spot's (Secret) Triple "O's recipe with cheese hamburger, with fries, and coffee every other OTHER five weeks.
Digesting of the food was being worked on, with success. Weeding out the possibilities of other "allergies" was becoming more and more difficult to ascertain.
The every other two weeks brunch of Bacon and Eggs with two pieces of toast was suspect. Eliminated the Bacon. Went from Fried Eggs to Poached. Changed the "butter" already spread on the Toast by the cook, to BUTTER my own ....... No change. Started back to eating Bacon, with poached eggs, no toast (wheat). Almost gave up eating.
Then the breakthrough, blood was taken two weeks earlier with the results from the test being delivered by Meridian Valley Lab three days AFTER CBC did this report on food allergies (wrong name). There wasn't an inkling of CBC coming out with their report:
Looking at the CBC report, all that I can ascertain is that they didn't take ENOUGH blood.Food allergy tests can be misused, doctor warns

A Toronto doctor is warning people about testing to determine whether a person has allergies, sensitivities or intolerance to certain foods. Dr. Elana Lavine of Humber River Regional Hospital says some of these tests, which can cost hundreds of dollars, can be misused and misinterpreted. Writing in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, Lavine says in some cases, readings are interpreted to mean an intolerance to a food or foods when in fact the reverse is actually true. ...... SNIP
..... The tests, which can cost hundreds of dollars, look for an antibody reaction to a whole range of foods. And when they find a response with an antibody known as immunoglobulin G, or IgG, they characterize that result as unhealthy, suggesting the existence of either a food allergy, an intolerance or a food “sensitivity.” SNIP

Yoho National Park for ten days, lost eight pounds, still hovering at 162....... because of Pete, one of six trail clearing employees who cover Parks Canada's: Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yoho trail system. Pete either lied, intentionally, or he can't count pass 101 ........ switchbacks ..... going UP from Emerald Lake through pristine old growth forest (untouched by CPR Railway logging crews of the late 1800s (too Steep)) to Burgess Pass, almost.
It's 117 Petey!
