The Feingold and Failsafe Diet are two distinct types of elimination diets which are low in Phenols and Salicylates - chemical compounds found in specific foods which can be hard to break down resulting in a variety of behavioral, emotional, and physical symptoms. Some kids do great on the Feingold Diet while others need a more comprehensive and fine-tuned diet like Failsafe.
The Failsafe Diet trumps over the Feingold Diet since it completely eliminates all foods containing medium or high levels of salicylates, not just 80% of them. In addition, Failsafe removes foods high in amines and glutamate which have commonly found to be problematic in kids who have salicylate issues.
