I have known for a long time that the sugars in fruit and wine are triggers for me, but I have recently discovered that wheat is also one of my big rosacea triggers. I experienced a substantial reduction in flare-ups and overall general redness when I removed grains and sugars from my diet. Just recently, while on vacation, I overdid it on biscuits, cookies, etc. and it took several days before I was back to normal. Those biscuits were definitely not worth the trouble!
