To make things less daunting, I would start with these colours:
Colours - artificial
110 Sunset yellow FCF
124 Ponceau 4R
129 Allura red AC
133 Brilliant blue FCF
142 Food green S
151 Brilliant black BN
155 Brown HT
Colour - natural
160b Annatto extracts
Plus flavour enhancers (600 numbers). They are in so, so many packaged savoury foods from stock cubes, to flavoured chips, crackers and popcorn, pasta and cooking sauces, 2 minutes noodles and pasta-with-sauce packets, seasoning sachets, gravies, sausage rolls and pies, fish fingers etc.
Don't trust if the packet says "no MSG" on the front, only one 600 number is MSG, the others still cause reactions. There are still heaps of packet choices that do not have these, it varies from brand and even variety within a brand - eg. Pizza and Savoury shapes have no 600s, every other Shape and In-a-Biscuit have them.
Give it a few weeks of total elimination, especially as your DS is young. Now DD is older and bigger, her body can deal with a little bit with no reaction (eg. 4-5 flavoured corn chips) whereas at 3 that would have been enough to set her off.
Then, if you're not having any success, move on to eliminating artificial flavours and preservatives.

Back to my own kids, I've just had two nights from hell with 19mo DS and I assumed he'd developed another ear infection. Was at the doctors this morning and he got a clean bill of health.
I did change his bread though, as I'm trying him on a low-fibre diet. I checked the label for 'preservatives' but didn't realise vinegar could be a problem until I was reading a link from this thread.
