Of course no one should eat prepared foods with Mono and Diglycerides, but is there any chance that Mono and Diglycerides could contain any nightshades? I'm trying really hard to try nightshade free for 2 months and don't want hidden nightshades to mess me up

I imagine it is the alkaloids in nightshades you are trying to eliminate. Mono and di-glycerides are fatty acids attached to a carbon backbone. They are as such, chemically dissimilar to nightshade (or any other for that matter) alkaloid.
Short answer: they're fine for your situation
