I'm amazed anyone ever thought otherwise. Even in the Biblical text it is quite clearly an allegorical symbolism of remembrance. Nowhere does it say it is literally 'the body of Christ'

Quite right. He said, "Eat this in remembrance of me." I suspect that if he wanted to be taken literally he would have offered up his liver or a piece of his flank steak instead of a piece of bread.
