I had some coffee (2 cups) this am and for lunch, I took my Mother who is not well, can hardly get around and my neice who was down from Portland, Or. She is flying back tonight at 8PM. We went to a Mexican Restaurant called "El Torrito " and there is only one menu item that is wheat and gluten free. I asked a waitress if there were any gluten free items, and she said one of her co-workers mom is also a celiac and eats the same thing and never a problem. Well she was right I did not have a problem with anything. Enchiladas Rancheros , that is all I have eaten today. may a cup of coffee in a bit. and a baked potatoe, for dinner
Its been awhile since I have on. Well I have gained about 30 lbs since being Dx in Aug, 2006. I used to be in size 0 to 3 and now I hate what i look like. I weigh approx. 140 and would like to lose about 10 or 15 lbs. People say I look good and healthy, which I like but i don't like the flab. Wow I never ever had flab before, and I'm not liking it. So can I join all of you ?
I have been gluten free since Aug 2006, but I wonder sometimes when my stomach sticks out (bloated) slight Big D you know just a little loose. Maybe there is something I am missing. Some days are great then I some are bad. Can we really ever be healed ? I personally don't think so, but maybe. My body always feels bad somewhere. I have 4 surgeries on my right shoulder (may 2007) this year was the last and I still can't raise my arm. So this also makes me feel we never can heal. Just wanted to ad my 2 cents worth.
Any one know about LA CHOY brand teraki and soy sauce, There is no wheat or gluten listed and I also called and the recording say that they follow all rules and would list if it had any of the eight allergens in it.
Anyway I have used it and had no problems. Thought you would like to know
hI ANGEL 42 You are not alone. I get that way also. I have been gluten free since Aug. I have had a few glutenings and feel that way. I feel as if in a fog, at times anyway even dropping things. It gets better with time I hope.
Yesterday I received an answer from AMY'S KITCHEN. Sorry that it is long.
Thank you for the time you spent with me discussing the reaction experience after consuming Amys Kitchen
The bottom line was that they had there product tested and they say there was NO DETECTABLE LEVEL OF GLUTEN in the product selected for testing.
While we did not find gluten in the product, will continue to monitor this product and have set up an ALERT PROCESS THROUGH THE CONSUMER SERVICES DATABASE SO THAT THEY CAN RESPOND QUICKLY IF THEY GET A RELATED CALL FROM ANOTHER CONSUMER.
Amys kitchen response
They say Amy's kitchen is dedicated to the manufacture of products that are delicious, nutriousand safe to consume. They go on to say that they hope I will continue to purchase Amy's Kitchen products in the future. They sent me two free coupons for Amy's Products.
They finish by saying that,
As you know Amy's Kitchen is a family business. We truly appreciate hearing from our customers especially when there might be problems. Consumer comments prompt us to check our systems to make sure proceders are being followed and to take corrective action if anything is amiss. Again thanks for your concern and tim.
University of Neb
They alo sent me a copy of the report that they received from UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA
Bottom line CHEESE ENCHILADA #LOT Loi156B "BLD" below the limit of detection,
The lower limit of detection for the R-Biopharm RIDASCREEN Fast Gladin is 10 parts per million (ppm) gluten. Amounts below this level cannot be reliably detected in this assay. The R-Biopharm RIDASCREEN FAST Gliadin is equally cross reactive with gliadin/ gluten for wheat, ryem and barley. One ppm is equal to one milligram of gluten per lilogram of sample product
They go on to say IMPORTANT NOTICE:. If the possible source of allgeren contamination in your samples is from fermaentation, or consists of fermented or hydrolyzed materials, current methods cannot measures allergen levels appropriatelyinthese cases. This can result in a severe underestimate of the allergen content of your samples.
In these special cases, a BLD reasing may be indicated but there still could be enough allergenic residues left over to be capable of causing and allergic reaction.
NO responsability at all i would assume, on Amy's Kitchens part.
I also love bananas with a little lactose free milk and a little sugar. yummy or just a plain banana.
I like apples only peeled ones. strawberrys with whip cream and maybe cheesecake from Philadelpia. with whip cream nightly for some reason ohhhh yaaaa
