Lisa16 added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & Medicationsgluten-free Status Of Indigo Wild (Zum) ProductsI got an email from Indigo wild today (makers of zum soaps, laundry detergent, personal hygiene products,etc.) about the gluten-free status of their products.
They tell me that everything except the oatmeal soap and all of their lotions is gluten free. In addition, they confirmed that their vitamin e comes from a gluten free source.
Whole Foods carries their soaps.

Lisa16 added a topic in Other Food Intolerance and Leaky Gut IssuesUdi's Mystery-- Oh No! Help!I recently discovered the wonder of Udi's breads. I bought them (both kinds-- but mostly the white b/c the whole grain one kept selling out and I only got one loaf of that)and I ate it for several days as toast in the morning and a sandwich to take to work.
However, I developed progressively worse GERDS symptoms that completely and instantly disappeared when I withdrew the bread (Oh Man! Just when I found something really good too!) I would have acidic burping, some stinky gas and stomach pain. This was not a typical gluten reaction-- I hasten to add. We are not talking multiple bouts of D. But something in this "gets" me.
Soplease let me know what are the likely culprit(s) from the list of ingredients?
I know am allergic to sulfites/sulfates (nearly impossible to avoid completely, though), nitrates, msg and pistachios and casein intolerant.
Ingredients (white bread):
brown rice flour
sugar-- *to this point, I believe we are okay.
baking powder (sodium bicarbonate, cornstarch, calcium sulfate,monocalcium phosphate)
ascorbic acid (microcrystaline cellulose, corn starch)
Thank you in advance! This episode caused many sleepless night and I feel like if I can figure it out, I can solve a big piece of the non-gluten sensitivity puzzle for me.
