Generally speaking, its safe. I can't remember the name of the jug i've been using. I'll look and post in a bit.

I only say that because i saw someone once claiming that it was cc'd by soy or something. Of all the brands i've tried, i've never had an issue.

I buy a local honey at the grocery.   If you bought something from local farms, that should take care of if it is made in India.

I use rices lucky clover honey. It is raw and unfiltered. I buy a five lb jug for i think less then twenty dollars at sams club.

It has been tested as a "true" honey. Its explained on their website.

It has a better flavor than some others i've tried. I go through quite a bit of it.

I have had problems with all sorts of honeys but did well with Volcano Island honey.  It is very expensive though, so if you can find another one, that would be better.  They have also just changed ownership and I don't know what the new owners might change about the process.  The former owners had some descriptions on their site about what they do to not have to use some of the methods that are usually used that might be why I had problems. 

 

Even though this is the super sensitive section I will comment that I am extremely sensitive and honey is considered gluten free for typical celiacs.

I commented because she seemed to be less worried about debating if honey would have gluten in it and more worried it was junk from India that was pretending to be honey.

The mall has some honey:

India junk? explain please... :wacko:

 

From the article she posted

 

"Food Safety News decided to test honey sold in various outlets after its earlier investigation found U.S. groceries flooded with Indian honey banned in Europe as unsafe because of contamination with antibiotics, heavy metal and a total lack of pollen which prevented tracking its origin."

This whole thread has really grossed me out.  I will look at honey with a new perspective from now on. :huh:

 

Do you buy honey that has been so purified, that it's not even be considered "honey".  Or honey with all sorts  of junk in it....hive, bee parts, etc. ?  And banned imported "honey"?

 

Guess I'll stick to my local bee farmer from now on.

So then my honey should be good? http://www.riceshoney.com/

 

Looks local to me.  The article listed some brands that were problematic, if I remember.

 

I don't even think this really had anything to do with gluten.  Its sort fo the honey equivalent to meat red slime stuff. It doesn't contain gluten but its gross and not what you thought you were buying.

Kareng, my comment wasn't a reflection on you at all.  I wanted people who didn't notice that this was the super sensitive section to know that they don't have to worry about honey.  It is so easy to click on new topics and not notice that you are in the super sensitive section.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
