I had the khao deng ruby red rice and it got me :/ on their website it says everything is gluten free except one of their chocolates, because their chocolate maker uses an ingredient that can come from either corn or gluten.  But I thought that would be so insignificant that it wouldn't matter because their products come from different places, it's just they are all packaged by Alter Eco.  Perhaps the contamination came from where the rice itself is harvested, processed, etc in Thailand.  I don't really know.  Anyways, has anyone else had a reaction to their products?

Yes.  what helps me is to sort through my grains and remove anything that looks like it could be a gluten grain.  Then I wash them by shaking them in a jar with some liquid dish soap for few cycles.  I was surprised at the color of the water that washes out.  If not gluten, I am certainly removing a lot of dirt.  Then I rinse very well.  I haven't had good luck finding anything that doesn't get me without this treatment.  That is, except for the buckwheat I grew in my garden last summer.  I hope that you feel better soon.

Do you find that this process works for any type and brand of grains so that you can eat them, say for instance a generic bag of rice from Target, or are there still only certain brands that you can handle even with washing?  Also thanks for the well wishes.  I'll be ok in a few days <_<

I am really sensitive.  I take the most gluten-free whole grains possible and then wash.  Even then I'd rather just eat what I can grow because I can still get glutened.  At this point I would go hungry a lot without some alternatives.  Someone less sensitive wouldn't have to be as particular.
