Any Way To Know If This Is A 'glutening'?

Few options for me today at company cafeteria, so I opted for a baked potato with a pat of butter (seemed like a safe 'self contained' option) and a small amount of parmesan, peas, carrots and cucumbers.  Literally within minutes I had a rumbling stomach.  Very odd for me, but I've only been gluten-free about a month.  I was very careful to choose spoonfuls that seemed non-cc'd and have successfully done this many times.

 

I know many of you will tell me never to eat from salad bars, but I'd really like to know if there's any way to tell if this was a reaction to gluten or to something else.

 

Thanks.

I'd say gluten. You just don't know who has done what at the salad stations. Also, did you get the potato opened or did you do it yourself?

You will eventually figure it out. I know it's confusing...but eventually it will make itself clear.

I have not intentionally eaten gluten in almost 2 years. But if weird things happen within 24 hours of eating out, repeatedly, even when you order gluten-free....well, you start to learn the signs.

And don't eat off the salad bar again like that. You can't "see" gluten cc unless its a crouton, etc. but it's still there. I hate ordering salad out...I think it's harder to screen because the restaurants assume it's safe.

Thanks.  I've been meaning to have a sit down with HR and the cafeteria manager to make sure there are options for me, so I guess I'd better find the time.  As for the potato, I opened it myself, which is why I thought it would be safe!

It's always hard to know, or recognize a glutening in the beginning.  Salad are hard to digest. Cross contamination could be an issue.  Dairy can be problematic.  Or, maybe you are not healed.   And sometimes, we just never know.

 

Sorry, I'm not too much help. :rolleyes:

 

Not knowing your work environment...could you bring in a personal microwave?

Unfortunately we learn our glutening reactions by experience :rolleyes:
