Cottage Cheese?
0

8 posts in this topic

Without thinking, I grabbed a big spoonful of cottage cheese from company cafeteria.  Has anyone heard of a cottage cheese with gluten?  I'd love to eat it (already ate a spoonful before I remembered "that was dumb")  I've only been gluten-free (for celiac) about six weeks.  i think it's 1% or 2% if that helps.

 

Thanks.

Never seen gluten in plain cottage cheese. Wouldn't eat off a cafeteria/ salad bar. That is likely to be cc'd when people drop their roll and pick it out or use the spoon from the croutons in something else, etc. it would be safest for you, especially in the first few months, to bring your own food. After you have had time to heal, you can take the chance of eating there.

Thanks - just to follow up, the cottage cheese is quite far from everything else, so it seemed highly unlikely, but yes - you are right.  The cafeteria manager called me back and read me the ingredients, so I feel a bit better about it. Funny, I only got it to supplement the lunch I did bring!

 

I'm trying to set up a meeting with our cafeteria management to see what we can do to get me (and possibly others) some options.

 

Thanks again.

There are many, many possible additives. Most are gluten-free. I have never seen cottage cheese that had added gluten. CC is the concern here from the salad bar.

I am a college student and have to eat from the buffet and salad bar in the dining halls. Does this mean that I will constantly be exposed to gluten regardless of what I eat?

Probably.

You need to take your diagnosis ( get a note from your doctor) and go to the Student Disabilities office and insist on safe food if you must pay for it.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
