Cross Contamination - The Bane Of My Life!
0

27 posts in this topic

So, I'm nearly 8 months gluten-free.....and I am STILL finding new ways to gluten myself, grrrrrr!

 

My question is: if I have been (unknowingly), soaking and cooking CC'd dried beans (I know this for sure, now...after many mysterious glutenings and finding they are packed on the same lines as gluten products inc. wheat flour!) in my slow cooker, which has a metal, non-stick pot......is the pot now glutening me? (I bought this after going gluten free, so thought it was gluten-free).

 

I'm sitting here with champion brain-fog and a painful, growing, noisy stomach after eating left-over "super-safe" beef stew (only fresh carrots, celery, shin beef, herbs from my garden, homemade chicken stock from carcass) for breakfast, that was cooked in my slow cooker - I felt clear before eating it........moan moan, I'm sick of this!

The chicken stock ( home made or not ) would get me . For some reason I can tolerate turkey but not chicken .

 

 

Give your slow cooker  a good cleaning and it should be fine

Sigh,  Do you think it is possible you are having random withdrawal symptoms?  In the beginning of my diet experience, I couldn't always figure it out.  Also, after l year sometimes I really can't be sure what I am reacting to.

 

Are  there any scratches in the metal of the crock pot?

 

One other consideration,  Could you have intolerances to another food in the stew?

Hmmm, I've always thought chicken was one of my safe foods.....

And, yes, I already gave the pot a thorough clean - as far as one can with non-stick...

It took my elimination diet for me to realize that chicken was an issue . I , like you, thought it was a safe food.

My suggestion would be to eliminate chicken ( including the  broth) from your diet for a week or two and then try it again. If not a problem it will reassure you it is a  totally safe  food .

Not sure about the random withdrawal....thought I'd left that far behind.....

Yes, there are plenty of scratches on the crock pot.......

I don't think it can be more intolerances......I already have plenty! I'd purposely made the stew out of safe ingredients because of a recent glutening...(the cc'd beans), so it might be flare of symptoms from that.....but I really don't want to continue to add to the problems with contaminated cookware....OTOH it would be an expensive hassle to replace the crock pot every time I suspect cc......

Being a farmer, I know that chickens are more inclined to eat grain and turkeys like to eat bugs and grass and very little grain.  Our poultry eat wheat! .  Ours are also on pasture of grass and clover which they like.   I stay away from their feed.  I rinse them well in cold water before eating

 

I tried not eating chicken for a while and have been fine when I began eating it again.    I make chicken broth with the leftovers and do not have a problem.  Chicken is a good food; keep it in your diet if you can.  Avoid it if you must.

I agree ,,, No food should be eliminated from ones diet unless it is detrimental to ones health and well being .

I for one worked long and hard to determine  what was safe for me to eat and what was not. it is a tedious process but for some of us it  is required to regain our health .

Cross contamination is a big issue for me too.  I don't think that a tiny bit of cc from pot that cooked something with a tiny bit of cc would be an issue, but I could be wrong.  It was not my experience that scratched non stick cookware was a source of cc.  I also have had problems with chicken.  It is inconsistent with me.  Sometimes I could eat it without problems, and sometimes I could not. 

 

I am sensitive to extremely low levels of gluten and avenin.

 

I found a farmer who does a batch of corn, soy. oat and gluten free chicken each year for another customer.  I think I'll try some of that.  She also butchers them herself and explained the process to me and it sounded more humane with less cc possibilities than what happens in the big facilities. 

 

I also recommend elimination/challenge dieting.  I also don't think that you should eliminate it unless you find out that it is a problem.

Sympathies for your suffering...somehow, it seems like we largely suffer alone, doesn't it? 

 

I bought wheat-gluten test kits at $15 each, and after screwing up using the first one, read the directions more carefully.

 

I found no cross contamination of gluten in any product that "shared facilities" with a wheat product line.  So before you

give up on an important food, it may be worth a few bucks to test it, and that means you may have other sensitivities or food issues

you can discover or improve on. 

 

I tested three different rice brands from Thailand; no gluten found (wheat gluten, I mean).   Even so, I have now gotten

so doggone nervous I spend the extra few bucks a month and bought certified "gluten free" rice at my local gluten free

store.   Whole foods has been stocking more gluten free products, but my son, looking at their pricing, calls them "Whole Paycheck".

 

Now, finding where corn and corn starch is hidden...that has been a whole other difficulty, and I haven't found a test kit

for sorghum that is reasonably priced, and it's in many wheat-gluten free foods now.

if you're worried about the crock pot, they sell liners for them - that's what i use in mine - i wasn't sure about the crock, it is ceramic and we used it to cook gluten-y things before i was dx'd.  

 

i glutened myself alot in the first year, i am sure!  also, things in particular brands/certain foods were still hard to digest because my intestines were damaged (still are, i'm sure, but they feel better and better the longer i stay gluten-free)  so i kept a food journal.  even if there was not gluten in things i was eating, for some reason or another i had trouble digesting them.  also discovered a secondary sensitivity to soy <man, that stuff is EVERYWHERE - if i eat too much of it i have a 'fake' gluten reaction.  headache, neck ache, fatigue, etc not to mention 'D' - but it doesn't last as long as long as when i get glutened.  food journal is your friend when you're trying to figure out what's been getting you.  and write down everything that crosses your lips :)

If you were glutened recently (and over a period of time, since you say it took a while to figure out what was up with the beans) then it could be that you're still recovering from that. I find I have trouble with perfectly safe foods for a week or so after getting glutened. Digestive enzymes might help you out.

If it keeps up though, try not using your crock pot for a while. If that makes a difference, get a new crock pot, or a liner for it or something. If it doesn't, try an elimination diet to see if something else is bothering you.

 

(soy is the bane of my existence. even tiny amounts of that can get me. no fun)

 

good luck!

Thanks everyone, I've been reading your replies throughout the day. but couldn't muster the brain power to communicate, lol.

Feeling clear at the moment, so here goes:

dilettantesteph - I agree that an elimination diet is a good way to weed out problems....I've already done that to find the intolerances listed in my signature....and I always revert back to my basic safe-foods after a glutening. Usually that's homemade from fresh ingredients chicken and veg soup, or beef and veg stew, both slow cooked to aid digestion.

 

Mr gluten-free in Indiana - I've never seen any testing kits here in the UK.....however, I have no doubt that the dried products that I was buying from this company were cc'd. I thought I was being clever getting my dried goods in large packs, cheaply from an Asian supermarket. The companies are called "Supreme" for the beans, and "Rajah" for the spices.

Whilst I was washing the beans, several times I thought "wow, these beans are so dusty and dirty", and I have kept a food diary for the last 5 years (yeah I did it pre-gluten-free, to help me lose weight, I used to be 278 pounds, now 138!) - I thought I had a legume intolerance, but I actually was only reacting to beans from this company.....and I also know they pack flours in the same line/facilities - there is even a warning on the packet. The warning wasn't always there (I checked), and when I noticed it I thought "ah well, it only means there's a chance of cc....I'd have to be unlucky to get caught"....but I have now reacted to their cashews (twice), but not to cashews from Sainsburiys, (I love Sainsbury's labelling policies, they say they will always label their own brand products if there is any cc that is not evident from the ingredients list!!!),also kidney beans, chickpeas, red lentils, tapioca pearls, rice flour, corn meal and various spices including turmeric....also, I purposely looked for a curry powder that was gluten-free, theirs said it had besan (chickpea) flour, so I thought it was safe - wrong! After reacting several times, I saw, hidden in the bottom corner of the bag, after the several different translations of the ingredients list was: contains wheat - What? But it wasn't listed in the ingredients!

 

Humandecency - it's hard to say when the withdrawals stopped, because they were mixed up with accidental glutenings - no matter how clean you think you're eating at first, there is bound to be a multitude of places gluten is still hiding! lol. I felt amazing for the first 2 weeks, then it got messy.

 

Notme! - Do you mean a lining to go inside the current "bowl" in the crock pot, or do you mean a new "bowl", I.e. on mine it is a metal non-stick one, I bought it specally coz you can start it off on the stove, then put in back into the slowcooker.....I used to have a ceramic one....which I wouldn't have worried about cc with, sheesh. And yeah, I always keep a food diary.....and I'm with you on the "fake" glutenings....but they wear off quickly.....my glutenings last for 3 weeks! (Bloat, digestive discomfort, SEVERE brain fog (I can't even speak, let alone think), joint pain, "C", insomnia, fever, blood sugar swings etc.

 

Pegleg - I think you are right.....I started to wonder a few hours ago it this was  just a continuation of the glutenings I've had.....now that I can actually type this text, I'm pretty sure you are right (although I'm making good use of spell check, and it's taking ages, lol)...I'm still going to be cautious of that crockpot (it's less than 4 mths old!).....I'm going to avoid using it for, well, quite a while, lol.

 

Also, I'd just like to say, although I don't post much...I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't found this forum - you are all wonderful! I was so sick 4 years ago that I had to leave my job as a teacher in college. Then I worked self-employed doing something else from home...but a lot of days I couldn't work at all.....nowadays I'm well much more often than I am ill!!!

Thank you. x

greebo - here in the us, reynolds makes plastic liners to go inside the crock - like a heat resistant baggie, made from the same stuff that oven bags are made of i think.  

 

peg has a good point - my glutenings last for 14 DAYS not 12, not 13.....   during that time, all bets are off and even the 'safest' things make my symptoms flare.  yay...  :(  if yours last for 3 eeks, chances are it's just residual reactions.  

 

haha 3 eeks - i think i'll leave that - seems appropriate :)

The liners are awesome, I love them for when I just don't feel up to being able to clean up after myself. I never saw a metal crock pot insert, but I can see how it would be convenient. I just do my meat on the stove if I want to sear it before I throw it in the pot, it only takes a few minutes and it isn't a big deal to wash a pan.

ha ha ha, yes....3 eeks!

 

I'm like I was hit by a truck for the first 3 days, then each day I get to feel a shade better, after a week I'm back to about half my mental powers, but it's 3 weeks until I'm 100%. I notice the mental part the most because it really affects my job - my whole job is thinking/writing and problem solving. If I attempt to work in the first week, I just have to spend the next 2 weeks trying to put right the rubbish I produced!

 

I definitely want some of those liners! I hope I can find them here, it might me that my local supermarket has them, I didn't know they existed!!! Thanks for the link Adalaide

A metal non-stick pot - that means it's some sort of Teflon, right? And you said it's scratched. That IS your source of CC. Gluten hides in those scratches and can't be cleaned out. Any scratched Teflon pans that have ever had gluten in them will CC you. Try cooking the chicken or whatever in a different pan and I bet you won't get sick. Either get some of those liners or get a new crockpot.

You need to consider the detection limit of the test.  Some are sensitive to lower levels than detectable by home tests.

hI bartful,

Do you think so even though the pot is quite new, and I got it after going gluten-free? (Did you miss this in the OP, or in your experience do you think that cooking CC'd food is now enough to make it gluteny forever?) - sorry, I just want to be clear and interested in your opinion.

 

In any case, I still don't trust it............ I looked for the liners (can only get them expensively online), so I have bought the regular kind of roasting bags (for the oven) and am going to use those in my crock pot, hopefully that will work just  the same...

I'm thinking that if I just put all my ingredients in the bag, seal the bag and place in the crockpot it'll work.......hope so anyway.

Thanks for the ideas, and I'm feeling, a shade better today. :rolleyes:

I would think if the CC in the beans was enough to make you sick, the CC left in the scratches would be enough to make you sick. I admit I AM super careful to the point of justifiable paranoia, :lol: , but I wouldn't take a chance on it.

Nope, not paranoia, just a healthy desire not to get sick AGAIN......and we all know what that's like!!! I kept trying to quantify the risk..

Anyway, good, so wasn't losing it yesterday.......just a bit peeved that I've glutened my crockpot and didn't want to believe it yesterday, lol.

 

Off to go look up the price of a new insert, thanks.

Super-Sensitive viewpoint:  Hopefully, you don't have to go to this extreme!

How far in did you leave the withdrawal symptoms behind?

OH, I hope you were not 30 years from undeniable symptoms as I was with a similar amount of damage.  I always hoped I had some kind of meter to gage just what my reactions are.  You see I have had many reactions and could not tell when gluten withdrawal ended and accidental contaminations or other intolerances became issues.  My fogginess and fatigue has been gone since I eliminated foods I had antibodies too.  It would be hard for me to distinguish one reaction from another.  I think the trick is to keep on analyzing and figure out what works for you as you go. 

 

You can get ideas here on the forum, but we all are different, and if you eliminate every food that someone doesn't tolerate, I am afraid you would starve. In fact I feel quite sure of it. I am 1 1/2 years gluten free and about 1 year grain free. I went on a rotational diet 6 months back.  At that point my mind cleared and fatigue lessoned, but fogginess eventually returned.  I cut out buckwheat, (which is good for most) , and I have been well since buckwheat withdrawal ended.  That withdrawal lasted several weeks.  Maybe 6.  At which point I eliminated all foods that I had  had antibodies for, and my mind cleared and my energy increased.   If I had a gage, it could tell me whether my improvements were due to eliminating those foods, or buckwheat withdrawal ended.

 

I just realized my above explanation is only diet related, but  a gage would also measure other things I did things to overcome the overwhelming fatigue I experienced.

.  I have taken an aggressive supplement program for 6 years.

.  I have cut out all sweets at that same time.

.  I eat vegetables!

.  I grow vegetables!

.  I take digestive enzymes (This occurred about the same time as I eliminated foods I had antibodies to.)

.  I have avoided artificial flavors and colors for decades.

.  I get sunlight.

.  I balance my proteins, carbs and fats

 

That is why I am not sure how long it took me for gluten withdrawal.  I only know that I am very glad that I have come this way and am experiencing clear mind and stronger body about 1 1/2 years in the gluten process.  I am glad also that I ate a hamburger for the first time in months last Friday with no regrets!  I didn't hardly notice that it was wrapped in lettuce and doused with mango sauce.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening
