Gluten-Free, Soy-Free Eggs
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

I'm raising a backyard flock 17 chickens (who range on two acres) on an organic, gluten-free, soy-free feed (peas, lentils, sunflower seeds, millet, and non-GMO corn, if I can find a source nearby), garden scraps, emphasizing greens + insects whenever and however possible.

 

My question is, I'd like to find folks preferably local (I am in central NJ), or if I can find a way of sending eggs in the mail, perhaps farther, to barter our extra eggs for some other kind of good or produce. I know that it can be very difficult for folks with celiac who react to the trace amount of gluten in most eggs to find "gluten free eggs" unless they raise their own backyard flocks. Doing it this way is a bit more expensive and a bit more work, and I'd like to share the goodness. I'm just wondering if anyone here might benefit from our extra eggs?

 

Fresh, unwashed eggs can last up to 7 months in a refrigerator and about a month unrefrigerated.

 

Thanks!

I would love it, but I'm not close enough.

Oh man...not this again!   :blink:

 

I think it's great that you raise chickens for fresh eggs because they really are nice to have BUT there is no trace gluten in any egg.  Anyone new to Celiac or the gluten-free diet needs to know...eggs are safe.  Really...they are.

 

Good luck with the chickens!   :)

I would suggest you find your local farmer's market.  Or donate your extra eggs to your local food bank.  ;)

I had a phone call with a farmer who had been shipping eggs in the mail.  Some government agency had come down on her.  Eggs need to be shipped in a narrow temperature window and they were still trying to figure out a way to do that.  It probably wouldn't be practical for a flock of 17 hens.  Lisa's idea is a good one.  There is a pasture raised meat and egg person at my market who usually has a big line of people at her stall.  You could also freeze them for the winter.  I do that as it is cold here in the winter so they supplement the pasture raised hens with feed and I start reacting.  I am super sensitive.

Maybe a stupid question but....

 

How are you freezing eggs?  I have frozen them cooked like scrambled/casserole.  For some reason I never thought of freezing them raw.  This would be great for traveling.

Karen,

I have made home made ice cream before and saved the egg whites from all those yolks I used, put them in an ice cube tray and then stored them in a bag once frozen.  Here is a website that lays out how to freeze eggs, but yes they do freeze well, out of the shell of course.  For whole eggs I would beat them, and freeze in ice cube trays so you can dump them all in a ziploc and take out just what you need.  However with fresh eggs being so readily available most people would consider this a hassle.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I'v posted on here b4... 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant. ( they were kinda shocked that test for celiac was negative) anyway my symptoms went away up until a few months ago. I went to the gi doctor and they said I can't have dairy or fructose.. * I found that out yesterday, I thought my tests for dairy was neg but guess it was pos. And I had no clue about the fructose*..    Anyway is it possible to have all these I tolerances? It's not making since to me.... also if you experience same thing what can I eat!! All I had today was grilled chicken and rice because it was on my lost from gi doctor... I'm a college student so I need easy quick stuff as easy as I can have it now I guess.. also is almond milk ok to have and coconut milk? I'm very confused on the fructose part.. dairy I'v been of for 6 weeks.... my doctor sent a referl over to a diatrition doctor but I want stuff to get me by until I get in. I don't even know what to look for all the research I'v done is just confusing me even more since different websites say different things..... thank you in advance.. I'm trying to gain weight I was gaining the first few yrs of being gluten free but I went back word and stuff went down hill again... 
    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.

      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      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.
