5 posts in this topic

My daughter and I were shopping today , looking thru the cereals and darn it!! Some of those packages are gluten free, it says waaayyyyy at the bottom in lil tiny letters .. I wish they would make it a lil easier. I guess as you go thru the years you know what to buy and what to stay away from. Us newbies , well we need a bigger sign sometimes!!

Thank you :) Yea I realize on here you all can answer just about any question :) And I truly appreciate that :) I was really just complaining lol I cannot ask while I am in the store (No signal) but I know if I write it down and the post in here I will get an answer. You all are so smart! 

 

It is just like Frito's (I LOVE) on the back towards the bottom it says "Gluten free" I wonder why they don't show it on the front a lil bigger. I was eating these just off the ingredient list , wondering if they were "Truly" gluten free. Then one day I seen the lil "Gluten free" at the bottom in the back. Is it because some people would be turned off at Gluten free? So they don't post it bigger? Just rambling thoughts in my head is all.  When we were at the store we were looking at cereal. And low and behold on the back at the bottom was the lil 'Gluten free' So I guess I have already learned to search for it in the back at the bottom in tiny letter lol .. Better than not seeing it at all ...

I have to make sure I have my extra strength (200s) reading glasses at the grocery.  Even then, some print is really small.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
