Okay so i researched mono and dyclycerides and polysorbate 80, and its was on the gluten safe list. It was said that it normally coms from corn and other gluten safe products, but i ate icecream today and reacted to it, idk if i reacted because it contains dairy or if it actually do have gluten.

Then i came across to this website that those ingredients do contain gluten, so im kinda confused.

Heres the link http://livingglutenandgrainfree.com/2011/07/12/is-your-ice-cream-gluten-free/

Mono & Diglycerides

Monoglycerides and diglycerides are different kinds of fat made from vegetables and soybeans. (Most of the fat we consume falls into the triglyceride category.) These ingredients keep the ice cream from separating once mixed. Since only a tiny amount is used, monoglycerides and diglycerides do not contribute any measurable fat calories.

 

Polysorbate 80

Polysorbate 80 is made from soybeans and corn and helps in the whipping and freezing of the ice cream.

 

 

None contain gluten. I believe even if it is a carrier ingredient if it's from wheat in the US it must say so on the label since Wheat is oneo f the top 8 allegens required by law to be on food labels.

 

She metioned her son reacts to Polysorbate 80 that doesn't mean that it contians gluten it could be a cross reactive reaction and not a gluten one. There are some foods that some Celiacs react to that do not contain gluten but they react the same as they would to gluten.  http://andrewcordova.com/is-coffee-gluten-free/

There is no scientific evidence for cross reactive foods in Celiac Disease. It is possible you get similar symptoms. That doesn't mean it is causing your body to produce antibodies. Your link is just some guy who thinks he knows a lot about Celiac. Not sure he has any real scientific basis.

Food poisoning, lactose intolerance and stomach virus have some of the same symptoms, too. Doesn't mean we are producing antibodies

I have Turkey Hill ice cream in my freezer right now, and when I started reading your post I thought I'd have to get rid of it! But the Turkey Hill website itself says those ingredients aren't from wheat, and doesn't it have to be disclosed on the label if the are? I don't particularly like buying food with those types of ingredients anyway, but the "pure" ice cream with ingredients lists that read like a recipe are just so expensive!

     I had a major birthday a couple weeks ago. After not having had soy ice cream in quite some time and not remembering why I requested ice cream with gluten free cones. I hadn't had a cone in over eight years so I was in heaven and ate 6 of the 8 servings in the container during the day. I woke up not feeling so well and knew something amiss. I'll leave out the details but after reading the label and seeing how much of the daily fiber was in each serving I think about 12% and times that out by the six servings....... I then knew it was the fiber not anything else I had eaten. Now two weeks and three days later I hope to be on the better side of this. Taking Immodium AD after set things the other way and has made a tough go of it. Best of luck to you. If anyone has a magic formula for resetting the stomach please advise. (If I had been more moderate in what I ate, I think I would have been fine.)

At first i thought it was the diary, but today i ate cereals with milk, and i had no reaction. Idk wat it could be, maybe my intestines are not yet capable to digest processed foods. The brand of icecream i had was PET icecream. Well all i know is that i wont try that ice cream anymore.. Ive checked on the internet that some breyers icecream are gluten free. So next time ill just get those.

My symptoms was extreme fatigue and bloating, that i just had to take a nap. But im them type on celiacs that get constipated when glutened. And idont think fiber is my problem.

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding.
