Wheat Bran - Try It - It's Great!

34 posts in this topic

I've mixed wheat bran into my cereal and it gave me no "wheat" pain   ,and make me feel fuller longer.

I don't think it has wheat protein,since it's just the outer husk of the wheat and is not absorbed by the intestine.  I think wheat bran is a celiac's best friend  !  What do you think.

Of course wheat bran is not safe for Celiacs.

 

Perhaps you don't really have Celiac Disease?  You haven't been an active member for years, so I have no idea if you were diagnosed or not.  I also wonder if someone managed to get into your account and post this for fun?

I wouldn't touch it ... buy it.. or have it in my house. Let alone eat it. My thing is this... Just because it doesn't give you pain doesn't mean it isn't doing something BAD to your body. What would make you do such a thing?

Looks like you were never diagnosed with Celiac disease?  Just having the genes does not mean you have Celiac.  That might be why you can eat small amounts of wheat  and get away with it.

 

Even if the bran didn't have the protein Celiacs react to in it, the processing would certainly leave some.

If you have Celiac or NCGI, you are taking a huge risk eating wheat bran. You may think it is safe to eat, but you are wrong, sorry.

At the risk of being warned or even banned, I'm going to say that this has to be about one of the dumbest things that I've heard. Just because it's the wheat husk, it doesn't have any gluten?! That's like saying an orange rind doesn't have any vitamin C. All I can say is that if it works for you, go for it but I wouldn't be recommending it to a Celiac sufferer.

I think with friends like that, who needs any damn enemies. And anyone that would suggest that is an idiot and has no idea what this is all about.

Gonna take more than that to get me upset but I don't want/need anyone giving any newbies or oldies any bad advice that could set them back and make them miserable.

Mommida makes a good point, but Candy may simply think it's okay because she is "not feeling anything"

and we all know that does not mean it's not causing damage..

 

CANDY...stop eating wheat bran.

Very true.  We should look into a way of getting rid of straight up foolishness. ;)

 

Newbies...  If it says wheat, Don't eat! :rolleyes:

It is NOT SAFE for those with Celiac or intolerances or allergies. That's great that it doesn't give you any ill effects but it isn't safe for most in this community.

Funny that you post that link , because if anybody reads it , it says this :All three components contain a plant storage protein known as gluten............ So you should read what what you post. it contains GLUTEN!!

I think Stephanie did read it. That's why she posted it. And she said it wasn't safe.

I'm relatively new here, and I have to say that you all should relax about the newbies.  Being new does not equal being stupid or gullible.  

 

This is an obvious troll.  No one is going to take this seriously unless they remain completely uneducated about gluten in all other respects.  Even if the bran didn't contain gluten itself, the mere fact that it's processed from wheat would make it rife with cross contaminants.  I think even a newbie is smart enough to sort that one out :)

I'm glad you know how to use your brain!  :)

 

I used to think this,  too.  Unfortunately,  I can't count the number of people who read the first post "Wheat bran is gluten-free ..." and never go any further down the thread.  Then they mention that they read it somewhere and its OK.  Someone calling herself a home ec expert started giving medical advice and its wrong and all over the internet and is constantly being brought up here as fact.  :wacko:

Agree, wheat bran should not be eaten by celiacs.  There are other forms of fiber that are safe and not expensive.  Like psyillium husks, citrus fiber, celery and many other veggies.  Candy, there is no need to risk your health by eating wheat bran when there are plenty of alternative fiber sources available.  Fiber does help many people's digestion, and can be a useful thing in the diet.  But stick to the safer forms of fiber that don't have gluten in them.

I would of believed it! I had nooooo clue what I was doing.  I am still finding things that have gluten.

Sometimes it is almost unbearable. :blink:

 

Beware of "I heard," "I saw," or "I read." To me, they are worth as much as "I imagined."

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
