Soybean oil , ughhhh --> Propellent (sobutane and or propane) <--are you kidding me? Hydroxylated soy lecithin , soy lectihin, enriched four (Wheat flour, nacin , iron Thamaine ... ok I can barely see these ingredients need I say more? 

Really?? And or propane?? I fed this to my grandchildren??!!! Not only does it have Gluten in it! It is horrible!!

Hi W8in4dave.  I've seen some of your posts and I assume your relatively new to gluten free life.  If you haven't done so already, read the label on every food item in your home and avoid these surprises in the future.  Go thru toiletries for gluten products that come in contact with your mouth.  Check all prescription and OTC meds for gluten ingredients. 

 

Hopefully your adjustment goes smoothly from here.

 

All the best.

Takes time and diligence to completely remove gluten from your home.  Another thing you should get used to doing is carrying an assortment of snack food with you when you leave the house.  I keep a pack permanently in my car.  It has nuts, raisins, Lara bars and water.  I never want to be in a situation where I need something to eat and don't have a safe resource.

 

Gluten is sneaky!

Thanks!! Thats a great tip also. I did buy a bag of chips yesterday. I usually never eat that stuff. They were pretty good. Of course full of salt! Because Lundberg Rice Chips With Sea Salt lol... but truly only a couple times a year do I ever eat that kind of stuff.

You can buy bottle to use as cooking oil spray. You just add some olive oil and the nozzle sprays it on just like cooking spray.  I'm not describing it very well, but hopefully you can understand what I mean.  I'm not sure where we got ours - maybe Bed, Bath & Beyond or Williams Sonoma.  It doesn't spray as evenly as the commercial ones and the nozzle gets clogged sometimes, but for the most part it works.  I also use the generic olive oil cooking spray from my grocery store and it's gluten free.

 

I understand about the pain of checking labels.  I was grabbing some frozen broccoli out one night, shortly after being diagnosed, and was about to throw it in the pan.  I thought surely frozen broccoli would be safe.  It was a good thing I decided to check anyway.  There was flour in the broccoli.  Seriously?  Who puts flour in plain frozen broccoli?  And why?  I was just glad I caught it before I ate it.

Hi Waitin,

 

Gluten is used in a large number of products, even non-food items.  It is nice and sticky so it helps hold things together.  So it is used in many products besides food.  Some glues, wall paper paste, play dough, possible drywall spackle, other stuff.  If u'r gonna eat it read it.  Why eat something if you don't know whats in it?  For celiacs that's a recipe for problems.  We need to learn new habits to stay gluten-free.  Like reading every label, every time.  It might help to get one of those mini magnifiers they sell at drugstores.  Don't assume anything is safe just because you ate it before.  A little food paranoia can be your friend.

 

@GFlover,

 

Good to see you back Colleen! :)

The bottles for cooking sprays I got are called Misto. I got a 2 pack at Costco for $20 and would never consider living without them again. They are probably the most used gadget in my kitchen and I love love love them. I don't just use them for spaying pans either since they aren't all full of weird chemicals and stuff like the crap you buy in the store. Since it is just plain oil, I use them for things like a light coating of olive oil on my potato wedges or whatever else I need just a little coat of oil on. I haven't had any problems with them clogging, although I had read online that some people do. I prevent this by making sure it is always pumped fully before every use and cleaning it once a month.

 

I suppose I always took it for granted that baking sprays (not cooking sprays) have flour in them. I remember being super excited when I first found them on a store shelf when I was a teenager. No more greasing a pan by hand and carefully dusting the entire thing with flour making sure there are no missed areas or places with too much. I was sorely disappointed and never bought the crap again.

Don't forget to use gluten free pet food if you have pets that lick.

Pets that lick you...on the face, hands.   Same as having a gluten eater slobbering all over you.  And, yes, you can get glutened from kissing a Glutinator. Not to mention handling all that gluten filled pet food in a gluten free kitchen.  

 

Like GFinDC said.  Every label every time.  

 

W8in..small amounts of gluten, hidden gluten, will keep your immune system attacking your body.  This is a common reason some people continue to feel poorly and not heal.  This is why it is also advised by most celiac's that you replace wooden and plastic kitchen items as they absorb foods over time, as well as replacing scratched Teflon.  

 

* GFinDC. Great to be back and still alive!  Thanks

I don't feed my dog or store his food in the kitchen. He has a lil dish in the back room he eats out of.  He does NOT lick me in the face or hands. It is usually my ankles sometimes when we are outside he will just walk over and lick my ankles I usually stop him right away. Because I don't like dogs to lick. Thanks for all the info. I will keep it all in mind. I usually cook for my dog. He has what ever meat I am having , then he eats a small amount of his dog food. He only eats like a 10lb bag of food a year so he doesn't really eat to much anyway. But Maby I will make it hubbs chore to feed the dog his dog food. 

I feed the cats outside. but they are over by the rabbit kennels , hubbs feeds the rabbits , I will make it his chore to feed the cats.

    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      Thanks for the kind responses  Last night I went out and had a black coffee, non decaf.   Big mistake... I started getting gas almost immediately and it went on for the rest of the evening. It seems like anything which might annoy my stomach at the moment results in churning and an uncomfortable feeling. the weird thing is that I ate a huge lunch including gluten-free bread earlier with no effects whatsoever. Just as well as I couldn't face food last night and am not enthused with breakfast now.  C i think I'll dig out some probiotics and try and eat simply for a few days and hope things settle down. I'm just worried that something has changed and this is the new normal... That would suck...  
    • Toblerone
      It's on the safe list here in the uk and I eat it without a problem. theres also a really nice almondy toblerone cake available now.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
