What 20 Ppm Means In Our Lives
0

17 posts in this topic

An easy explanation of how 20ppm works in our lives.

 

Please remember:

 

 Some gluten-free food manufacturers currently use more sensitive testing (10ppm or 5 ppm).  I doubt they will change that to 20 ppm just because of this new law. And :Just because something tests at less than 20 ppm or 10 ppm, that does not mean it has 19 ppm or 9 ppm. It could reasonably have 2 ppm or 0.

 

 

To put it in perspective, you would have to eat about 18 slices of gluten-free bread in one day to reach the daily 10 mg level of gluten consumption,” says Cureton

 

http://www.massgeneral.org/children/assets/pdf/gluten-labeling-release-080213.pdf

 

 

 

I do not intend this to be a big discussion about how sensitive you are or an argument about the validity of this standard.  If you have valid research into this you want to argue, start a topic about this.  I only wanted to help explain the new standard in an easy to understand way for the majority of Celiacs.

If I ate 18 slices of gluten-free bread in one day, not only would I reach the daily ten mg. level, but I would also reach 300 pounds and bankruptcy! :lol:

(But I have to admit, Canyon Bakehouse bread is so good that could be a real temptation.)

And Canyon tests at less than 5 ppm so.... Maybe 72 pieces of bread?  :blink:

at 15 slices per loaf and $6 a loaf  = $28 a day for bread!  I guess if you ate 72 pieces of bread, you wouldn't be able to eat any more food....so you might save some money that way?  But don't come on here and complain about the D or C you got from eating all that bread!  :ph34r:

I admit, when I first found Canyon Bakehouse, I went through a loaf every two days! It was my "consolation snack", and not only did I eat the bread, but it was absolutely dripping with butter. I ate four slices for breakfast, then had a couple more for an afternoon snack, then I'd have another slice or two in the evening. When I could no longer fit into my "fat jeans", and when I stopped to realize how much money I was spending, I put a stop to it.

 

Now I buy a loaf maybe once a month. When it's gone, I just do without bread until I feel like buying more. I mostly just eat whole foods, but once in a while as a treat I do bread, or maybe ice cream. I even have a package of Udi's double chocolate muffins that has been sitting UNTOUCHED in my freezer for over a week! Adapting to a gluten-free diet has taught me that I DO have willpower! :)

OR that you split your pants and have to wear sweats now.

 

Great explanation for the Newbies, K. And a refresher course for the rest of us.

 

Thanks for sharing all the great info from the ICDS.  Got any more? :)

As long as we are doing the Canyon Bakehouse 12 step program,  I usually keep 5 loaves of it in the freezer....and I usually eat 2 slices per day.  The glutton in the household is my husband...who LOVES this bread.  We go through about 2 loaves per week and most of it isn't me.  However, if my supply gets down to a mere 1 loaf, I have to admit to a little panic....especially if it's wintah and snow is comin'!   :o

You know what happens when it snows...the bread aisle empties out so it's doubly hard for Celiacs......our bread isn't available everywhere so you have to be prepared.  I'm not getting stuck in a blizzard without Canyon Bakehouse!   ;)

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
