Tiger Milk Protein Bar Or Amy's Indian gluten-free Burrito, Any Idea Which One Is The Problem?
0

4 posts in this topic

I ate an Amy"s burrito and a tiger milk bar that I thought was gluten-free. I ate the burrito yesterday. I had a terrible reaction this afternoon. I am trying to figure out the source. Grr. So are tiger milks all gluten-free? What do you know and I'm thinking the spice may have done a number on me as well. I had an extra cup of coffee with almond milk as well. I despise when I can't figure out the problem. What are your thoughts?

 

Also does taking an Imodium the day before make a reaction worse? I just took two more Imodium as well. I hate taking the stuff.

 

How do you get back on track asap and leave reactions behind?

Are you sure the burrito was gluten free.  She makes a few varieties including organic and gluten free.  All sold in the same area.

I was about to say the same thing.  One time I bought a handful of their gluten-free burritos (which are awesome by the way) and almost bought a regular burrito that had gotten stuck in there.  Also the stockers at my store like to shove the gluten version in the gluten-free spot when they aren't paying attention, especially with brands that have a gluten-free/non-gluten-free version that look similar this could definitely cause a mixup.

 

I looked up the tigers milk bars online and was only able to find very outdated information that said only some of their flavors are gluten-free.  I would write the company to check in on that.  If they are made on the same line as bars containing gluten, there could be a CC possibility.

 

And then, like you said, it could also be just from eating food that is not your norm.  Hope you are able to bounce back soon.  I am unable to advise on how to bounce back, I get atypical reactions.

Other people here have been sickened by Amy's.  Although that company makes gluten-free products, they also make non-gluten-free and from what I have read, they are all made in the same facility.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
