My 7 year old was diagnosed with celiac disease in September then shortly after both my husband and I where diagnosed. We have done a pretty good job of getting all the gluten out of our house. We have two other children that were not diagnosed so to keep costs down we let them have regular bread but that is about is for gluten in my house. We do not get really sick when glutened but we do notice some stomach problems. I have been using rice a lot for about a week and the 3 of us started having problems I stopped for about 4 days and we started to feel better then I tried rice again and we all were sick the next day. My question is, is there a rice brand out there that anyone has used often with out problems? We were using Wal-Mart's brand. Also we use gluten free soy sauce other then that no other sauce my kids like plain rice.

Welcome to the board.

Perhaps try a different brand of rice when you are feeling better.

Some of us also have issues with soy so the soy sauce could be the problem.

It can be frustrating for a bit as we heal and can be hard to figure out what is giving us issues. A food diary can help pinpoint things that are causing delayed reactions as it isn't always the last thing we ate that bother us. It can be something we ate days before.

Angelmomh2,

 

It is possible that you don't tolerate rice.  Some people don't tolerate rice.  You could try an alternative grain like teff, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, or amaranth.  Quinoa come in flakes that can replace oatmeal.  If you like oatmeal just make sure it is certified gluten free.

I thought I was having a problem with Rice also. I gave my 25lb bag away. Then it dawned on me it was the butter I was putting in it! I am also Lactose intolerant. When I would make  the rice I'd put a lil butter in it. Then when I ate it for left overs, i'd put more butter in it. Only thing I could figure is it was the rice. But I woke up one day about 3 am in pain and agony! And it came to me! It was the butter! So now I clarify my butter :) Yay I can eat rice again! :) I also thought I had a problem with Quinoa but again I was using butter.

I did better with rice from Thailand.  Eventually, though, we gave up on it completely.

Are you certain that the pan or cooker you are using is free of residual gluten?  Just a thought...

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Hi Angelmom, 

 

I found that non gluten-free certified brands of rice were hit or miss, but more hits, with glutenings. I think it's probably because rice and barley are often grown and transported together, especially in Asia. It got to the point where I decided to do only certified rice, so I stick with Lundberg. It's been fine for me.

I believe wal marts brand of rice glutened me, as well. I only buy brands of rice that I know are gluten free or can go to their website. Otherwise, I don't trust them too much - it can have a large amount of gluten from how it is processed

we use success jasmine rice and it is labeled 'gluten free' - honestly haven't tried too many different brands.  i use 'della' brand for when  make risotto.  you may want to use a food journal if you aren't sure what's bothering you.  i have an additional sensitivity to soy but i never would have figured it out without keeping track of *everything* i was eating, even if it was just a bite of this or that.  soy was the common irritant.  i can still eat it, just a little at a time or it will cause a reaction that mimics my gluten reaction.  it goes away quicker, but when i didn't know what was causing it i was all like:  WHAT did i eat that had gluten in it???  corn is also a big culprit.....

 

soy is actually harder to avoid, i have found, than gluten!   and many people who have a corn intolerance say the same about avoiding corn/corn products.   good luck!

I agree with other comments that rice can be difficult to digest especially in the newly and still healing celiac.  You may want to wait a few months and then try again.  Also you might want to consider an organic rice.  Rice crops are heavily sprayed with a variety of  pesticides which can add to tummy problems.  Lundberg has a nice organic rice, they are a very gluten free friendly family business.  I see that brand in local stores so it's not hard to find.

What certification does the Lundberg rice have that you are interested in?

 

Does anyone know of GIG or CSA certified rices (the grain, not rice flour or products)

 

Shiloh farms say they are working on getting certified

Make sure not to eat white rice.   Go with brown.   Its easier on the stomach because it contains fiber.    Also look for sprouted rice.   You wont find it in many stores, and unfortunately not at all in Walmart.    Truroots is a good brand of sprouted brown rice.   Sprouted rice will be much easier on the stomach than unsprouted.

OMG I never knew this! THIS IS WHY I JOINED THIS FORUM!!!! Thank you so much for this info. 

 

Man, this means that rice can be just as troublesome as oat. This needs to be bigger news. People need to know about this!
