Canola Oil Brand?
0

5 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm making gluten free cookies for my friend's lacrosse team where at least two girls have gluten allergies. I have Stop n Shop brand canola oil which says it may contain wheat. It is related to food product isa and I have to know if it is safe to use. Thank you.

if it says it may contain wheat, then your finished product may contain wheat.  even a little bit will make a celiac sick.

To follow that up - please be careful of your cookie sheets, mixer, etc.  Use parchment paper on the cookie sheets, make sure the mixer is extremely clean, don't use your sugar if you may have used a measuring cup in flour first at some point, etc.

 

To be honest, I don't eat foods made by someone I don't know well.  I think it is nice that you want to try to make gluten-free cookies.  You need to be very careful of any accidental gluten.

Unfortunately you will have to get another brand of canola oil.  However, before you put more money into what you are doing, like Karen said, the girls still may not be able to eat them if they are made in your kitchen and on/with implements that have already come into contact with gluten.  If you have a gluten free bakery in your local area, you may be able to pick them up something there.  If you get them each a fancy cupcake and everyone else gets a smaller cookie they won't feel bad, and that way you can guarantee it is safe for them to eat.  Some grocery stores also have gluten-free baked goods in the frozen section- you can see if they have anything and then also buy the gluten filled counterpart for the rest of the team so they aren't having anything incredibly different.

 

If you know the girls well enough, it is also fun to have a baking party, but do it at their house where everything is gluten-free and they can know it is safe.  Feel free to ask us any more questions! :)  I think it is great you are trying to include everyone.

I don't eat foods I don't prepare, only for reasons stated up above. I know your heart is in the right place, but if they are Celiac they may not eat them. They don't know if they will be CC'd .

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
