Would Anything In Here Cause A Reaction?

Hey all...a little over a month ago I made bread from Against All Grain.  I was really excited to try it because I've been missing bread.  Got all the ingredients...made it.  It was decent.  Wouldn't want it for a turkey sandwich, but toasted with preserves it was good.  

 

I ate a few slices over a couple of days and then started not feeling well.  Froze the remainder.  I felt bad for a few weeks...went back to the chicken and rice type thing, added a food or 2 a day, kept a food journal.  Things were improving.  Saw the bread in the freezer last week and really wanted some.  Had 2 slices over 2 days and started feeling bad again.  

 

Started going over things with my husband and he said isn't that the bread you had been eating the last time you started feeling bad?  Yep.

 

So...does anything in here stand out as causing issues?  I will say that I have eggs, honey, baking soda and sea salt other times without any issues.

 

Ingredients:

 

Cashew Butter

Eggs

Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar

Almond Milk

Coconut Flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)

Baking Soda 

Sea Salt

 

 

Thanks!

Maybe the eggs? I think you told me on another post you were newly diagnosed? sorry, I can't remember? I am... I had to cut out dairy and eggs. I don't know if it's permanent yet.

I'm sure someone else will have ideas...

I eat eggs on their own and in other things without issues though. I don't know...It's constantly frustrating. Feels like I get one thing figured out and something else happens.

Is the flour processed in a gluten-free facility? (not familiar with Bob's Red Mill)

Hi Iceland.

 

You may not get much help with this.  None of the ingredients would bother me but may bother someone else.  The way to find out it to eat one single ingredient and see if you have a problem...Test them all.

 

Good luck.

Sounds like a very " rich" bread. Maybe its a bit too fatty?

I kind of figured....just wondering if anyone would pop up and say , "I always feel bad when I eat coconut flour."  Or something like that.   :)

Interesting...hadn't thought of that part...although when I was making it I was like 4 eggs?  1 cup of cashew butter?  Maybe it is the fat.  Thanks

Yeah, I have found that I do not handle fatty things very well just yet. If I eat something high in fat I get pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea. Some celiacs just don't process fat well for quite sometime after going gluten-free, hopefully it will improve over time.

Ok, it's definitely a possibility.  The rest of the time I don't really eat a lot of fat.  Thanks for the responses!

Bobs red mill is pretty good with their gluten free stuff, but they do sell some gluten-free and non gluten-free versions of the same items, so it is possible to pick up the wrong one by accident.

You're right. I did check mine and it says gluten free.

Reading your signature...saw the gallbladder thing and it made think. I had mine out on February 12th...and now I remember being told that getting that out caused some people to have more difficulty with fats. I'm really kind of thinking it's that. So glad I posted this.

If it were me, I would bet the almond milk or cashew butter because I am allergic to tree nuts, plus nuts are hard to digest in general with intestinal damage. Coconut makes me sick starting with nausea and ingestion and continuing on! I have tested coconut milk, organic oil, coconut frozen dessert and just plain old coconut and it makes me sick. I can tolerate coconut oil that is refined and probably has no nutritional value other than calories.

I do not have a gallbladder and my diet is more than 50% fat to control my blood sugar and I do well. You can develop intolerances at any time. That is my two cents!

Yes, not having a gallbladder can compound that problem. In any case, my GI doc says that it should improve over time, I just have the double whammy of having Celiac Disease and no gallbladder, both things that can make processing fat difficult.

I drink coconut water every day without issues and eat almonds without any problem so I'm thinking no...but who knows.

Knowing symptoms more in depth than "not feeling well" would really help in coming up with ideas for possible problems. For instance, diarrhea or cramping would be more likely to be one thing and constipation another.

If I had to find reasons to suspect ingredients in that bread, I'd consider:

1. Honey is high in fructose. Fructose is a common food intolerance and after going gluten-free, many people realize they have reactions to foods they didn't notice before. And fructose intolerance is more an issue of volume and being balanced out with glucose and proteins in the meals, rather than just ingredients. So you could react to an ingredient that is high in fructose in one meal but not another. If you suspect fructose is a problem for you, you might be reacting to fructans as well so something else to research.

2. Fat overload from the nuts. The gallbladder, pancreas, and lymphatic system all play a part in digesting fats, and all of them are on gluten's list of favorite organs to attack. Difficulty digesting fats could be a temporary problem if you're early in the gluten-free process and haven't had time to heal. Or it could be something to continue to keep an eye on long term. If fat were the problem I'd expect some noticeable signs in the toilet as well, such as undigested oils floating on the surface after bowel movements. I know, looking at your stool doesn't sound like fun, but it can really help with figuring out digestive problems.

3. Of course the flour or salt could be cross contaminated in the facility where they are processed. I have a couple of powdered spices that I suspect gluten me a tiny bit, but salt has never been one of them, and I would expect Bob's to do a good job in their facility. Those two would not be high on my suspect list.

4. What about the baking pans themselves? Do they have a non-stick coating? Were they in use before going gluten-free? If they aren't new since going gluten-free, I'd suspect them as being a potential source of gluten. Were you using the oven to make other foods that contained gluten right before or while you baked your bread? Or did you put your coconut flour into a container or used a scoop of some sort that used to be used for wheat flour?

Otherwise, others have already covered the other things that come to mind. Sometimes, you just never know.

I'm sorry I left that out. My primary symptoms were GIVEN related...mostly lots of D.

As I said in my post, I have honey other times without issues.

I do think fat may be the issue.

My baking pan is not non-stick and per the recipe I lined it with parchment paper. I threw out all my flours when I was diagnosed and thoroughly cleaned. The only flours I own and use are gluten free.

Thanks

    • Ugh!  So, you have early stages of celiac disease and that was after being gluten light?  It is a shame that your doctor is not comfortable about giving you a formal diagnosis because you don't have enough damage!  Time for a new GI.  You can also as for another pathologist to read your biopsies, but seriously....... Have a conversation with your current doctor about the reasons why he is hesitating.  He would rather you continue to become more ill or improve your health?   Are you going to be scarred for life with a celiac disease diagnosis? Maybe he is one of those people who think it is impossible to live with wheat, rye or barley!   I don't get it! 
    • Thanks for the comments. With Dr. Google, I have seen mast cell disorder pop up.  It seems like I need to eliminate some basics before heading in that direction. So, another question...is it possible that symptoms of celiac need time to "build up" over time? For instance,  I started reintroducing gluten and coffee last week to prepare for my GI appt.  However, nothing really seemed to happen except a little knee crankyness (which I can easily attribute to hiking).  Yet, yesterday I had a huge bagel at work, had itchy forearms, and then had two huge hives appear later.  Today, I had another bagel and in a few hours I had a few red fingers that were itchy and numb feeling in the tips.   I know histamine intolerance is a possibility, but wouldn't that show up as an extremely large hive with my allergy skin test? Also, I had to go into work today and yesterday. I'm wondering if that environment could contribute to the issue (I'm a high school teacher).  
    • Hi Fidel, The original poster hasn't been on the site for several years, so you may not get a response from them. But welcome to the forum!  
    • False positive or negative?  I was diagnosed with Coeliac and the more rare Dermatitis Herpetiforma.  I know that symptoms like youre describing could be a whole variety of conditions.  I have a friend who has ulcerative colitis whose symptoms are similar to what you are describing.  You could have ulcers, but keeping it real i have to say youre also describing opiate withdrawl.  So if youve been on pain killers prescibed or not that could be it also.  Best of luck
    • Hi Megan, Regarding dairy, celiac disease damages the villi that make the lactase enzyme that digests milk sugar (lactose).  So sometimes people can't digest dairy well when they first start the gluten-free diet.   Over time that may change as you heal.  The ability to digest dairy doesn't always come back, but it may. Throwing up can be caused by excess gas in the stomach.  That's pretty common when starting the diet.  Sugar and carbs will make it worse.  Udi's bagels are made of various flours so they are full of carbs.  Carbs are turned into sugar in the body and that feeds the bacteria, hence the gas. You could be reacting to various foods, so eliminating one problem food is not going to fix all the problems.  I think it would be more helpful to start by following the tips in my earlier post than to  try a full fledged elimination diet at this point.  Elimination diets can take a while to do. If you can stick to eating meats, vegetables, nuts for now that is a good thing.  No processed foods (like Udi's) or other baked goods.  This is probably the fastest way to get better and learn what is safe to eat.  Once you are feeling better for a few weeks then you can try adding in one new food a week and see how it goes.  The gluten-free diet is a lifetime commitment so you may as well start out right and take your time.  Whole foods are a good way to go at the beginning.  If you cook your own food you know what is in it.  That's important to know for us.  Avoiding any processed food with more than 3 ingredients is also good.  The fewer ingredients you are eating the simpler it is to figure out a problem. I wouldn't worry about the idea of the throwing up thing making you react to dairy.  Celiac is known to cause a problem with dairy intolerance.
