That's about it. That's everything I ingest, and the doctors are positive something contains gluten. I've called manufacturers about many of these items to make certain they are gluten-free. As far as cross-contamination, I use a separate toaster, no one dips in my PB or Jelly jars, and I have my own skillet and pans. There is no reason I can see for this diarrhea, and I'd really love some help! Thanks for taking time to read all this!

Have you checked your
I can't be for sure but a few things stand out are the pre made things
Hotdogs-does anyone really know what’s in them
Apple Sauce-check for natural flavors
Kasha? I'm not sure what that is but it sounds like a grain so I would triple check to make sure it's ok. I've personally given up all grains except rice and I feel much better.
Rice Cakes-are they plain or flavored
Peanut Butter and Jelly-They are both suppose to be safe but I don't react well GI wise to either. Nuts in general bother me.
Be careful of meds. I would triple check these.
Hope you feel better soon.

You might want to check what kind of vinegar the pickles are in, does the hamburger contain fillers, does the Herb Ox bouillon contain MSG, Kasha cereal is made from Buckwheat but may be processed in a factory that produces wheat products on the same lines, and make sure the apple cider vinegar is not "flavored " but is really apple cider vinegar. Perhaps one of these is your unknowing culprit?

I agree with Terri on checking into the hamburger. Places like Walmart put in questionable flavorings....
And, in his younger years, my husband worked in a grocery store's meat department. His boss would regurally add bread crumbs to the 70% hamburger!!!! Can you imagiane?!!!!
I don't remember which store, but any could do something like that!
Just wanted to add my 2 cents!
PS Are you kissing someone who isn't gluten-free?

As far as the vinegar and MSG I was under the impression that the MSG was not a threat is made in the us. With the vinegar they have changed the orginial thinking that it was unsafe to that it is safe.....
If this is incorrect I would love for someone to correct me. That's my understanding though.
