Shadybrook Farms Ground Turkey
0

5 posts in this topic

So I made this awesome turkey meatloaf a few nights ago (Lay's Stax instead of breadcrumbs etc. -- gluten free, all the way) and I got this weird feeling in my gut after I started eating it. I went and retrieved the package from the Shadybrook Farms ground turkey and noticed that the label said that it contained ground turkey...and NATURAL FLAVORING! My internet access was down but the symptoms just kept coming so I assumed there was something wrong. My internet goes back up. I log onto the Delphi forums and apparently Shadybrook Farms Ground Turkey is safe. Instantly, my symptoms recede...like magic. But then again, maybe it was just time for them to dissapate.

So is the Delphi info out of date? Or did I psyche myself into a faux-glutening? (Or did some evil fairy sprinkle breadcrumbs into my mouth while I was sleeping....) Anyone else with a bad experience with ground turkey meat from Shadybrook farms?

You psyched yourself out. Here's what Shadybrook says on its website:

Does Shady Brook Farms™ Turkey contain gluten or MSG? TOP

Most all of our products are MSG and gluten free. The only exceptions are our meatballs, a new Teriyaki Tenderloin and a new frozen Turkey Burger.

All of our deli meats are also MSG and gluten free.

We don't use flour on the conveyor belts in any of our Shady Brook Farms™ processing plants.

I just ate some Shadybrook farms and am having a gluten reaction as well. Trying to figure out what I ate that could have had gluten in it. Nothing new in my diet today (I am new to the gluten-free diet and being really careful about reading all labels and eating a lot of fruits/veggies and almost everything homemade). Tonight I decided to try and made a turkey meatloaf and bought turkey meat from Shadybrook farms, the label looked safe enough, bought gluten-free bread crumbs. Threw in onions, an egg, and Heinz Ketchup (labeled gluten-free). So if the turkey is gluten-free can't figure why I've ran to the bathroom already in the hour 2 times! This is the first time since changing the diet that I've had a problem. I think that there might be a slight amount of gluten in the turkey even if they say there isn't... if we react to it, there must be!

A caution to readers: This topic is from December of 2005. A lot may have changed in over five years. Research current ingredients in the products rather than relying on old information here.

Well, no, not necessarily. Many of us have additional food intolerance issues beyond gluten. We are quick to blame gluten, but there may be other causes. I react violently to shrimp, but that does not prove that shrimp contain gluten. What it does demonstrate is that I am highly allergic to shellfish. A serious issue for me, but nothing to do with celiac disease or gluten.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
