Gluten In Rice Milk? Other Problems
0

3 posts in this topic

I've been trying to use Rice Dream Rice Drink instead of cow's milk or soy milk wirh rice chex in the morning, or with Carnation instant breakfast at dinner (which I now know to stay away from). When I do I have problems in AM, then am ok, then problems pm, then ok.

Hidden on the back of the box (other flavors list this under ingredients so I haven't tried them) are the words "contains gluten from barley protein at less than 0.002%." Is that enough to bother?

My ELab results were "thumbs down" for gluten, dairy, egg, and yeast. I switched to rice drink rather than soy milk because I thought that bothered me. Fiber seems to bother me, and for some reason sugar really bothers. I can have Lifestream/Nature's Path Buckwheat Wildberry Toaster waffles (gluten, dairy, yeast, and egg free)(taste okay) with margarine and am ok. With syrup I have problems. Jello is bad. Jelly beans bad. Honey ham seems to bother. Etc.

If anyone has problems with soy products or sweets your comments would be appreciated. Rice Chex lists sugar as #2 ingredient even though they are not sweet.

re: eggs

Am going to try cornbread again, I've been shying away from corn products while I sort other things out. Not sure whether to use an egg or not. One piece of cornbread would be 1/9 of an egg, about the same as a couple Gluten Free Pantry chocolate chip cookies (not bad) which didn't seem to bother. Try it and see?

I guess this post is about as confused as I am. Losing eggs, yeast, and dairy really made things tough - no more bread or rolls. If I can save corn it will be a big plus.

If you are on a low budget I plan to post a good leftover chicken over rice recipe in the food forum tomorrow. One cup of diced chicken is enough for me and mom for dinner.

Talk to you folks later.

You betcha that's enough to bother! That is all it takes to cause a reaction in me. I have had to quit eating all processed cereals because even that little bit does me in. Instead of an egg, try 1 Tbsp of ground flax mixed with 3 Tbsp of water, set aside to thicken for a minute. I use it in my pancakes, and it works just great! Also, the rice chex I used to eat listed malt flavoring, which is a barley product, in the ingredients.

Hi Phil,

I am allergic to soy, so I don't use soy milk anymore for myself. At the doctor insistance I bought some for my kids. The doctor did warn me that they might be soy intolerant as well as gluten and dairy. One out of three of my kids gets a bad stomachache after drinking the soy milk. By the third day he was rolling on the floor in pain and couldn't go to school. It wore him out and he ended up taking a three hour nap! For a 7 year old this is a big deal! ;) So no more soy milk for him. He does okay on smaller amounts of soy. Like the soy lecithin and soybean oil in products and the soy flour in the gluten-free pretzels. But the soy milk was just too much for him.

You should try to find a rice milk that does not use barley in the processing. Rice Dream is a no-no for us, but I have used Pacific brand. We prefer Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It tastes great and we use the plain flavored for our cereal and the chocolate for drinking. I recommend that you skip the vanilla flavored it just doesn't taste right. I do hope you feel better.

There are lots of substitutes for eggs when cooking. I would suggest trying those before using eggs. At least for a while and let your self heal. You may someday be able to tolerate eggs and yeast again. There are some other "raising agents" that can be used instead of yeast also. Here is a good

article on yeast free baking .

God bless,

Mariann

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
