I am pretty sure my daughter is reacting to the gluten-free pancake mix. It is the only new thing she has eaten and it happens not too long after that she gets D.

I know of some people who have reacted to Bob's Red Mill. I have used several of their gluten-free products and not had a problem.

I don't eat Bob's Red Mill hot cereal. My experience has been that it is not gluten-free. It's unfortunate, too, because their stuff tastes a lot better than the grits I now have every morning. Absent strict legislation on gluten on ingredients labels, this kind of nonsense is only going to continue and get us all sick.

I got glutened by their gluten-free baking mix :angry:

I had to dump a whole batch of really excellent brownies because of it <_< :angry:

I haven't had a problem with their flax meal, though...

YES! I am so glad that I found this post. I believe I was just glutened by the gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix-gotta toss that whole batch :( Also, I have had symptoms after using their gluten-free Pancake Mix, as well. Unless it's something else I'm reacting to?

I haven't had a problem with any other of their products, including the gluten-free biscuit/baking mix or the brownie mix.

So many people are experiencing the same thing here--have you all called the company to let them know? Besides for the fact that these products are so darn expensive (you could ask for your money back!), maybe they might want to know that their products aren't going to sell well with word getting around@ Someone should show them this thread....

I'm so confused! It's hard for me to pin down what REALLY is the cause of the mysterious "glutening" symptoms. Is it cross-contamination? Gluten that really is in the product? Or something else that I'm intolerant to in it that is causing the symptoms? Is it really "greasy foods" (I put extra oil in the cookies) that causes my reflux, and since I went "gluten free" things got better because most of the "fast food" or "greasy" type foods were also eliminated....It's frustrating...... I've infrequently been having symptoms since I've been gluten-free and then it happens mysteriously. I guess we are never really "safe" from gluten aside from just eating fruits, veggies, and meat :)

It is really frustrating all this detective work, but I just hope that sticking with the diet will get me better in just a little while longer! <_<

Bobs hot cereal- had that a few times without any affect but had the pancake mix one morning after being mysteriously glutened the day before and it made me worse, terrible pain and stomach cramps. I thought that it might be the Tapioca flour I was reacting to but was not sure until I had the similar but not as bad reaction after eating a Nana's Cookie bar, plus it did not taste very good. After that I tried to avoid Tapioca in stuff and only realized that the occasional bloating disappeared when I gave up breads with Tapioca in it. I don't eat much bread but just one small slice is all it takes to put my digestive system on the defense. Since then I'm wary of eating any other gluten-free blended products including sorghum and buckwheat and but rice and quinnoa seem to be OK.

I avoid Bob's Red Mill products. I have reacted to their so-called gluten-free items. I'm suspicious that they contain too much wheat (or rye or barley). It's irresponsible for them to market these items as gluten-free.

I eat their Creamy Rice hot cereal daily. I expected it to be gluten free. Still new at this so don't know if it is bothering me or not.

I think I reacted to their Mighty Tasty hot cereal and figured it was the corn that was bothering me. Now I'm wondering if it was cross contamination. I may try it later down the line when I feel I have healed and see if it still bothers me.

I thought Bob's Red Mill was a brand I could trust as long as it said Gluten Free on the package :(

Hello to all,

my daughter is very sensitive, but she conceals that she is in pain because she knows that we will put her on a strict diet for few days and there will be no sweets during that time whether gluten-free labeled or not. Since she was not telling us that her tummy hurts we did not really catch her reactions, but after recent bake out using BOB'S RED MILL products I noticed her belly really swollen and bulged out. I had a conversation and she admitted that her tummy hurt at night. My wife kept feeding her the cake for 3 day and the swelling did not subside. I ordered some Elisa tests to run check their products, I will let you know of my findings. Now that I think about it each time my wife baked using their products her tummy was swollen. Anyone knows how clean the King Arthur's brand is?

I hate the fact that the gluten-free labeling is not regulated, I am sure 90% of the current products in the market would disappear if they were really required to take proper precautions. The tests that they run are bogus. How can you rely on a small sample from large batch of a powder. It is not a liquid to be able to mix it properly to make assumptions that a sample from a large batch will reflect what really is in it. There might be pockets of high gluten concentration and they wont even know it. This is really depressing. Seems that again money is more important that human well being in this world.

Welcome to the forum! How long has your daughter been diagnosed? Many times our bodies are pretty wonky until we get a good grasp of the gluten-free diet and she may also be developing other food sensitivities (lactose intolerance is very common for a lot of us).

Some people have reportedly reacted to Bob's Red Mill products even though they test. Is your daughter sensitive to gluten-free oats by any chance? I believe they are processed in the same facility. I seem to do fine with Bob's Red Mill products so it definitely varies by individual.

King Arthur flours are certified gluten-free by the GFCO, which means they test to <10 ppm, and they are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility. http://www.gluten.net/gfco/faq.aspx

Right now the FDA has no standards as to what constitutes gluten-free. Hopefully that will change soon and it's a change that's far overdue. IMHO I don't believe that 90% of the products would disappear if they were tested. There are a lot of responsible companies manufacturing gluten-free products. I don't believe it to be as bleak as you suggest.

If your daughter continues to have problems, it might be best to go on a whole foods diet and eliminate processed foods entirely until she heals.
