I use Jar-o-dophilus, and I'm pretty sure it's Gluten-free Casein-free.

The best probiotic I've found is from USA Labs. I always keep mine in the refrigerator. Also, for anyone that has children...they have a Jr. version that's in a powder base of rice starch. It's the only one that is gluten-free, df, & soy free that I've ever found. Often the childrens tablets have soy, sugar etc. in them. I use the probioplus DDS version.

Here's the website....

I was under the impression that Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) were bad because they promoted the growth of bad bacteria... am I wrong about that?

I just got this off of the primal defense webpage:

"Primal Defense™ is a probiotic product made up of Homeostatic Soil Organisms™ (HSOs), predigested green super foods, and ionic minerals. It is available in caplets or powder form. One caplet is equal to one level scoop of powder and breakdown occurs in less than 15 minutes. You can test this yourself in a glass of water. Primal Defense™ is a vegetarian product and is gluten free. "

terps19,

I'm still learning as well....One of the websites I gave you in my previous posts was from "Whole Approach." Their a company and support group that deal with candida overgrowth. Tarilee is the health professional that moderates the forum. I've attached a couple of posts were she speaks about FOS. I guess it's like a lot of things...it depends on which side of the fence your on. :lol: I'm glad you mentioned it, I've learned a lot by reading through the posts as well! :D

I think the issue is synthetic vs. natural sources of FOS. :unsure:

http://wholeapproachforums.com/groupee/for...4471#8636034471

This is a post that you may have to scroll down some. There's a post by Tarilee and pbitter that were helpful to me. http://wholeapproachforums.com/groupee/for...7574#6676017574

I think most of the natural FOS is derived from chicory root. Lately it seems like chicory root is showing up in lots of gluten free mixes such as Pamela's Amazing Bread Mix and her Luscious Chocolate Cake Mix. I know this is limited info. but I don't have long to type tonight. Hope this helps..... :)

I was using Acidophilus Pearls™

by Enzymatic Therapy:

I am Casein intolerant Lactobacillus acidophilus - what is that?! :unsure:

I use the CVS brand and it is gluten-free, cf and free of some other stuff as well!

I think the CVS brand has Lactobacillus acidophilus in it. Isn't that a form of dairy?

My brand says this on it's FAQ:

"I am lactose intolerant and allergic to milk protein. Can i still use Bio-K+ ?

Yes. In fact, research shows that a daily consumption of fermented dairy foods containing selected bacteria strains can reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance and dairy allergies. This happens because the lactose is fragmented or "predigested" by the friendly bacteria and their production of digestive enzymes. However, it is recommmended that those concerned, start off with 1 tsp. The first day and increase gradually to one full bottle a day, according to the suggested consumption.

I am alergic to casein. Can i still use Bio-K+ ?

Yes, casein is predigested and transformed by the bacteria into peptides wich are easier to assimilate. Also, casein is not to be confused with Lb. casei, the special strain found in Bio-K+. Lb. casei is one of the two active friendly bacteria in Bio-K+.

The CVS brand: It says no milk, or lactose right on the front. And when I googled lactobacillus acidophilus this is what I got.

Lactobacillus acidophilus (L. acidophilus) is the most commonly used probiotic, or "friendly" bacteria. Such healthy bacteria inhabit the intestines and vagina and protect against the entrance and proliferation of "bad" organisms that can cause disease. This is accomplished through a variety of mechanisms. For example, the breakdown of food by L. acidophilus leads to production of lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other byproducts that make the environment hostile for undesired organisms. L. acidophilus also produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars. People who are lactose intolerant do not produce this enzyme. For this reason, L. acidophilus supplements may be beneficial for these individuals.

This is good news! I'm holding a bottle of it right now and it lists barley grass as the first ingredient - they must have changed their "recipe" since I bought it. My bottle also says "100% vegetarian", but not "gluten-free".

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      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.
