Malt Flavoring is made from barley, so it is definitely gluten-full!

Hi

I've been going gluten-free for past 2 months, but I think I may have found a problem ingredent in my instant potato mix. It's called MALTODEXTRIN, and when I checked out the safe/unsafe food list here it said that DEXTRIN is not safe, but MALTODEXTRIN was safe.

Apparently, if it's made in the USA, it's supposed to be from corn starch or potato starch (per FDA regs) BUT, the manufacture's might change it to wheat starch or gluten-based enzyme, in the future (article written May 1997). (from Celiac.com)

The product is made by the food chain, Stop & Shop, and it's called: 100% IDAHO, Sour Cream & Chives, Mashed Potatoes. With my long hours (job & commute) I need something quick & easy to make when I get home.

Unfortunately, I've used it for several different evening meals, and now I'm all bloated up and have the gas attacks again! And here I was just feeling really good about my body!

Has anyone else used this product or can tell me if it's the maltodextrin that's effecting me?

Thanks for any help you can give!

So why is it they say that Rice Krispies is okay? It has malt flavoring.

Thanks!

A few topics in one post.

Not all malt flavoring has gluten but it usually does. I ALWAYS assume it's made from barley, but in fact you can malt any grain. I can't remember the product, but recently somebody on another forum picked up a product that said "gluten free" and was appalled to see malt flavoring listed. She was getting ready to blast the company but picked up the phone and discovered the flavoring was from malted corn.

I'm not sure who is telling Deanna Rice Krispies is gluten-free. It's not. The malt flavoring is from barley.

As for maltodextrin, I don't worry about it in food made in the U.S. Despite its name, maltodextrin has neither malt nor dextrin in it (just as buckwheat doesn't have wheat).

Ive never heard that Rice Crispies are ok, Ive always known them to contain gluten, along with other "regular" cereals.

I read it in a supposed gluten-free recipe (for Rice Krispie treats), and I also saw it on a "gluten-free shopping list" that I printed off the internet. I never bought them, though, because I saw "malt flavoring" on the label. Maybe I should call the company and find out what kind of malt flavoring it is. I would love to be able to have Rice Krispie treats.

ah... if you implied it from a recipe, it may have been because the person who wrote the recipe assumed that you'd get gluten-free rice crispies. The thing is... Kellog's Rice Crispies (the popular brand with the three little... whatever they are... as a logo) are NOT gluten-free. But there are a number of natural brands of the exact same type of thing that ARE gluten-free, and don't have malt flavoring. (I think they're usually called Crisp Rice, or something, due to trademark restrictions, but it's the same concept of cereal.) These brands you can use to make gluten-free rice crispy treats.

Thanks for clearing that up. When someone notes "Rice Krispies" I naturally think of Kellog's Rice Krispies, because it was not clarified. I am new to all this so bear with me...=).

Thanks!

:lol:

I thought the same thing when I first started out. Just wait... you're going to post a recipe of your own six months from now using a "generic" name, thinking it's obvious! :-) It's all part of the learning (heck, sometims, I think it's just our own little private "language". ;-) )

Just to simplify, I wrote to Kellogg's and they told me that NONE of their cereals are gluten-free.

To GinEva; have you considered the possibility that it is something else in the mix causing your bloat? Those instant potato mixes with cheese or sour cream flavorings have many times more lactose in them than a regular glass of milk. Often times I have read the ingredients on one of these to find many different sources of lactose added to it, in the forms of concentrated milk solids, whey, powdered cheese or cream flavorings, lactose sugar etc.

Even people who can tolerate normal, moderate amounts of lactose may have symptoms of lactose intolerance after eating such a concentrated amount of lactose!

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      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.
