Gluten And Dairy Free Plum Sauce
0

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a safe plum sauce? I know that the Thai Kitchen's plum sauce is gluten and dairy free, but I would have to order it online. I would rather just buy a sauce at the grocery store if there was a safe brand there.

VH Plum Sauce. We use this. It's more for dipping, but it's available everywhere. (Only in Canada, eh? Pity.)

Oops. Edited to say that I don't know if it's Dairy free, but it's Gluten free. It's manufactured by ConAgra. I couldn't find an ingredient list on the website, and I'm at work, so I can't check my bottle.

Thanks! That's great! :) I should have thought about VH, I guess I forgot that they made a plum sauce.

I wanted to know what other VH sauces were gluten-free so I emailed VH about an hour ago and this was their response. Very quick!

My e-mail:

I have celiac disease and a wheat allergy and I can get severe reactions

from very small amounts of gluten (wheat, barley, rye, or oats) and

wheat . I have used your VH soy sauces with no problems, but I was

wondering if you had a list of other sauces that are gluten free as

well. Also, if any sauces are gluten free, are they produced on the same

lines as gluten containing sauces? Thank you for your time.

Their e-mail:

Thank you for contacting ConAgra Foods Canada Inc., with your questions.

therefore we strongly suggest the ingredient label be reviewed with each

I forgot to ask them about dairy. Ah well, dairy is usually quite noticeable in ingrendient lists.

I don't know if I am reading this right but I am reading it as Act II popcorn and Hunt's Tomato sauce and paste have gluten in them.

I thought that at first too, but I think that it's just the Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce that contains gluten. I think that the sentance is just confusing, they should have started a new sentance. I've had the hunt's tomatoe sauce recently and didn't notice a reaction.

Carrie's right. All sauces gluten free EXCEPT Teriyaki. Then it goes on to the next item. Pam is gluten-free EXCEPT the kind that says "with flour" or "with wheat" or something like that in the title of the product. ConAgra is a company that will always put in bold: Contains: Soy, or Contains: Wheat, Contains: place top 8 allergen here. They just have a poor layout on their gluten-free list. I got mine by snail mail and it's all jumbled together. I had to input it into the computer by hand and lay it all out neatly for our binder.

I tried the Szechwan sauce in a recipe last night and so far I'm fine. I am very excited about all these new sauces and recipes to try out now! Here is their website if anyone is interested in trying out their sauces and recipes: http://www.vhsauces.com/index.php?language=en

    • 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.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
