Lemonade
0

16 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have Celiac Disease and have been on the gluten-free diet since March (That's when I found out).

Yesterday I got really sick and the only thing different I had was lemonade (I know it wasn't anything else I had because I have been eating the other foods with no problem for awhile now). :(

Anyway, I came across this website:

http://www.steaknshake.com/nutritional_inf...dex.asp?p=7&t=7

and if you scroll down to the lemonade, it says that it has wheat in it..........

I was just wondering if anyone else has had bad reactions to lemonade and does Minute Maid actually have wheat in their lemonade?

I've heard recently that Coke/ Minute Maid no longer says that all their products are gluten free but I have no confirmation on this.... Does anyone know anymore details?

Thanks :)

-Carrie

Country Time Lemonades are gluten-free.

Last time I checked with Minute Maid everything was fine, but it has probably been a year since I checked. Maybe someone has some more current info.

which leads me to a question. I've been reading labels. Do they put things in food and NOT list them? How terrible. Hugs, Carol B

Crystal Light is gluten-free. As a matter of fact, whenever you read a Kraft label, the flavorings are gluten-free unless they say "wheat" or something like that in parens. Crystal Light has some drink mixes that aren't lemonade, but has a pink lemonade and a regular lemonade, as well.

I am pretty new to this myself. My son 3 1/2 was diagnosed a few weeks ago. I just called Tropicana and Minute Maid today. Tropicana said that their 100% juices (pure premium) are all okay except for the pineapple and the banana (they have natural flavoring which is not okay). Even the calcium added ones are gluten-free.

Minute Maid said that only the 100% oj nothing added is okay. None of the other juices are okay as of now (she said they would know for sure by the end of the year.)

If you like lemonade, Wegmans brand is okay and Capri Sun (if they make a lemonade).

Hope that helps...

Carol,

Some companies do indeed hide ingredients. Some things like modified food starch and natural flavors can be wheat-based without listing it (usually they aren't but they can be). You have to educate yourself (look at celiac.com for the safe and forbidden ingredient lists) and you have to call companies about specific products.

Hi Richard. I understand about things like modified food starch, flavorings etc etc. But if you know what all the ingredients are and none contain gluten could there still be a problem with them not showing it on the label even under a different name? Does this make sence? Hugs, Carol B

I'm not sure what you're asking, Carol. Maybe if you ask it a different way?

I was afraid of that. Will they list the unwanted ingredients in some form (maybe not recognizable) or is it possible they won't even bother to list them. i.e tuna,salt,water. Is it possible they put wheat in it but just didn't bother to list it on the can? Another wards, if I recognize ALL the ingredients as safe, do I need to worry about what WASN'T listed? Hugs, Carol B

Let me put it this way. Are we contacting companies to find out what that natural flavoring is or what that modified food starch is OR are we contacting them to see if there is something NOT listed on the label? In that case I guess I would need to contact them for EVERY thing under the sun except fresh meat (hopefully) and veggies/fruit. :-) Hugs, Carol B

I can't quote you the exact rules but if wheat is some major ingredient they can't just not list it. And I seriously doubt these companies will tell you something is gluten-free when they know it isn't. When I call a company I call to ask if it has wheat, rye, barely or oats anywhere in it. I don't ask specifically about the source of the MFS or natural flavor because I don't care if it isn't wheat.

Thanks for the info on Minute Maid raeofsun..... :)

I guess we can't trust anything by them but their 100% juices (Or until the end of the year, when they know more about their products).

So back to my original question. If it has understandable ingedients such as beef, potatoes, carrots, onion and celery salt (veggie soup) and nothing that would suggest an unkown, is it safe to eat or do we have to call the company on everything to make sure something is there that wasn't listed? Hugs, Carol B

I think this is a personal choice. Some people call about absolutely everything and grill every person about what else is made in the plant, line cleaning techniques etc.. I've now been gluten-free for nearly three years and if a company either tells me it will clearly list any gluten or if the ingredient list is as simple as your example, I don't call.

cheers

richard, roanoke, va.

    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not..

      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.
