Peanut Butter

12 posts in this topic

Can we have regular peanut butter OR do we need to buy gluten free peanut butter, if there is such a thing? I seem to be okay with JIF but everyone at work, no one with celiac disease, say's "you can eat peanut butter"? So now I'm asking you.

Jif is gluten-free, and so is skippy. Yes, you can eat normal peanut butter. I don't think I've ever seen a peanut butter with gluten, actually, but always read labels. Don't share pb containers with anyone else, because those containers get contaminated with bread crumbs.

I love peanut butter and eat it everyday. I use Jif creamy, and have never reacted to it. Thank goodness because with everything I had to give up I don't think I could my peanut butter :o

You know, sometimes when I'm reading the ingredients to food, I then decide that it is gluten-free, but I'm still not eating it!!! ;) Pb was one of those items, so I ended up using natural peanut butter because it's just salt and peanuts. Actually, I usually use almond butter because of my mold allergy. I mark the top of my jar with a green "g. f." so that everyone knows not to put a contaminated knife in it.

I've given up a lot of foods--but I have to say that one of the hardest was peanut butter! I have just ordered a jar of Maranatha Raw Almond Butter (no stores around here have it) and hope that it will fill the peanut butter void :P I gotta have something to put on my apple slices...

Reese's is the best peanut butter I've ever had. They have it at Walmart and it is gluten-free

In the organic section of my Giant Eagle they have stuff made by "The Peanut Butter Company" (I'm pretty sure that's it.) They have Cinnamon Rasin and White Chocolate, I know you can order other flavors too. Both are divine and gluten and casein free. I eat them right out of the jar.

Hey there! I love the Marantha raw almond butter...and eat it all the time. I just found WALNUT BUTTER.

Oh man, is it ever good. It's $9/jar, and not a big jar like regular peanut butter - half of that. Wow. I actually use PB on my apples because the WB is too expensive and tastes too good - that I eat out of the spoon, with or without some yummy jam on the swpoon.

You don't eat grains, right? Me too and it's tough to figure it all out. BUT, after 4-1/2 days, I already feel better. I'm still bloated, but it doens't hurt anymore. AND I don't feel as though I need naps now...I really like that. Anyway, try the walnut butter next time you win big at the casino. (If you need a brand name, I'll PM you or something - it's at home.

Hi Bully4You--thanks for the tip on the walnut butter, it sounds good. :) I love walnuts--probably moreso than almonds! Yes, I'm grain free. I do feel better this way. I have tried to incorporate rice and corn a few times, but the GI symptoms come right back. I'm used to eating this way now, so it's not a big deal. ;)

    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
