I've noticed that I can't handle peanut butter very well. I've always attributed it to the fat content, because I don't digest fat well at all, but now I'm thinking it might be a food intolerance. I threw out my peanut butter today.

I don't eat any other form of peanuts. Is there anything else related to this I should watch for?

Peanuts and Soybeans are from the same family. If you are allergic or intolerant to soy the likelihood of becoming allergic/intolerant to peanuts is higher. I don't know percentages. Also if you don't use natural peanut butter maybe the hydrogenated oils are bothering you.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Hi Elizabeth--I also react to peanut butter :angry: I actually am intolerant to all legumes (which includes peanuts). How do you do with soy, beans, string beans, peas, chic peas? Those are all legumes, (I seem to be intolerant to every one of them) Not long ago, I asked Robb over in the Sports/Fitness Forum about legumes and he said that people who have autoimmune disease sometimes have problems with legumes--and most lectins. He explains in the thread titled "Introduction".

I also have a problem with peanut butter :( darn it that it's so good.

Another angle outside of what Patti (jerseyangel) and Andrea mentioned is the mold content of peanuts. If you are allergic/sensitive to molds then peanut butter can be a problem.

Thanks for the replies!!!

I was eating JIF - I'd seen somone say that it was gluten-free? And it was a new container - no CC issues.

I don't usually have problems with beans and I try to limit my intake of soy, but it doesn't seem to bother me when I do eat it.

I'm sure the mold content and the hydrogenated oils could be a factor.

Interesting. Thanks everyone!!!

I eat Jif with no problems. Is the jar you are eating from possibly contaminated?

I'm like patti- no legumes including peanut butter which KILLS me as I LOVE it. I wonder a lot if it had to do anything with how much I ate before being diagnosed because I had NO appetite and it was the only thing I craved and helped me keep some weight on. I miss it!

Also, try a new jar of it before you give up totally- go for one without soybean oil (I think Peter Pan is noy soybean oil based).

I can't handle peanuts, beans or peas either. I eat almond butter instead. More expensive but yummy.

Peanuts have a high mold content, so if you're allergic to mold, that may be the problem. I'm sensitive to them and fruit juice because of the mold. I use almond butter and do fine with it.

I switched to cashew butter.

Do you have problems with other peanut products like anything fried in peanut oil? That might be another way to test for the peanut issue.

I can't handle fat very well, so I don't eat anything with oil. Peanut butter is really the only form of peanuts I got (since I just cut it out).

Wow, I just posted a new topic relating closely to this one. I read the first few pages of posts before posting and somehow missed this thread!

I just wanted to say that I also have a major problem with peanuts, peanut butter, soy, lentils, and beans. Peas don't seem to bother me much. But, Elizabeth, it's not just you, as you can see!

Almond butter is very good, as someone else mentioned. I have also heard cashew butter is great.

I just recently had to give up peas - just as mine in the garden were coming on too - I love those fresh peas, right out of the garden.
