So i was in the store shopping for breakfast, i figure eh may as well restock on my eggs, so i was looking thru the eggs and i was thinking hmmm i wonder if brown eggs are good, luckly my gluten-free opend them up to inspect the eggs because there it was a ingrediant list

Flax seed rolled in wheat, thats what it said so what do they inject them? wtf

so my question is, i got some white eggs from the same company there was no ingrediant list, should this be just eggs or should i just throw away them and find a new brand? i dont wanna eat them and then find out there injected with wheat gah that was some bs are all brown eggs like that?

Lister,

I never look at the ingredence in eggs before. Just thought they were just plain eggs.

I do think there is no difference between brown and white eggs...just the breed of the chicken.

I think that you are safe eating the eggs.

Here is something for you to try:

Scramble eggs in a bowl (how many you want to eat)

Add a little half&half, or milk

Add a little cream cheese

Add some McCormicks dried onions

Add some Oscar Meyer Real Bacon Bitts

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix it up real well and SLOWLY stir and cook on top of the stove....too good

Fry up some Jimmy Dean Sausage and some Oreida hash browns...and your cooking. ALL GLUTEN FREE. :)

That is really weird! Maybe the gluten is from what they fed the chicken before it laid the eggs. I know that some companies make egg white that says gluten free on it. I don't know what to tell you about the white eggs. I can't imagine how they would inject wheat into them.

interesting. I've seen omega-3 eggs where they feed the hens flax meal, but not where they inject the eggs directly. very odd.

I'm with Tiffany on this one. I've never seen anything but eggs where chickens were fed flax seed to add omega 3 to the eggs.

Shouldn't matter what they were fed. The flax eggs just have more nutrition because of the omega 3. White or brown eggs would be fine.

then those eggs are fine, they don't have gluten in them. the chicken eating wheat is not going to put gluten in the egg, because the chicken is going to digest the protein.

Some brown eggs are also just that -- brown eggs. Omega-3 fatty acids are a very good anti-inflammatory thing to eat, as well.

I'm particularly fond of cream cheese in eggs myself -- I'd throw in some avocado as well, but I'm in Florida where they're really cheap right now.

The only thing I've heard about apple juice is that it's actually something that's supposed to help soothe an upset stomach.

    • Welcome to the board. Celiac is not a death sentence by any means. I was undiagnosed from age 4 to age 46. Words can not describe the hell of the last 15 years before I was finally diagnosed. I am alive and healthier than I have ever been. There are others who also went years and are now doing well. There are some who had complications of cuorse but not everyone does. Thankfully it sounds like your doctors have found this relatively early. You should recover in time. Do be sure to read that Newbie thread and if you can get the others you live with to read it also. You can live safely in a mixed house but you to have to take precautions to be safe. As the others stated you do need to get back on gluten until all celiac related testing is done.  You don't have to eat a lot but if your going to get biopsies done you do have to have some daily. Most of all try to relax. Having celiac does take some getting used to but you will be okay.
    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
