Olive Oil

A friend of mine made breakfast and everything as far as I knew was gluten-free. I even checked the sausage online and it had no iffy ingredients. I got sick. Could it have been the olive oil? Are there hidden ingredients in it??

Really, olive oil should be safe. It must have been something else.

Unless she has a gluten-free household, it was probably cross contamination.

Olive oil is definitely gluten-free. So are other cooking oils.

i would also assume it was cross-contamination.

breakfast makes me think eggs (in a potentially scratched teflon pan?) or bread (in a toaster)?

hope you feel better!

I know this is a few days old thread....but I have to say ...most everything I have read and what my doc has told me is to avoid hydrogenated oils as a celiac.

EVERYTIME...I eat something with hydrogenated oil....I get sick...snickers has it.....what ever cooking oil may have it....when I eat that same food without it...I'm fine.

Unless I know its extra virgin.....or expeller pressed...I don't use it....and then I am fine.

My GI said...using anything not expeller pressed, or non-hydrogenated is like pouring motor oil over the already damaged intestines and while its not the oil itself...its the coating it puts on it....and the food that ferments and doesn't digest properly in an already damaged gi tract that causes you to get sick.

Just my newbie two cents....

There is a new oil that contains wheat germ. It is a product called OLYS and is made by Carapelli (also makers of olive oil). It is easy to avoid this product because there is a big picture of wheat on the label and it clearly says that it is made from cereals. However, it is worth asking at restaurants or at other people's homes if they are using this product. It is supposed to be healthy, and therefore might get drizzled over a salad in 'healthy' eateries.

Also...this product just came out in Canada (where I live) so I am not sure if it is available in the US or if it has the same name (sometimes they change the names from country to country.)

Hope this helps

thanks for this posting, when I eat olive oil I feel like there is oil in my mouth, even the next day.

Be aware some sell non-virgin olive oil as virgin.

I'm going to try avoiding the hydroginated oil, wonder if that's on the label.

My home is not 100% gluten free and I have never had a problem with cc. Not everyone with a mixed household has to worry about this...it depends on how well everyone works it. Olive oil is safe...never had any that posed a problem.

Please take note that this thread originated in 2006. Product information changed.

And yes, as Gemini and others have stated, Olive Oil should not be a concern for those with gluten concerns.

Olive oil was gluten-free in 2006 and remains so.
