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.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
