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.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
