Yogurt?
0

14 posts in this topic

I was just at back to school night and one of the aides asked if my son was the one with Celiac. She went on to say that she noticed I send in yogurt for him and that she is a Celiac as well and was told by her doctor not to eat yogurt. I have read the ingredients and they appear safe. Am I wrong?

I have read and heard somewhere that we should not eat yoghurt. But I think that is just being extra careful. Not all yoghurts have gluten, but some will. I check and recheck the yoghurts I eat, and have never had any reaction to it, except once, when I think it might have been the favour or colouring.

I tend to stick to the same yoghurt, it is plain and seems to have the least additives, but I add whatever I like to it and have no problem with that.

Again, I don't know where this information is comming from....

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

Yoplait , without the crumbs and such, is gluten-free.

I eat and drink (the smoothies) Yoplait all the time. I have never had a problem. I have heard somewhere on here, I think, that Dannon will not guarentee that their flavors are gluten free. I think I remember something about their plain yogurt being ok. I am sure others can enlighten us about the Dannon.

Danon is completely untrust worthy in thier ingrendients from a gluten stand point, there is no way to know if they are safe or not, they much around with defintions, and make up new terms. I personaly will not knowingly eat anything with the Danon name on it, and certinlay would not risk my son to them.

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

In America you have to add OATS to that list as all mainstream oats in America are contiminated with wheat. I also always add malt to that list, just for carlity since its often listed by itself.

After finishing a round of antibiotics, I grabbed a yogurt container to try and replace some of the bacteria in my gut. It was Breyer's Cream Savers Strawberries and Cream. I read the label, but evidently not carefully enough. I could have sworn it said "corn starch," but I started feeling glutening symptoms afterward. I checked the ingredients on the website and it contains modified food starch, a big red flag for gluten in my book. :( I feel foolish because I was doing so well up til now. I hope it passes soon...

There are several yogurts that are safe for celiacs to eat. Yoplait (made by Kraft), Mountain High Yougurt (says gluten-free on the container and is lower in sugar than other brands), and Kroger yogurts (if I remember correctly VydorScope called and found out they were safe). Hope this helps.

If you have a yogurt maker you can make your own and know that it is safe. Does anyone do that? :rolleyes:

I believe that's true as long as you make sure the live cultures you buy are grown from gluten-free stuff.

Last year, when I was very sick(Spent basically May, June and July in the hospital) I was having Dannon Strawberry yogurt I had called the company a few times, and they basically wouldn't say it was or wasn't. But, it didn't make me sick. I was in a low enough state of health that even tiiny cross contaimination was enough to make me horrible ill. But then the meds I was taking were harsh too.

I was one of the few people that I think had a good hospital exp. with the food. The hospital had a gluten free menu. Two of my nurses had celiac children. They had a briefing with all the nurses that worked shifts on the floor and made them aware of what I could and couldn't eat. They did send my plate back a number of times I didn't even know. They also had two different head chefs of the kitchen come up and talk to me. It was Both chefs said they would prepare my meal themselves. The only time my meal was sent back, was breakfast time, when a few didn't realize they couldn't use the deep fry'ers. But the nurses caught it each time(ok once they didn't but they had already warned me)

I was basically told by the hospital nutrionist. order whatever you want, ignore what the "daily menu" has. Order of the gluten free menu, they can make you whatever you want. I enjoyed a plain chicken breast and baked potato(or two) for lunch and dinner. I had eggs for breakfast, and pan fried hash browns (Ore-Ida)

A few of the nurses even went across the street during lunch breaks and bought those delicious Wild Oats gluten free chocolate chip cookies for me. My Dr. actually ordered me to eat half a package of those cookies a day( I had lost 50 pounds in about a month. was only waying 118 for a bit)

In any event I rambled too much. The Danon didn't bother me, the strawberry kind that is. But then they special ordered Yoplait for me after one nurse just said I should have that instead of Danon.

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
