Hellman's Mayonnaise
0

17 posts in this topic

I saw where someone on this board said that Hellman's Mayonnaise is gluten-free and it also says that it is on their site BUT Gluten Guard claims that it has gluten because it has disodium.

Does anyone know for sure which it is and if disodium is a bad ingredient.

Thanks!

Disodium is not an ingredient. It is the first word of a two word ingredient. What is the second word?

I use Best Foods (same as Hellman's West of the Rockies) without issue. It is a Unilever company and I thought that is one of the companies that clearly labels.

Gluten Guard has disodium listed as what causes it to be listed as containing gluten.

On the label it says calcium disodium EDTA.

Thanks!

Hellman's Mayo is safe.

What they (the gluten guard) is probably referring to is "Disodium Wheatgermamido Peg-2 Sulfosuccinate" not just disodium. That was listed on celiac.com's list of forbidden ingredients. http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodi...-31106385914.04

Calcium disodium is safe:

these lists are great----refer to them often!

hope this helps clear up the confusion.

Thanks, Laura.

From reading your list of sensitivities I see that we've got a lot of the same food issues. I'm also unable to eat tomatoes, potatoes and pretty much anything fresh.

Did you ever consider IBS as a cause?

Umm... 'Calcium disodum' should not be on that list. It's not a compound, it's a typo. There should be a third word that tells you what the entire compound is. There are many compounds that could start with "Calcium disodium", and some of them are probably not safe.

(I have a degree in Chemistry.)

Thanks, Katherine. Maybe you could email/PM Scott (admin) since he is the "owner" of the lists and discuss that with him to update it! Every little it helps.

cycler-IBS is often just a term that they use when they don't know what is causing the problems. I was told I had IBS over 2 years ago...turns out I don't, I had Celiac. They gave me all kinds of other diagnoses---none of which I had. Go figure.

Unfortunately, I wish it were that simple for me. But thank you for the suggestion.

I was told by someone that IBS stands for: I Be Stumped. I believe that to be true, if a doctor doesn't know, he tells you IBS so you have something to start with. I also was diagnosed with IBS 25 yrs ago.

Yep. Another version is "I'm Basically Stumped"....

BTW, I told this to my doctor last week when I was in for a physical. She had an intern with her and she was explaining the differences between me (quite the study example I am!!! LOL!) and the person they saw before me who had IBS. I said "Oh, we in the celiac world call that the "I'm Basically Stumped" diagnosis" and she cracked up laughing - she thought that was great!

Gluten guard is a downloadable program to your computer or PDA which lists gluten free products or what is in a product for them to determine that it isn't gluten free. There is a free version and one that you buy but there are too many mistakes for it to be worth it.
