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:

http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodi...-31106385914.04

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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water....

    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
