Cross-contamination In My Lentils!
0

8 posts in this topic

As I sorted through the Whole Foods 365 Organic lentils to look for stones etc, I found a grain of something - wheat or barley, it looks like. I debated picking it out and going ahead, but if there's one, there's gotta be more. Sure enough I found more. No notice on the package about shared equipment being a possible source of cross-contamination. Now it makes me wonder about their other products. Nothing like throwing out a brand new package of food. I e-mailed Whole Foods to tell them they need to label their packages better. Just thought I'd let people know in case anyone else has this brand.

Don't throw the package out - take it back to Whole Foods and get your $$$ back. They have a satisfaction guaranteed policy. I've taken back several supplements that didn't agree with me and got my money back without any hassle.

That blows, definitely take it back, though, are you sure it wasn't possibly a grain of rice. Some rice types look very similar, though, in any event, there shouldn't be rice in their either(I don't eat Lentil soup, but I didn't think there was rice in it)

I've had bad luck with the 365 Brand from Whole Foods. I've reacted to all that I've tried. One of the things that I reacted to--the almond butter--was tested through the University of Nebraska and showed that it was free of gluten BUT, they (Whole Foods) told me they only test down to 200 PPM.

I stay away from that brand.

That is very interesting - I had bought some 365 Brand millet and reacted to it - thought I was intolerant of millet, but perhaps it just was contaminated. I still have the package - I think it is time to get my $$ back!

I have seen that too with other brands, and I wonder if it happens at the farm level (during harvesting on shared equiptment)

Sucks.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
    • A negative result from a biopsy that is.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
