Stop the world i want to get off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am trying to locate a COMPLETE, unedited :P list of legumes and I came across canola on one of the lists.

SAY IT ISN"T SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had no idea and if it is a legume and I've cut out all legumes because they upset my tummy and make my joints hurt, it might explain a LOT.

Does anyone know? Does anyone (Patti- I'm willing to bet money on YOU!) have a complete list of legumes?

Thanks to anyone who helps me out. I wanna scream! Canola is in everything................

I believe canola is an oilseed, not a legume.

This is from Wikipedia: Canola was developed through conventional plant breeding from rapeseed[citation needed], an oilseed plant with roots in ancient civilization. The word "rape" in rapeseed comes from the Latin word "rapum," meaning turnip. [b]Turnip, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard and many other vegetables are related to the two canola species commonly grown: Brassica napus and Brassica rapa. The negative associations with the word "rape" in North America resulted in the more marketing-friendly name "Canola".

I just found that from Wiki, I bolded and redded some info - I don't know if turnips etc are legumes, but that may help out a bit.

My gosh Bev--I don't know!!! But I did stop using it recently because I keep reading conflicting things. I use only olive oil, and Spectrum shortening. I keep a small bottle of expeller pressed Sunflower oil in the fridge so I have an unflavored oil when I need it.

Back to legumes--could this be? I tried to find a complete list of legumes last month when I suspected cashews. I was having some pretty unpleasant symptoms, and the only new thing was a nut mix of almonds, pecans (both of which are fine for me) and cashews. Well, it turns out they are a legume and my symptoms went right away when I stopped eating them.

If you come across a good, complete list--let me know!

On second thought, maybe Ursula has one....

Sorry, don't have a list, either. Canola is out for me anyway, because of high salicylate content. The only oil I can use is cold pressed sunflower oil.

OK- Well, let's start our own list of KNOWN legumes:

soy

soy products and tofu

peanuts

chickpeas/hummus

peas

beans (pinto, kidney, etc)

Also heard back from reference:

According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, there are over 18,000 plants

in the legume family so a complete list is going to be very difficult

(and probably not very helpful). I did find a list of "common

legumes":

Legume:

Acacia;

Acacia Gum;

Alfalfa;

Arabic;

Black-eyed pea;

Carob;

Carob (St. John's Bread);

Cassia;

Chick Pea;

Field Pea;

Green Bean;

Green Pea;

Guar gum;

Jack bean;

Karaya Gum;

Kidney bean;

Lentil;

Licorice;

Lima bean;

Locust Bean Gum;

Mungo Bean;

Navy Bean;

Peanut;

Peanut oil;

Pinto Bean;

Soybean; Soybean oil/flour/lecithin;

Split Pea;

String Bean;

Talca Gum;

Tamarind;

Tonka bean;

Tragancanth Gum;

Urd

Flour.

There is another more complete list from the USDA at:

<http://199.133.10.140/codesearchwebapp/(fpyhrl45db0mzr450j04y545)/

codesearch.aspx>

Type in the food code "41" and click on search and you'll get 7 pages

of legumes. I don't know whether this includes all of the common nuts

but it's worth taking a look.

Ursula, you sound like us snotty Seattlites with our "double tall, soy, half-caf, extra hot, lattes"! :lol:

I had a gluten-type reaction to Canola Oil, this is what I found earlier this week:

"...all known grain species that cause problems for celiac patients are members of the grass family. In plant taxonomy, the grass family belongs to the Plant Kingdom Subclass known as monocotyledonous plants (monocots). The only other grouping at the Subclass level is that of dicotyledonous plants (dicots). Some other species about which celiac patients have questions actually are dicots, which places them in very distant relationship to the grass family. Such species include buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, and rape. The seed of the last plant listed, rape, is not eaten, but an oil is pressed from the seeds that is becoming commonly used in cooking. This oil is being marketed as canola oil."

The article quoted about canola and other grains is about a decade old and since then it has been found that ALL of the grains named are safe for people with celiac. Buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, and rape were all examined and declared completely safe for celiacs about five years ago. REPEAT, this information is OLD and no longer applies. All celiac associations and the dietetic associations in the U.S. and Canada consider these grains safe.

So Canola oil is not made from rapeseed? Did that change? The article said Buckwheat, Amaranth, Quinoa, and Rape are VERY DISTANT from gluten - that didn't change either.

I just said I had a gluten-type reaction to it. But I don't know what is going on in my body. The article wasn't confirming a reaction - I just put it in to show that it wasn't a lentil but a seed.

Richard is right- those grains are safe for celiacs but some people don't do well with them due to other intolerances. I have a gluten-like reaction to soy. It's not gluten, but it makes me feel bad.

I think Richard just wanted to make sure that people knew that those grains, in general, are safe for celiacs but sometimes people have reactions to other things as well. I know Judy doesn't feel good when she eats canola oil.

I learned somewhere that canola the name comes from "Canadian" and "Oil" put together.

My question is, is it a seed problem? Someone said they had a RX with canola but no RX with sunflower oil. So maybe not - but I guess wheat is a seed, but so is corn, is rice? I seem to have problems with sunflower seeds, I think. I tried to do an elimination diet but I reacted to the blandest of elimination food - but maybe it was from the day before or the day before that..

Oh never mind, the human body is so weird. I mean beautiful and complex. :)

canola oil and other oils become toxic when heated. Olive oil is good in dressings, but only coconut oil is good for cooking. You can get organic virgin coconut oil at natural food stores. It is also a powerful antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal.

Ooo, I did have a reaction after trying to fry chicken coated in cornmeal in it. Don't usually seem to have a problem with canola in this healthy margarine stuff I use - oops fried potatoes in that once. Got so excited about adding more fat to my diet, got a little fry happy. I don't know anything about toxicity - but it does seem to bother me when heated to high temperatures.

I don't know about canola oil and the legume family/grass family. I do know that I can't tolerate much in the way of alternative grains either. I can eat small quantities though.

As far as oil becoming toxic.....when it is heated it changes the molecular structure, making it like an excitotoxin/free radical....therefore being bad for your body. Many oils don't have the high heat point which is reached quickly in stovetop cooking anyway.

I didn't mean to make anybody mad, but the excerpt quoted in the post made it sound like all these grains might be a threat to people with celiac. I wanted to make it clear that since this article was written it has been determined that ALL of these grains are perfectly safe. People with celiac eat all of them.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
