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.

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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!

      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.
