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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
