Vanilla

4 posts in this topic

:D Are people with celiac disease allowed to eat anything flavored w/vanilla? I was recently diagnosed w/celiac disease, and on one of the papers the dr gave me, vanilla is listed under the "aviod" colomn. Please let me know.

**also - I've been looking for a simple gluten-free brands food list. I've checked out some of the ones mentioned on previous posts. Isn't there one certain place that has one thats pretty up to date (and gets updated each year)? Or is that alot to ask for?

Thank you!

I've been gluten-free almost three years and have discovered during that time that vanilla just is not something to be worried about.

Updating a list once a year isn't enough. Probably the most up-to-date list is the one from Clan Thompson but you have to pay for it. The best way to do it is to simply call the companies yourself. If you have a cell phone, call from the store if you're not sure about a product (most have an 800 number on them)

It does get easier. I don't even carry a list with me any more when I go shopping.

old lists say to avoid vanilla, because they're usually referring to vanilla extract, which is often in an alcohol base. it used to be thought that alcohol had gluten (if the alcohol was produced by a grain we can't have), but more thorough research has noted that the gluten proteins are far too heavy to make it through the distillation process. so vanilla is ok. it's always best to check with the company (I can't reiterate that enough) because it's not impossible for a company to decide to use wheat or some other product derived from a forbidden grain as a carrier for some flavors. That's very unlikely, of course, and I don't know of it happening (outside of seasoning packages) yet.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
