Cracker Jacks
0

10 posts in this topic

I've been eating cracker jacks for a while now. They are gluten free, but are made on the same lines as other products with gluten. The lines are washed after gluten has been in contact with them. So a slight residue may remain and get onto the cracker jacks. I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with cracker jacks. Could they be slowing down my healing process? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks,

-Brian

Brian,

I don't know about Cracker Jacks brand, but I ate my entire little tim of caramel popcorn with nuts I had ordered from the local boy scouts (before I was DX celiac but then they delivered shortly after, same story with girl scout cookies!) Oh, and I ate them over a period of a week or two, not all at once. Anyway, I did not have any problems, but I may be too new to the diet. I actually wouldn't mind tracking down another tin to munch on.

Where are the scouts when you NEED them?

I have eaten cracker jacks without a problem. Although it has been awhile!

As for the scouts you will have to wait until next year! I have a cub scout who sells and I eat everything except the tins that have pretzels!

I know this post is very old and I wanted to bring it back to life =)

Has anyone experienced any problems with plain old cracker jacks? I am just curious and any answers/info would be much appreciated.

Thanks! =)

It's often by the chips or nuts. I can eat the entire bag in record time.

    • New to this gluten-free life
      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr
    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      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.
