Frozen Veggies?
0

12 posts in this topic

Hello all,

still being new to all of this, I was at the grocery store today and didn't think to ask if it is okay to buy any frozen veggies?(plain nothing on them) would they be manufactured in same places as wheat or anything? Also is buying any kind of rice okay? Or are some rices manufactured in same places as wheat? I just want to make sure I am not contaminating myself! Thanks

Rachel

You'd have to contact the individual manufacturers to determine whether or not foods are produced in facilities with gluten-containing foods or not. Of course, there's risk with most regular foods you eat that there is contamination (for example, FritoLays)....most companies will warn you of contamination, not necessarily because it's likely, but just in case you do get contaminated, they can't be blamed for not warning you. I have whatever rice is there and don't eat frozen veggies.....I'm not much of a vegetable person to begin with. Sorry I can't be of more assistance, but I'm not sure about the details with the rice manufacturing

There was a "rumor" about a company that used wheat in the fortification added to its rice, but I've never seen the source. I've not heard of any company confirm the use of wheat in any manner in rice, but when in doubt, do call the company. (Lundberg Farms says that theirs is gluten-free, I know that much, but they are often pricey.)

okay thanks, I just wasn't sure if I should even bother calling companies that distribute frozen veggies, if there is no contamination risk. Also, does anyone know if butterball deli meat is gluten free? I called and their business hours are mon-fri, I swore I read they were, and I ate some today, and didn't feel so well after consuming it

Oh, shoot, this is really frustrating.....I have an Oscar Mayer list of gluten-free foods, but I haven't been able to get into my aol for days.......I get e-mail from aol.com, but I can't get stuff from "my filing cabinet" or my favorites........I know I have their whole list, but I freeze up whenever I click on it--I'll get this straightened up in a few days, but I wish I could provide that list.........

Oscar Mayer is a division of Kraft, though, so they should follow the same labeling procedures....therefore, you should be able to find out by looking on the package. They have many gluten-free products, but you should read the labels..........if I get the list, I'll post it....

I don't know if you want to rely on my memory for this one :-D but I called Butterball while on a business trip once (since that's the brand of turkey I picked up to cook with that night), and they said that they always label wheat - the way Kraft does.

Thanks so much, hopefully the butterball was okay, I can't get ahold of any manufactures that I wanted to check on today, because of the holiday. I have had HORRIBLE luck with email, I have emailed several companies like horizon organic, and the company that makes the dish soap my mom uses, and others, and no reply in over a week!

Yeah......all the companies say that they're going to reply in 2-3 business days -- when I went on that e-mail spree I got some replies in that time, but I got one just a few days ago (that's like..........2 weeks later or something)......they take longer than they say they do.

Most companies aren't very good at e-mail, i find calling is much more effective

It's more effective if you need a quick answer, but I find that it's sometimes easiest to pull up a few websites and shoot out a standard e-mail to everyone -- depends on if I'm just asking generally or wanting a direct, quick answer

    • 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.
