I didn't know there were peanut butters that weren't gluten free :unsure: Does any one know which ones aren't safe?

Okay this is what I have come up with ... i erased what i had thought... i like to check out stuff before i post stuff...

I think I was wrong.

Hydrogenated and hydrolized are two differnt things .. and some of the peanut butters were hydrogenated and some were hydrolized. i confused them ... the hydrogenated was rapeseed and cottonseed..

so i was confused and just found one that was neither.

But due to people wanting Organic and natural.. I think that more and more food companys are going to go green and get rid of the trans fats and the wheat that my be used as fillers. just a thought.

I've yet to see a regular peanut butter that is not gluten free. This is something we are *generally* safe with.

I use Peter Pan PB....used it as a kid, and was so happy to find out as a Celiac that it was safe. We have to count our blessings for naturally gluten free foods! :)

ditto that thought - I've not yet seen any peanut butter (or other nut butter) with wheat in it. not saying there isn't one in all the world, just that it's not a high probability. (still, ALWAYS read the ingredients.)

Be careful of Low fat or Fat Free ones....they contain HVP's which are no nos (Hydrolized Vegetable Protiens).

My understanding is the trans fats law is that it can still contain it, but it must be labelled clearly. I believe a lot of companies are changing formulas to not use hydrogenated or hydrolized protiens, but not all of them!

I like Skippy Creamy. My favorite is Smuckers Natural Extra Chunky though! LOL!!!

Dear Everyone,

All Jif peanut butters are safe! They are actually made by Smucker's! I called about them a while back. This includes their Smooth Sensations! I am sad to report they no longer make the chocolate peanut butter, though! It was soooooo good! I grew up eating Jif, and was ecstatic to learn that it is safe! The low-fat version is great when you crave something sweet. It does contail corn protein and soy though.

Sincerely,

Do you like/have you tried Nutella? I think it would be similar to chocolate peanut butter. I put it on Redenbacher popcorn cakes and have to discipline myself not to eat too many of them.

Doesn't anyone eat natural peanut butter? It's just peanuts and salt! No sugars, no fillers, no hydrogenation, no gluten, nothing else at all.

It's what I've always eaten since I was little. Nothing better IMHO. Smuckers makes one, as well as Arrowhead Mills and other companies, so it shouldn't be hard to find. Even supermarket chains like that big one with the name that starts with a W has one, though I don't like it because it's not made right. Seems like they add extra oil to get aways with less peanuts. It's easy to tell when the peanut butter is on the thin side.

Haven't you ever simply added cocoa or carob powder to natural peanut butter? To me this tastes quite yummy. A dash of cinnamon adds a nice flavor too. Apple sauce is also a great addition (I recommend the natural unsweetened kind).

Dear BF,

I am not sure where to find Nutella. I heard it is delicious. I miss the Chocolate Silk so much!

I used to eat it with animal crackers! Of course, now I cannot eat those. No more pretzals either. I cannot afford the gluten free ones! Maybe someday! At least the Glutino pretzals are supposed to be good!

Dear RiceGuy,

I have had Smucker's and Arrowhead Mills natural peanut butters. They are good. The problem is, I always have them dry out in the fridge! What can I do to fix that? Any suggestions? All natural nut butters do this! Also, any stirring tips to get it nice and creamy instead of the oil on the top?

Sincerely,

Dry out? Perhaps you mean as you get closer to the bottom, there's less and less oil in it, yes? That would also be consistent with having oil on top so much. Basically, you aren't stirring it properly/enough. There's no big secret or trick involved. Just a bit of diligence is all it takes.

When I get a new jar, the first thing I do is CAREFULLY begin stirring a bit of the top. I do not try digging down much at first, as that can easily lead to spilling it. As the oil mixes in, I slowly go further until it has been completely mixed right down to the bottom. An alternative method is to simply put the jar upside down for a few days when you first get it, before putting it in the fridge or stirring. That will put the oil on the bottom of the jar, thus making it easier to stir up. I generally don't do this however, since it gets peanut butter all over the inside of the cover. Letting the jar stand upright awhile doesn't clear it out completely, so it tends to make a bit of a mess.

Stir it before each use. I tend to eat it daily until it's gone, so the oil really doesn't separate much at all. Still, I always stir it some. A knife can go down to the bottom without displacing much, so you can bring up some of the lower contents each time. That will make the consistency quite uniform right down to the last use.

If you do get lax about it and allow it to get dry, just add a bit of any light vegetable oil. I've actually spooned off the oil from a new jar, and added coconut oil in its place, which makes for an extra tasty treat. Plus a nice side-benefit of this is that since coconut oil is solid below 76 degrees, it won't separate :)

Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips have been a mainstay for this newly diagnosed celiac (10/12). I've been purchasing organic grind-in-the-store peanut butter. Now I find out that many or maybe all whole peanut manufacturers

process in facilities where wheat may have been processed. No wonder my symptoms come and go.  I can't afford $8/lb. for in the jar organic gluten-free P-butter. I love grinding my own if only the peanuts were not cross-contaminated. I did find one source for bulk whole gluten-free peanuts http://www.nuts.com/nuts/peanuts/organic-roasted-unsalted.html but are out until end of 9/13. Does anyone else have a source for gluten-free peanuts that are GMO free? I'm one who just can't support with my $$ companies like Kraft (Skippy) or Smuckers (Adam) who have sold out to Monsanto and the GMO industry.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
