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,

NoGluGirl

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.

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage. Please read our Newbie 101 & follow the links contained within the threads. This will give you a ton of valuable information. Just click on it:  
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Okay, this makes more sense now. Was the celiac test in 2014 part of the checking to find out what was wrong with you which resulted in the Barrets dx?  NO, a colonoscopy will not diagnose celiac disease at all. The biopsies for celiac disease are taken in the small intestine not the colon. You need to get your records, both past & present. If you could post them here then we'd have a much better idea of what's going on and be more able to tell you what you might be looking at. When we say you might not have been given the right celiac blood panel, we mean the FULL, CURRENT panel and not just a primary screening. The screening is good but it does miss celiacs. We have members who tested negative on all but the DgP portions so when one has a situation like yours, you need to cover all the bases & have the complete panel done. Here it is: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG   If you post your results on the blood work make sure to post the reference ranges listed because different labs have different ranges. It would be imperative to know if the doc took biopsies for celiac when he was doing the endoscopy. How many & where exactly from? Some docs just rely on visual & that's not good enough to dx celiac disease. Biopsies are the only way.

      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.
