Thanks

Maize is derived from corn and not a gluten concern.

Help it's back <_<

 

My stomach has been good for about 2 weeks.  Tonight I had a chicken and veg stir fry with Sweet Chilli & Garlic Stir Fry Sauce, this is the only processed food/sauce I have had in 2 weeks.  Within an hour and half after eating, my stomach became uncomfortable and I felt sick, then low and behold my tummy blew up, back pain and yawning my head off. 

 

Seriously, what is going on I have looked up Maize Starch; but that is meant to be ok, right?  Please :(  tell me what I have missed?

 

My doctor 2 weeks ago told me to keep off Gluten, Wheat, Milk, white rice and pototoes.  I have not been tested for Coeliac as yet, as I took myself of wheat a month ago.  Next week I am planning to reintroduce gluten etc, as directed by my doctor so I can be tested in 5 weeks.

Sweet Chilli & Garlic Stir Fry Sauce

Ingredients:
Water, Sugar, Minced Chilli Paste (5%)(Chilli Peppers, Water, Salt, Acetic Acid), Chinese Rice Vinegar (3%), Maize Starch, Spirit Vinegar, Garlic (2%), Sake, Salt, Chilli Powder, Colour:Paprika Extract.

This topic is more than six years old.

"Maize" is the scientific name for corn, and is used in many European countries as the name instead of "corn." Corn is gluten-free.

During the healing process, you may have reactions to foods, even though they are gluten-free. Perhaps the chilli?

If you are in Canada or the USA, modified starch is not a worry unless the word "wheat" appears on the label. MFS is almost never wheat, but if it is the law requires that wheat be disclosed on the label.

Thank you for your reply. oops I am still blindly stumblying around the site. :unsure:

 I checked their website and it had wheat gluten in it.  The allergy warning on the package didn't say wheat, but on the website it stated Allergy Warning - Wheat Gluten. And here's the thing...on another page it says it is suitable by showing the cross grain.  Confused? :blink:  I am

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      By now, you've likely heard about people going gluten-free, ridding their diets of foods such as pastas, breads, cereals, and processed foods that ... View the full article
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      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.
