Arrowroot?

I've been gluten-free for almost a year now, and I'm extraordinarily careful about what I eat. I am also lactose intolerent and can't eat any corn products. There is a gluten-free restaurant and bakery that I went to today, and I bought some gluten-free snickerdoodles. Mmmmmmm. I asked about the corn content (there was none), however there was arrowroot in them. I've never had anything with arrowroot, but since it was in so many other gluten-free products, I didn't forsee a problem. I had a reaction from the cookies the way I would if they had flour in them. Anyone else have a problem with arrowroot too?

Are you sure they didn't have dairy in them? Just a thought...

They were also egg and dairy free. Good idea though!

It took me awhile to figure it out, but I am intolerant to tapioca. I thought it was dairy for the longest time, but eventually ruled out dairy as a problem. You may have to do some trials with arrowroot to see if it is bothering you.

This is an interesting discussion! I have concidered myself being lactos intolerant for some years, but this fall I've had some pretty bad "stomach attacs", and here i Sweden we have a lot of non-lactos products. However, I started getting stomach aches, heart rushes, cold sweatings from these products and found out that some of them, like yoghurt, have tapioka. Could I have the same problem??

I'm another who is intolerant to tapioca. It's in so many gluten-free things.....

Tapioca actually makes me sicker than gluten--as soon as I begin to chew, my mouth dries up (!) and it gives me incredible nausea.

For me it takes half an hour, then I get cramps on the left side of the stomach, feel nauseous (but not in a flu-y way), friends say I turn completely white (when its a bad attac) and I have trouble to concentrate on what people are saying, I can even get tinitus.

Once I thought I was going to die, because we had picked mushrooms and made a soup, and I stayed up all night surfing the Internet for images of mushrooms, beacuse I thought I had eaten a poisinous one. HAHA!

This is so exciting, for the first time in 10 years things are actually making sense.

HEURECA! Or should I shout TAPIOCA! http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/style_emoti...fault/laugh.gif

I discovered my problems in the completely safe to eat cookies, that it was the vanilla that was used. I don't know what it is derived from but I cannot have any grain alcohols so I am guessing that is the problem.

I guess there is a possibility of intolerance to about anything. I haven't heard of arrowroot difficulty, per se. I use it a lot as a thickening agent. In fact, I used it more often that wheat flour for that purpose, even before I found out about my gluten problem. It seems to work quite well for firming up sauces.

I have heard folks before talk about tapioca problems. So that seems to be more common.

STARCH OR FLOUR FROM TAPIOCA IS WRONGLY CALL ARROWROOT;

THE REAL ARROWROOT IS FROM "Maranta arundinacea.L" WHAT HAPPENS TO BE KNOWN FOR ITS HIGH DIGESTIBILITY,IT S THE FINEST STARCH EXISTING

BUT INFORTUNATELY CASSAVA FLOUR IS IN FACT THE MOST SOLD AS "ARROWROOT" STARCH WICH DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME NUTRITIONAL PROPERTIES

SO BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU BUY SOME PRODUCT CONTAINING "ARROWROOT"

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
