"naked" Juice
0

6 posts in this topic

I have been making soy and 'naked juice' brand juice smoothies since going gluten-free this month. BUT now I see maltodextrin as an ingredient. I read the safe and unsafe foods list and the special note about US FDA making sure maltodextrin is made from corn or potato starch. How do I know Naked Juice is ok for sure??? Has anyone out there found any problems with the 'naked juice' products?

This comes from the FAQ section on their website:

Is there gluten in Naked Juices?

All Naked Juice products, with the exception of Green Machine, are gluten free. Fruit and vegetable juices are naturally gluten free. Gluten is the protein within the kernels of wheat, rye and barley grains. The gluten in Green Machine is derived from wheat grass.

Hope that helps.

Here is my letter asking about cross contamination, and the relevant part of their response follows. They basically say they would use a "May Contain" statement if the juice is made on shared equipment with wheat containing products.

Hi,

I have heard good things about Naked Juices, and would love to try them out! I just had a quick question first, though. I have an allergy to wheat, and so I was wondering if any Naked Juice drinks or their ingredients (like the Protein Zone) are handled on the same machines/equipment that also process Naked Juices or other items that have wheat in them (like Green Machine which has "wheat grass" in it). Basically I'm just curious if there is any possibility of cross-contamination, or if some juices are made separately.

Thanks for any info!

We appreciate your interest in trying Naked Juice and understand your concern over the possible presence of wheat in our juices. Here at Naked Juice we follow all FDA guidelines and that includes the labeling of the top eight allergens.

If a product contains any of the top eight allergens (Milk, Egg, Fish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Shellfish, Soy, Wheat) , it will be listed in the ingredient list as well as bolded at the end of the ingredient list. This includes all natural and artificial flavors.

We also use a May Contain' statement that would be listed on the package in the event a product is run on a line that also produces a product that contains a top eight allergen and we cannot be 100% confident that the allergen would not carry over resulting in incidental exposure.

Therefore, we suggest that you review the ingredient list of our products before enjoying them to be sure they are wheat free.

The information from above was posted in 2007 and things may have changed since then. That said, does the bottle you bought have wheat grass as an ingredient? If so it it not safe.

Be warned: Some items with wheat grass or barley grass will also be labeled "gluten free" but don't trust that it means they are free enough of gluten to consume safely for those with celiac or gluten intolerance. The wheat "grass" was likely harvested/processed with the same equipment as the wheat berries (where the gluten protien is) and it's very likely a few wheat berries are mixed in with the grass.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
