Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract, Hydrolyzed Whey? Gf?
0

3 posts in this topic

On the non-gluten-free food list on this site it only says Hydrolyzed Wheat is not gluten-free, but in another article I read stay away from the word "Hydrolyzed" period.

I have two products. One is Trader Joe's Whey Protein Powder and one of the ingredients is "Hydrolyzed Whey". Another is Anderson's FF Split Pea soup, listing Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract in the ingredients. Can't seem to contact either company and I'm not sure how I'd ask the question anyway.

Anyone know about these two "hydrolyzed" items?

Oh, how I would hate to have to give these products up.

Thank you.

Hydrolyzed means to undergo the addition of hydrogen (or water), yeast is a fungi, and whey comes from milk. These items by their definition wouldn't contain any wheat; however, cross contamination could still be a potential issue. Protien powders are made in factories that also make protien bars and many of these bars contain wheat. This doesn't necessarily mean that the powder will have wheat in it, but could be a concern.

You definately need to be suspect if the ingredient says, "hydrolyzed vegitable protien" as vegitable is too general of a term.

This said, I use a whey protien powder myself on a daily basis, although not TJ's, and I have had Anderson's pea soup once with no problems.

Hope this helps,

Mike

Thank you Mike for your reply and precise description. It all makes perfect sense. My concern was more toward the yeast because of being suspicious of how it was produced, say on bread, which I had read somewhere. (Am I nuts?) Whey was my least concern however, I had to DC the TJ's whey protein because it did list wheat, an initial oversite on my part. I've since gone to using Solgar's "Whey to Go", in hopes that it is ok. (I'm still researching it, since I bought it before being diagnosed gluten intolerant). Good point about the factories making protein bars that contain wheat and thus a set up for cross contamination.

I'll watch out for hydrolyzed veg protein. Thanks for the tip. I'm just about to throw out some veg broth powder for lots of suspicious ingredients, and I believe that was listed as one of them.

I contacted Anderson Soup company and they informed me their soup was in fact gluten-free....Ahhh, I'm in heaven again, and without fear.

Thank you again--- and Happy Holidays,

Kandee

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
