Looking For gluten-free Potato Ships Without Sunflower Oil
0

8 posts in this topic

Having come to recently realize that I'm terribly allergic to sunflower in any form and any amount, I'm rather frustrated. I can't eat corn or tortilla chips because I'm allergic to corn. Now it seems I can't eat anything else. I've hit every store in town and all the chips I could eat have sunflower oil to some degree in them. When the hell did sunflower oil become so popular and why?

Does anyone know of any specialty brands of chips that are of course also gluten-free that are made without sunflower oil or corn? The only thing in the chip aisle I can eat are pork rinds, and while I like them well enough they don't handle a dip :blink:

Yes, I could live without chips quite nicely, but it's just frustrating to have so few options; less and less every day it seems.

Violet,

Could I ask what happens when you eat things with sunflower oil in them?

I'm in the process of trying to rule out other possible food intolerances, & it seems like when I eat tortilla or potato chips (gluten free of course) I still get major "tummy rumbles", bloating, & even some joint/muscle pain. One person mentioned possible potato intolerance, another mentioned maybe it's safflower oil...I don't know what it is. Just wondering what it is for you?

Thanks a bunch!

If you are in Canada, PC makes them with olive oil.

The only Cape Cod chips without a risk of gluten cc are the russet brown ones. The rest are made in the same room as some with gluten and there is gluten "flying around the room" according to the phone rep when I called.

You could always make your own, my mom use to all the time, you can buy a slicer to make potato chips, and use a fry daddy and whatever oil suits you best

A product called Solea uses olive oil. I've seen a couple other brands at the health food store that use olive oil - can't remember the names though.

I remember looking at Cape Cod in Vons, but I didn't buy it either because the label listened a mix of oils, not just canola oil, or because it had a cross contamination warning on it.

The health food store here doesn't stock anything I can eat. I'll see if they have a distributor for Solea. Thanks.

Sunflower oil or seed makes me itch something terrible. I already have an itching issue, but within an hour or so of ingesting sunflower oil it gets really bad.

The corn just makes my stomach rumble and causes gas and bloating. Two totally different allergic reactions. Actually it depends on the product. Popcorn cornstarch and cooked whole corn go straight through me inside fifteen minutes. Corn meal or ground corn causes the rumbling and gas, and some organic fine corn flours cause the least amount of reaction.

    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html
